ScheduleEdit

The McGladrey Classic was moved up two weeks from 2014. The CIMB Classic and WGC-HSBC Champions have each been moved back one week from 2014. The Sanderson Farms Championship is now an alternate event to the WGC-HSBC Champions, instead of being an alternate to The Open Championship as in recent years. The new Barbasol Championship was an alternate event to The Open Championship. It also marked the first time the PGA Tour hosted an event in Alabama in 25 years, when the state hosted the PGA Championship. The WGC-Cadillac Match Play was moved back two and a half months to May, and has relocated back to California, its primary home from 1999 to 2006.

The following table lists the events for 2014–15.[2]

The 2014–15 schedule included 47 official money tournaments, and ran from October 9, 2014 to October 11, 2015.
