The Rocket Mortgage Classic is scheduled for June 24-30 at the Detroit Golf Club.
The PGA Tour season will end before the end of August to avoid clashing with the opening American football fixtures.
In the 2018-19 schedule, the FedEx St. Jude Invitational will follow the season's final major championship - The Open Championship - on the schedule and will be followed by the regular season's final event, the Wyndham Championship, before transitioning into the FedExCup Playoffs, which have been shortened to three events.
To accommodate the PGA Championship moving to May, the tour's flagship event, the Players Championship, will return to a March date that it held on the calendar through 2006.
In both June and July of next year, one new tournament will make its debut on the PGA Tour schedule.
The two tours announced a season-long competition with Aon on Monday.
"The PGA TOUR stop in Detroit is the latest major announcement confirming Detroit is well on its way to becoming one of our country's premier entertainment destinations", Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said in the original release. The tournament is the first to transition from the Champions to the PGA Tour.
The PGA Tour is expected to announce a revamped playoff format later this year. TPC Boston will remain part of the FedExCup Playoffs, rotating with greater New York City every other year as the host of The Northern Trust, beginning in 2020.
TPC Twin Cities in Blaine will play host to the FedEx Cup event running July 1-7.
Meanwhile, The Players Championship, which once occupied the month of May, will be played March 11-17, 2019. It will be followed by the 3M Open in Minnesota and the John Deere Classic.
Two tournaments on the schedule no longer have title sponsors listed with their names - the Mayakoba Classic (previously OHL) in Mexico and Reno-Tahoe in Nevada, which previously had been called the Barracuda Championship. "This will enhance the visibility of the FedEx Cup playoffs and overall fan engagement with the PGA Tour and the game as a whole".
While The Open, to be played at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland next year, becomes the last of the four majors, it will be a mad dash to the finish for PGA Tour players.
