Keep up to date with the ever-changing European Tour schedule for the 2019-20 season

The 2020 European Tour schedule was due to begin at the Hong Kong Open and Dunhill Championship on the final weekend in November 2019 and end, as always, at the DP World Tour Championship in November 2020. But, as with the PGA, LPGA, and Ladies European Tours, the schedule has been crippled by the coronavirus outbreak.

2020 European Tour schedule: Postponements and cancellations

In November it was confirmed the Hong Kong Open would be postponed until the new year due to civil unrest in the area. The event was played in January and won by Australian Wade Ormsby but the European Tour did not co-sanction the event.

In February it was announced that two more Asian Tour co-sanctioned events have been postponed, this time due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Maybank Championship, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was due to be played from April 16-19, the week after the Masters, but has been pushed back at the request of the title sponsor. The Volvo China Open, originally scheduled for the following week, has also been delayed.

A month later it was confirmed that the Magical Kenya Open, which was due to be played from March 12-15 at Karen Country Club in Nairobi, will not take place.

Two more events fell soon after as the European Tour announced that the Hero Indian Open, due to take place from DLF Golf & Country Club March 19-22, was also cancelled. This means there will be no regular European Tour events between the Qatar Masters, which ended on March 8, to the Andalucia Masters in Spain, which begins on April 30.

On the same day, it was reported that the D+D Real Czech Masters will also not be played, despite it not being until August.

Then the Andalucia Masters hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation was postponed due to the travel restrictions in Spain, as was the Made in Denmark. It was also announced that GolfSixes would be cancelled.

On March 30, the European Tour announced the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open would be postponed.

Tournament host Graeme McDowell said: “As important as the Irish Open is to all of us, everyone’s health is our only concern. My thoughts are with everyone affected by the crisis and I hope everyone keeps safe and well during these difficult times.”
