The pro circuit landscape today appears dramatically different than when the PGA TOUR took over the Canadian Tour in 2013. That year they managed to cobble together eight events spread over the 15 weeks form the beginning of June to mid September.
By 2015, there were twelve tournaments from the last week of May through the third week in September, a 17-week period... an obvious improvement. Add in a move from minimum purses rising from $150,000 to $175,000 over the same period and this has to be called a success.
While the tour has yet to officially announce the 2016 schedule, a review of the individual tournament websites did give some indications as to what will happen later this year... Overall it appears that there are 12 tournaments confirmed to be back in the rota (ten existing and two new) while two stops in Ontario are a bit more of a question mark at this point.
