DP World Tour is forced to change the game schedule

DP World Tour is forced to change the game schedule

The ‘African Swing’, the DP World Tour competition played in South Africa in coordination with the Sunshine Tour, got off to a bad start and now the whole structure has changed, meaning two competitions are missing from the DP World Tour.
The Joburg Open, which was the Tour’s first DP World competition after the tour changed its name from the European Tour, has been canceled after two rounds held last Saturday. This is after intermittent and long periods of weather. But apart from the fact that the weather has compromised the game and schedule, large parts of the starting field have left the competition and South Africa after the discovery of the new alternative to the Covid virus and that Great Britain was quick to put South Africa and four other African countries on the red list for travel.
Anyway, the Joburg Open was won by South African Thurston Lawrence. The competition will also count as the DP World competition and will remain on the schedule.

Alfred Dunhill commented

Neither the South African Open will take place this week, nor the Alfred Dunhill tournament in two weeks.
Due to the new covid variant, the DP World Tour and Sunshine Tour came out with a joint statement announcing that the South African Open would be held, but only as a Sunshine Tour competition and the total prize money would be reduced to $500,000. However, the Alfred Dunhill tournament, which was scheduled to take place at Leopard Creek CC on December 9-12, will be completely canceled.

The Sunshine Tour is a professional tour of South Africa with most competitions taking place in South Africa.
