Tucson's stop on the professional golf tour will continue for at least one more year.
The World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship will return to Dove Mountain in 2012, the PGA announced Monday.
Next year's tournament is scheduled for February 20-26.
The tournament will have a new executive director, veteran golf administrator Gerald Goodman.
Goodman, who replaces Wade Dunagan, was the tournament director at Florida's Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club for 15 years.
Goodman said he's "thrilled" to take the job.
"I look forward to being a part of this event for many years to come, as well as member of the accomplished and professional team that has made it so successful over the years," Goodman said in a press release.
Dunagan ran Tucson's match play from April 2008 through this year.

"It has been an honor to be associated with this event and a privilege to work with Accenture,the Tucson Conquistadores and The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain," Dunagan said. "I am proud of what we have collectively accomplished in the last three years and very proud of the dollars we have raised for charity."
