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.

Close House Colt

The Lee Westwood Colt Course at Close House will host the first event of the UK swing

The behind-closed-doors schedule started with the Betfred British Masters hosted by Lee Westwood at Close House in Newcastle on the 22nd July.

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.
