The Frys.com Open will lead off the 2013-14 PGA Tour season and pay full FedEx Cup points, it was announced Tuesday.
In 2013, the PGA Tour will move the season's start from January to October. The Fry's event, which has been part of the Fall Series, is scheduled for the week of Oct. 7-13, 2013. The tournament will follow the Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
The Frys.com Open will still be part of the Fall Series this year and will be held at CordeValle Golf Resort in San Martin.
"The Frys.com Open has been successful since its inception, and with it becoming the first event of the season, we are certain that Fry's Electronics and their tournament staff will elevate the event even further," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said.
The Frys.com Open became a PGA Tour event in 2006 with the first two tournaments played in Las Vegas and the next three in Scottsdale, Ariz. The tournament moved to CordeValle in 2010.
"Duke Butler (tournament president) and I have been striving for this change of schedule for two years, so this is great news," tournament chairwoman Kathy Kolder said. "It should help grow our event in stature, player field, Golf Channel audience, and attendance, therefore increasing net contributions to charity."
