The South African Open hosted by the City of Johannesburg (January 9-12) then kicks off the 2020 calendar year, and will be followed by the Middle East Swing comprising the first Rolex Series event of the season, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA (January 16-19), followed by the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (January 23-26) and the Saudi International Powered by SBIA (January 30-February 2).

February begins in earnest with a return to Australia for the innovative ISPS Handa Vic Open (February 6-9), where men and women will once again compete alongside each other at the same venue. The first two World Golf Championship events of 2020 – the WGC-Mexico Championship (February 20-23) and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship (March 25-29) then take place either side of the Oman Open (February 27-March 1), the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters (March 5-8), the Magical Kenya Open presented by Absa (March 12-15) and the Hero Indian Open (March 19-22), before the first Major Championship of the season, the Masters Tournament, at Augusta National (April 9-12).
