The PGA Tour schedule for 2023 was fairly straightforward before commissioner Jay Monahan announced a series of bombshells ahead of last week's Tour Championship.

The dates of each event remained the same, but now, the top 20 players from the Player Impact Program will be required to play in 20 events next year. 

Securing the future of the Tour's best players was the main aim of these new innovations which were discussed by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy and a number of other players two weeks ago in a special meeting.

This will include 12 Elevated Events, four major championships, The Players Championship and three other tournaments of the players' choice. Four Elevated Events are still yet to be decided.

The Sentry Tournament of Champions, the Genesis Invitational, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Memorial Tournament, the WGC Match Play and the three FedExCup Playoffs events constitute the first eight confirmed Elevated Events.

The four new Elevated Events will have prize purses of $20 million. The Tour Championship and FedEx Cup bonus pool in 2023 will be $75 million.

70 players will start the first FedEx Cup Playoff event at the FedEx St. Jude Championship. 50 will make it to the BMW Championship and as usual, 30 will play in the finale. 

The PIP has also been expanded to a $100 million prize pool for the top 20 players who excel in Internet Searches, General Awareness, Golf Fan Awareness, Media Mentions and Broadcast Exposure.

These changes to the schedule which begin next month have been brought forward in a rapid fashion due to the development of the LIV Golf Tour.

In 2023, there will be 44 events and here is the full PGA Tour 2023 schedule below:
