2019 European Tour International Schedule

The elevation of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship to a Rolex Series event and the continuation of the British Masters are two of the many highlights of the 2019 European Tour International Schedule, with 48 tournaments in 31 countries spanning five continents.

There are 47 tournaments counting towards the Race to Dubai, including the eight tournaments which form the Rolex Series events, the premier tournament category on the European Tour, each of which has a minimum prize fund of US$7 million.

The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship has long been recognised as one of the stand-out tournaments on the European Tour and its elevation to the Rolex Series – with an associated prize fund rise from US$3 million to US$7 million – now reflects that.

It takes its place alongside the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open, the BMW PGA Championship, the Italian Open, the Turkish Airlines Open, the Nedbank Golf Challenge and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, in the line-up for the third year of the Rolex Series.

While the Rolex Series tournaments in Ireland and Scotland retain their July date and those in Turkey, South Africa and Dubai remaining in November, there are changes for the BMW PGA Championship which moves from May to September, and the Italian Open which moves from June to October.

Other tournaments to change their 2019 dates include the Open de France, which moves from June to October and the Andalucia Valderrama Masters from October to June.

The AUD$3 million tournament is Australia’s richest and sees men and women professionals play on the same course at the same time for an equal share of the prize fund. Preceding yet another innovative tournament on the schedule – the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth – this represents the first time the European Tour has staged back-to-back tournaments in Australia since 2004.
