The PGA Tour announced a revised golf calendar that calls for the Tour Championship to be held Sept. 3-7. The date of the playoff finale, held at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club, is one week later than originally scheduled.

The PGA Tour has been on hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has not played an event since the first round of the Players Championship last month.

“This is not only exciting news for the Tour Championship but also the City of Atlanta, which will continue to be positively impacted by the tournament as we welcome the top 30 players in the FedExCup standings back to East Lake Golf Club to compete for the FedExCup,” Executive Director Allison Fillmore said in a statement. “While the safety, health and well-being of all involved in the Tour Championship remains our top priority, our preparations continue as we eagerly await another memorable tournament with immense support from our Atlanta community.”

On Monday, the Masters announced that it has been rescheduled for Nov. 9-15 and the British Open announced it has been canceled. The PGA Championship, originally scheduled for May, has been moved to Aug. 3-9. The PGA Tour said it will make further announcements concerning its schedule in the coming weeks.

Here is part of the updated schedule, with the three playoff events and finale at the Tour Championship:
• Aug. 3-9: PGA Championship
• Aug. 10-16: Wyndham Championship
• Aug. 17-23: The Northern Trust
• Aug. 24-30: BMW Championship
• Aug. 31-Sept. 7: Tour Championship
• Sept. 18-21: U.S. Open

“We appreciate the open and collaborative approach taken by each of our tournaments, title sponsors and media partners to get us to this solution,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement. “It’s a complex situation, and we want to balance the commitments to our various partners with playing opportunities for our members – while providing compelling competition to our fans – but all of that must be done while navigating the unprecedented global crisis that is impacting every single one of us. Events of this size are not easy to move, and we are grateful to our host organizations and title sponsors, who are making significant efforts in allowing us an opportunity to look forward to a return to PGA Tour golf.”
