European Tour UK Swing Schedule
Thanks to the Coronavirus, as many as 30 tournaments were cancelled or postponed on the European Tour which saw chief executive Keith Pelley look at alternative ways of staging golf tournaments.
Eventually the idea of a 'UK swing' of golf tournaments was created and you can check out the full six-week schedule below.
Italian Renato Paratore won his second European Tour title with a dominating display.
That was followed by the Hero Open at the Marriott Forest of Arden where Sam Horsfield won his maiden European Tour title, beating Belgium's Thomas Detry by one stroke.
The English Championship at Marriott Hanbury Manor came next before the series headed to Wales.
Andy Sullivan won the event by seven strokes after finishing at 27 under par.
From there the Tour staged two tournaments, the Celtic Classic and Wales Open, at Celtic Manor, the Welsh course that hosted the thrilling 2010 Ryder Cup.
Sam Horsfield won the Celtic Classic by two strokes for his second career victory and second within the space of three weeks.
Frenchman Romain Langasque then won the following event in the Wales Open, coming back from five strokes behind after 54-holes thanks to a bogey-free 65 on Sunday.
The series of tournaments will conclude with the UK Championship at The Belfry, another venue that has played a key role in the history of the Ryder Cup.
Importantly there will also be 10 U.S. Open spots up for grabs during the UK swing. After qualification was cancelled, it was announced the top 10 on the mini order of merit after the fifth event, the Wales Open, who haven’t already made it into the US Open will qualify into Winged Foot.

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well.
Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
Sam is currently playing:
Driver: Titleist TS3
Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees), Nike Covert Tour 2.0 (19 degrees)
Irons (4-PW): Titleist AP2
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 54˚, 58˚
Putter: Scotty Cameron Circa 62 #6
