Staff report

There is a new season and status for the Boca Raton Championship.

The PGA Tour Champions regular-season event has been upgraded to the second tournament in the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs starting in 2020.

The 2020 Boca Raton Championship will be held Oct. 26 – Nov. 1 at The Old Course at Broken Sound Club, with a 54-player field competing for the final 36 spots and chance to advance to the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship, contested in Phoenix the following week.

In addition to the elevated Playoffs status, the Boca Raton Championship purse will increase from $1.7 million to $2 million starting in 2020. All three rounds of the event will be broadcast live on GOLF Channel.

“The Boca Raton community has supported PGA TOUR Champions for over a decade, and the city’s enthusiasm and support make it a great place to host a Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs event,” said Miller Brady, President of PGA TOUR Champions. “Fans will continue to get unprecedented access to the game’s legends while watching them compete for one of the year’s most prestigious titles.”

Since 2007, PGA TOUR Champions has annually conducted one of its first full-field events in Boca Raton.
