Tiger Woods has backed golf's scheduling change, with the US PGA Championship set to move to May.
Traditionally, the tournament had always taken place in August as the fourth and final Major of the year, but the change means the Open will be the last of the season.
The move is aimed to free up more preparation time and to avoid a clash with the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, which is on the horizon.

Woods, who last won the tournament a decade ago, stated: “Really like and support decision by PGA and the Tour.
"A big event every month and flexibility with schedule including the FedEx Cup.”
With the tournament now moving to May, it means that golf will see a Major per month between April and July.
This starts in April with the Masters at Augusta, and the US Open in June, sandwiched between the Open and US PGA.
In addition to this change, two other notable tournaments have been rescheduled.
The Players Championship will now take place in March instead of May, while the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour moves from May to September.
PGA of America chief executive Pete Bevacqua believes that the refreshed structure to the season will be backed by fans of the sport, who will get to see the big events spread across the year.
Bevacqua said: “It provides our PGA Championship a strong landing spot on the calendar and a consistent major-championship rhythm that golf fans can embrace.
“For nearly 85% of our membership, May is also on the front-end of the golf season.”
Whether Woods is once again competing at a US PGA Championships is yet to be seen, but he sure does back the decision to move the tournament, making sure it doesn't clash with any other sporting events.
