The 2019-2020 European Tour schedule holds steady through the Desert Swing

The 2019-2020 European Tour schedule is going to continue to look different than previous seasons, kicking off with two events.

Now after the biggest first-place check in tournament golf, the European Tour season begins anew in November, with the Hong Kong Open and the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa from Nov. 28-Dec. 1. There are then two events in December before a holiday break until 2020: the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open from Dec. 5-8 and the Australian PGA Championship from Dec. 19-22.

The 2020 European Tour season begins with the South African Open in Johannesburg from Jan. 9-12. The Middle East or Desert Swing starts thereafter, kicking off with the Adu Dhabi HSBC Championship, then the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the controversial Saudi International to end January.

February starts with the ISPS Handa Vic Open in Australia, followed by the WGC-Mexico Championship, the Oman Open, Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, Magical Kenya Open, Hero Indian Open, WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and the Masters.

The full 2019-2020 European Tour schedule will be relased later.
