The 2018 Champions Tour schedule begins in January in Hawaii and concludes in November in Arizona, and is bookended by two unofficial-money events. There are 27 official-money tournaments, five of which are major championships. Twenty-four of those 27 events are "regular season" tournaments, followed by the three-tournament Charles Schwab Cup finale.
Two of the tournaments on the 2018 Champions Tour schedule are new: the Ally Challenge in Grand Blanc, Mich., in September; and the Sanford International on week later in Sioux Falls, S.D.
The tournaments that make up the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs are the Dominion Charity Classic, PowerShares QQQ Championship and the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
