CIMB Classic is second stop for 2016-2017 PGA Tour

The PGA Tour has released its 2016-17 season schedule with the CIMB Classic at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC) well-positioned on October 20-23 as the second of 47 FedExCup events.

CIMB Classic 2015 - Round TwoThe seventh edition of the CIMB Classic returns to KLGCC for the fourth year running and will be played the week before the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia at the same venue. The next event on the PGA Tour schedule is the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club in China.

The 2017-2017 season starts with the Safeway Open on October 13-16 at Silverado Resort and Spa in California, which also begins the tour’s seven-tournament run through November before the year-end break. The schedule resumes in January with one of the highlights of the early part of the year being the Mexico Championship on March 2-5, a World Golf Championships event which moves from South Florida to Mexico City through a new seven-year sponsorship deal with Grupo Salinas.

Several events move back to more traditional slots after changes made this year due to the Rio Olympics in August. These include the PGA Championship which returns to August (10-13) from a July date in 2016, the Travelers Championship (from the first week of August to June 22-25), the John Deere Classic (from the second week of August to July 13-16) and both the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and Barracuda Championship (from the first week of July to August 3-6).

The FedExCup Playoffs will have a new sponsor and venue for its opening event in The Northern Trust on August 24-27 at Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, New York. The playoffs continue with the Deutsche Bank Championship’s traditional Monday finish on September 4 before taking a one-week break, resuming with the BMW Championship (September 14-17) at Conway Farms near Chicago and concluding September 21-24 with the Tour Championship.  The very next week, The Presidents Cup will be held at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City.
