Everything you need to know about the 2024 DP World Tour schedule

THERE’S good news for those plying their trade on the DP World Tour – next season they’ll be playing for record prize money of £117 millionan increase of nearly £3.5m compared to 2023. That total doesn’t include the money on offer to the big four, so we’re talking a proper blockbuster year.

The big surprise for yours truly in what will be another busy season is that, once again, for most there will be a break of almost a month after the Open Championship at Royal Troon. It will be played from July 18-21, with the tour then taking a break until August 15 for the Czech Masters. This year there was a short break after The Masters – which has now been cancelled.

Those at the top of their game, however, will be at Le Golf National from August 1-4 for the Olympic golf tournament.

This season ends with the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on November 19 – the new campaign begins next week at The Australian PGA Championship.

If there is one disappointment, it is that there are only six tournaments in Britain and Ireland.

These are exciting times, though. There will be new events in Dubai and Bahrain and the China Open is also returning.

There will also be a race for Dubai divided into three phases during the year.

DP World Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said the changes “guaranteed drama and excitement” throughout the year. “The 2024 season will see our members come together to compete in a global programme, with greater opportunities and rewards than ever before,” he said.

The season will features at least 44 tournaments in 24 countries on five continents.

The three new phases of the Race for Dubai will begin with the five “world swings” from November 2023 to August 2024. It will be followed by a “back nine”, featuring the tour’s most historic events from September to in October and then two DP World Tour Playoffs in November.

The five Rolex Series events will continue to be spread throughout the season, starting with the Dubai Desert Classic in January, before the Scottish Open in July and the BMW PGA Championship in September.

The Abu Dhabi Championship runs from January to November and is held the week before the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.

The decision to move the Abu Dhabi Championship is designed to create a huge end to the season, with the top 70 players in the Race to Dubai standings.

The top 50 at the end of this tournament advance to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai on November 14-17. Jon Rahm won the 2022 tournament, with Rory McIlroy finishing as the season’s top dog for the fourth time.

“The many new and original improvements we have introduced will guarantee drama and excitement for our fans, broadcasters and all our stakeholders throughout the season and means, more than ever, that every week counts on the DP World Tour,” Pelley added.

How the DP World Tour 2024 season will play out

The calendar features what is described as “three new and distinct phases” in the Race to Dubai.

These three phases are as follows:

  • Five Global Swings from November 2023 to August 2024
  • The Back 9 – featuring nine of the DP World Tour’s most historic tournaments and national Opens – from September 2024 to October 2024
  • Two DP World Tour Play-Offs – the Abu Dhabi Championship and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai – in November 2024.

What are global swings?

In the eight months of the campaign launch there will be five individual ‘Swings’, taking part in events in different parts of the world.

These are The Opening Swing, The International Swing, The Asian Swing, The European Swing and The Closing Swing.

Each will have their own individual ranking and champion, each will win $200,000 out of a total bonus amount of $1 million. The champions of each Swing will qualify for each of the ‘Back 9’ events. The five Swings will also provide qualification to the first three events of the Rolex Series.

This phase of the season will include a new Pro-Am event, the Dubai Invitational which will be played at Dubai Creek Resort from January 11-14. The Tour also returns to Bahrain for the first time since 2011 at the Bahrain Championship in early February.

The Volvo China Open (May 2-5) is also returning for the first time in five years.

The Global Swings are followed by a succession of major tournaments on the Back 9, starting with the British Masters hosted by Sir Nick Faldo. This schedule also includes the BMW PGA Championship and the Alfred Dunhill Links.

The top 110 players in the Race to Dubai standings at the conclusion of this phase in October will earn their DP World Tour cards for 2025, with the top 70 then entering the Playoffs.
