Once again, Fort Worth’s annual PGA Tour stop will fall on Memorial Day weekend in 2018. Michael Tothe, Colonial tournament director, confirmed Sunday that the competition dates for next year’s Dean & DeLuca Invitational will be May 21-27, 2018.

The event will conclude on the Sunday before Memorial Day, as it did this season.

The Colonial tournament will follow the AT&T Byron Nelson (May 14-20, 2018) on next year’s PGA Tour calendar. The 2018 Nelson will be played at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, a first-year venue for the event.

Colonial’s defending champion will be Kevin Kisner, who posted a 10-under total and prevailed by one stroke in Sunday’s final round of the 2017 event. The defending champion at the 2018 Byron Nelson will be Billy Horschel.
