The Irish Open has moved to the end of May and a new UK event has been confirmed
2020 European Tour Schedule Revealed
The European Tour's 2020 schedule has been released with a minimum of 46 tournaments taking place across 29 countries.
The Rolex Series returns for its fourth season and all eight events stay the same from this year with Abu Dhabi, Ireland, Scotland, England, Italy, Turkey, South Africa and Dubai.
The main headline is that the Irish Open's move to the end of May has been confirmed due to the fact that it would have clashed with the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational which moved due to the Olympics.
The course is yet to be announced but Rory McIlroy has confirmed he will be playing it after missing the tournament this year.
Whilst that shouldn't affect the tournament too badly, it does rule out any likelihood of the big names coming to play.
Immediately following the British Masters is a brand new UK event.
We've heard nothing about that other than that more details to come on that later this year.
The Andalucia Masters will see Ryder Cup points multiplied by 1.5 from then until the end of the qualifying period at the BMW PGA Championship.
Wentworth stays in September for 2020 and is a week earlier in the calendar.
It is bad news for the Open de France, a Rolex Series event just two years ago, which still has no sponsor and is now clashing with the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational.
