As the PGA Tour gets ready to officially announce its new-look 2024 schedule next week, all but five of the Tour’s biggest tournaments, in a slight change of course, will feature cuts.

The news was first reported by Golfweek’s Eamon Lynch and confirmed to by a source with knowledge of the 2024 PGA Tour schedule that will be unveiled on Tuesday at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, the first playoff event. The Tour told Golfweek that it would not offer comment until its official announcement.

As part of the new schedule, there will be 16 of what will now be called, as’s Sean Zak first noted, signature events – formerly called elevated and then designated – this upcoming season: the four major championships, The Players, three FedExCup playoff events, The Sentry, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational, RBC Heritage, Wells Fargo Championship, Memorial Tournament and Travelers Championship. Except for the Maui event formerly known as the Tournament of Champions, Pebble and Genesis (the non-signature WM Phoenix Open bisects the latter two), they will be paired and staggered on the calendar and separated by at least two consecutive non-signature events, which’s Rex Hoggard reported in May.

The Tour had already revealed that these events would feature smaller fields (70 to 80 players in most cases, excluding the majors, Players and Sentry), plus larger purses and FedExCup payouts, and no cuts. However, that last part was unpopular with a portion of the Tour’s tournament hosts and membership, including Tiger Woods, who said during the Masters, “There’s still some ongoing discussions about some of the designated events and whether or not we’re going to have cuts going forward. I certainly am pushing for my event [the Genesis Invitational] to have a cut.”

The Tour’s chief tournaments and competitions officer, Andy Pazder, told Hoggard in June, “We’ve announced that they would be no-cut events but that’s something that if there’s support for a change there, could be that it’s some of the designated events, all of the designated events or none of the designated events [have a cut], we’ll have a conversation around that.” has confirmed Golfweek’s initial report that cuts will be part of all but five of the signature tournaments. The events that won’t have cuts will be The Sentry, Pebble, Heritage, Wells Fargo and Travelers. For the non-major, non-playoff and non-Players events with cuts – Genesis, API and Memorial – the cut will be the top 50 and ties or, as one source said, the 10-shot rule.
