The Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard cites a source who tells him that the Disney's 2012 tournament, coming up in December, will be the last one at Walt Disney World. The culprit? Beginning with the 2014 season, the tour goes to a "fiscal year" calendar - October to October. So the 2014 season will begin in October 2013. The Disney tournament has always been the final event on the PGA Tour calendar, but under the new schedule format it would have to take place in the first third of the schedule. And the Disney tournament officials apparently don't find that very appealing.
According to Hoggard's source, this is how the early part of the 2013-14 schedule shapes up:
1. Frys.com Open
2. Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Classic
3. CIMB Asia Pacific Classic
4. WGC-HSBC Champions
5. The McGladrey Classic
6. Mayakoba Golf Classic
If the Disney tournament - currently called the Children's Miracle Network Classic but traditionally known as the Disney Classic - really does die, it will be the death of a tournament first played in 1971. And that Jack Nicklaus won each of its first three years.
