Default 2018 Pdga Majors, NTs, and Tour events

https://www.pdga.com/2018-tour-sched...-now-available

A couple things pop out. Toboggan(DGPT), Golden Gate Park(DGPT) and Iron Hill(NT). All the DGPT events are A-tiers next year. I still think Bg Ams needs to be a major...

The pros don't make it to the Eastern Time Zone until July 20 (Idlewild) and not for good until August 24 (Vibram). Lots of interesting venues. Intrigued by the San Francisco one.

With the weather here in the east being very unpredictable, it makes sense for them to stay out west early in the year.

I would be floored if the DGPT event was held on the Toboggan course. The park has been adamant in it's recent decision to restrict that courses use to one event per year. Great Lakes Open has been held in the Northern Detroit Metro suburbs for the last couple years. Interesting that Hudson Mills has recently decided to put in Innova baskets, in a park that Discraft has done a lot for over the years. Interesting for sure. I have no inside knowledge, but it would be surprising. They would have to completely pull the course and put it in a few weeks later. I will try to look into it.

Venue for SF is to be determined.

According to Steve Dodge earlier today (and on the DGPT website) it's Toboggan.

More Toboggan is always a good thing.

Am I the only one who noticed that the European Masters will be replaced with the Konopiste Open next year, and that the DGWT is only three events, two of which are majors?

I also really like the DGPT schedule and the revamped timing of Idlewild and Ledgestone, should hopefully lead to more top tier pros playing there. Kinda surprising to see that the Nick Hyde Memorial dropped off the DGPT, but I'd imagine that'll still be a highly attended event.

Maybe a different Toboggan design is needed for DGPT? The Am Nats design is more blue level with an SSA in the 56-57 neighborhood.

Anyone know why the NHM was pulled from the DGPT? Or care to speculate?
