2020 European Tour schedule: Revised schedule

The European Tour announced in May a revised schedule, including a six-week UK swing and revamped Rolex Series.

The Tour later announced the Dunhill Links will be cancelled. A statement read: “The size and complexity of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, played over three courses with 168 professionals and 168 amateurs, makes it very difficult to stage safely within the current guidelines given the uncertainties we are all facing.”

Then it was confirmed the Irish Open would be played in Northern Ireland for the fourth time in the last eight years when Galgorm Castle hosts the tournament from September 24-27.

The tournament, played a week after the US Open, has moved into the date vacated by the rescheduling of the Ryder Cup into next year.

The second UK Swing then became four events with the announcement of the inaugural Scottish Championship, which will take place at Fairmont St Andrews, as well as two new events in Cyprus.
