PGA, European Tours co-sanctions three events in 2022


Miami, Aug.3 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – Aug.4, 2021): The Scottish Open and two US events will be co-sanctioned by the US PGA and European Tours for the 2021-2022 season in a schedule released Tuesday.

As part of a strategic alliance between the circuits, the US PGA will co-sanction the Scottish Open the week before the British Open while the Barbasol and Barracuda championships will offer points on the European Tour route to Dubai. .

“The 2021-2022 PGA Tour schedule, combined with the momentum we have with our now entrenched partnership with the European Tour, places the PGA Tour in a position of strength in professional golf like never before,” said US PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan.

The Irish Open will also have increased the prize money next year.

“This is definitely just the start,” said Keith Pelley, General Manager of the European Tour.

The WGC will be reduced to two events in 2022, with the Mexican Championship being removed from the umbrella and the St. Jude Championship becoming the first stop in the US PGA’s three-event playoff series next August.

The playoff mid-stage, the BMW Championship, will leave Baltimore, Maryland for Wilmington Country Club in Delaware with the 30 best points of the season from there, qualifying for the circuit championship August 25-28. at East Lake in Atlanta.

The US PGA’s 2021-22 campaign kicks off a week before next month’s Ryder Cup at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, Calif., September 16-19.

The CJ Cup will travel from South Korea to the United States for the second year in a row due to Covid-19 issues, this time to be played October 14-17 at the Summit Club in Las Vegas as part of a two week stay after the Shriner’s Children’s Open.

Events remain tentatively scheduled for China and Japan in October.

The 2022 Puerto Rico Open will be played March 3-6 against the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill while the Puntacana Championship three weeks later in the Dominican Republic will be played against WGC Match Play.

The Wells Fargo Championship, usually played at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, will move to TPC Potomac in suburban Washington from May 5-8 as the 2022 Presidents Cup takes place at Quail Hollow.

The Canadian Open, wiped out over the past two years by the Covid-19 pandemic, will return June 9-12 in Toronto, a week before the US Open at the Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy won the last Canadian Open title of 2019 in Hamilton. He would also defend on a different course at Wells Fargo after winning the title at Charlotte last May.

The Masters will be played April 7-10 at Augusta National with the PGA Championship May 19-22 at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the British Open in St. Andrews July 14-17.
