DP World Tour

Holding a minimum of 47 tournaments in 27 different countries in the upcoming 2022 season, the DP World Tour is now established as the main global tour for men's professional golf.

Founded in 1972, the European Tour has been replaced by the 2022 DP World Tour. The new season promises to be jam packed with the best golf on show from a string of tournaments.

The schedule includes five Rolex Series events, along with four Major Championships, two World Golf Championship events and three tournaments co-sanctioned with the PGA TOUR. Alongside this, they'll be a minimum of $2million in prize money at each event.

To finish the 2022 season, the field will compete in the final Rolex Series event - the DP World Tour Championship. Many will be hoping to emulate Collin Morikawa, winner of the 2021 DP World Tour Rankings - the Tour's season-long competition.
