DP, two new tournaments have been added

Two tournaments have been added to the 2022 DP World Tour schedule. These are the Mallorca Golf Open (October 20-23) and the Portugal Masters (October 27-30). These two events fill the void left by the two meetings scheduled in China at the same time and ultimately canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

DP, schedule

The month of October 2022 will have a very strong Iberian connotation since three of the four tournaments on the calendar will take place in Spain. After the Acciona Open de España (€1.75 million prize pool) in Madrid (October 6-9) followed by the Estrella Damm NA Andalucia Masters (€3 million) in Valderrama (October 13-16) , the European Tour will head from October 20 to 23 to the island of Mallorca for the Mallorca Golf Open (1.75 million euros).

The last stage of this autumn series in southern Europe, with a prize money equivalent to the Mallorca Golf Open, will take place in Vilamoura (Algarve) for the Portugal Masters scheduled for October 27-30 on the Dom Pedro course.

Victoria. This will be the 16th edition of a tournament that first appeared on the calendar in 2007. Last year, Belgian Thomas Pieters won there ahead of Frenchman Matthieu Pavon and Danes Lucas Bjerregaard and Nicolai Hojgaard.

On the other hand, the Cyprus Open, which was to take place from November 3 to 6 at the Aphrodite Hills Resort, has been canceled. The end of the 2022 season on the DP World Tour will therefore be summed up in November with the Nedbank Golf Challenge (November 10-13) and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai (November 17-20).

Two richly endowed tournaments: 6 million dollars for the first and 10 million dollars for the second. The PGA European Tour is an organization that runs the three major men's professional golf tours in Europe: the elite European Tour, the European Seniors Tour and the Challenge Tour development tour.

Its headquarters are at the Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, Surrey, England. The European Tour is the most important golf tour in Europe and, for international prestige, is second only to the PGA Tour which is based in the United States.
