2022 DP World Tour schedule

The opening event of the 2022 DP World Tour schedule – the Joburg Open – was cut to 36 holes due to a combination of travel restrictions in and out of South Africa following the discovery of a new Covid variant and inclement weather.

The SA Open goes ahead as planned from December 2-5 but will not be sanctioned by the DP World Tour, while the Alfred Dunhill Championship has been cancelled. The tour will return in the Middle East in January.
