The Inaugural Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs
This year, the PGA Tour Champions includes the inaugural Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, a three-tournament, season-ending competition to determine the Charles Schwab Cup Champion.
“We’re excited to bring playoffs to the Champions Tour starting in 2016. We’re taking what is already a great Champions Tour and making it better, with a more interesting format, increased competition, higher stakes, better for fans,” said Chuck Schwab, Founder of The Charles Schwab Corporation. “And with playoffs, in order to win the Charles Schwab Cup, not only do you have to have a successful season, but now you have to perform in the clutch during the Playoffs, when it counts the most, and against the best competition.”
The 2016 schedule features 26 tournaments in 19 states and 3 countries outside the United States, with total prize money exceeding $55 million and an average purse of $2.1 million. Two of the three Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs events are new tournaments. The PowerShares QQQ Championship, to be held at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, October 24 to 30, will be the first Playoffs event. The Dominion Charity Classic, set for Richmond’s Country Club of Virginia James River Course October 31 to November 6, will be the second Playoffs event. The Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the traditional season-ending event at the Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, November 7 to 13, will be the third and final Playoffs tournament. The Charles Schwab Cup winner will earn a $1 million bonus, and the top five finishers will also receive bonus payouts.
