FASHION HAZARDS

These golfers weren't smoking anything when they picked out their outfits. But you might think otherwise when you see what they wore.

The PGA Tour's event in Mexico will anchor a six-tournament schedule next fall that for the first time since 1971 will not include Disney.

The tour next year goes to a wraparound season, offering FedEx Cup points for the six events that will kick off the 2013-14 season. That season will start with the Frys.com Open at CordeValle Golf Club in northern California from Oct. 10-13 and conclude with the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Mexico from Nov. 14-17.

After about a two-month break, the 2013-14 schedule will resume at Kapalua with the Tournament of Champions.

Disney has been part of the PGA Tour landscape since Jack Nicklaus won the inaugural event in 1971. It lost its title sponsor this year and did not renew.
