PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Web.com Tour is starting next year in the Bahamas with two tournaments that will end in the middle of the week.

The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic will be played Jan. 8-11 at Sandals Emerald Bay. The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic will be played Jan. 22-25 at The Abaco Golf Club. Both events will start on Sunday and end on Wednesday.

The schedule change is to give the PGA Tour's chief developmental circuit more attention and to provide Golf Channel with live programming in the middle of the week. Golf Channel will have live golf every day those weeks.

The Bahamas now has four tournaments: the Hero World Challenge in December hosted by Tiger Woods, the two Web.com Tour events and the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic.
