The PGA Championship might be over for the year, but there’s still plenty of golf to watch before 2019 begins. Here are the PGA Tour tournaments in October that are definitely worth changing the channel for:


Safeway Open

October 5-8

Silverado Country Club | Napa, California

Defending Champion: Brendan Steele

Titled the Fry’s Electronics Open until its renaming in 2016, this tournament has been held since 2007. The tournament takes place in beautiful Napa, California and has been played by notable golfers such as Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, and Rickie Fowler. Will Brendan Steele be able to take home the winning trophy for a third consecutive year?


CIMB Classic

October 12-15

TPC Kuala Lumpur | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Defending Champion: Pat Perez

Hosted in Malaysia, the CIMB Classic is the first ever event sanctioned by the PGA Tour in Southeast Asia. It has been held annually since 2010 and has boasted players such as Justin Thomas and Ryan Moore. Defending champion Pat Perez has remained in the middle of the pack this 2018 season, will he return and maintain his number one position?


The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges

October 19-22

Nine Bridges Golf Club | Jeju Island, Korea

Defending Champion: Justin Thomas

The CJ Cup made its debut in 2017, so we are excited to see how year two treats this tournament. Located in South Korea on Jeju Island, this course has made numerous lists as a top golf course in the world and has ranked the best course in South Korea six consecutive times, according to Golf Digest.


Sanderson Farms Championship

October 26-29

Country Club of Jackson | Jackson, Mississippi

Defending Champion: Ryan Armour

This alternate tournament is known for its wonderful charity support. Last year, the tournament donated $1.2 Million to Friends Of Children’s Hospital, a nonprofit organization that raises money for pediatric patient treatment at Batson Children’s Hospital. This classic tour has been held since 1968.


World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions

October 26-29

Sheshan International Golf Club | Shanghai, China

Defending Champion: Justin Rose 

This tournament is THE must-watch. Top ranking players will face off in Shanghai for the highest prize money in East Asia, and one of the highest purses in the world. Some of the best players in history have participated in the WGC-HSCB Champions, and we’re anxiously waiting for this year’s showdown.
