The decision to move the Abu Dhabi Championship from its usual January slot to the penultimate event in November will create a blockbuster end to the season, featuring the leading 70 players on the Race to Dubai rankings.

The top 50 at the end of that tournament then qualify for 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 number one for the fourth time.

The opening eight months of the campaign will feature five individual ‘Swings’, taking in events around different parts of the globe.

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

Each swing will have its own individual rankings and champion, who will each earn $200,000 from an overall $1m bonus pool. The champions of each Swing will qualify for each of the ‘Back 9’ events. The five Swings will also offer qualification into the first three Rolex Series events.

This phase of the season will feature a new Pro-Am event, the Dubai Invitational played at Dubai Creek Resort from January 11-14. The Tour is also returning to Bahrain for the first time since 2011 at the Bahrain Championship at the start of February.

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