The 2021 European eTour schedule will feature five regular season events and a Global Finals as the popular golf esports series returns for a second year.
Launched by the European Tour in 2020, in partnership with esports specialists DreamHack Sports Games and Topgolf Entertainment Group, the inaugural season saw more than 800,000 entries as the world’s best players competed in the world’s most popular online and mobile golf game, World Golf Tour (WGT) by Topgolf.
The Portugal Masters is the first event of the 2021 season with players competing in a five-week qualification process, which culminates in the top 128 players competing in a bracket style playoff tournament. From there, the top 8 players will qualify for the live event on the 29th April with players going head-to-head in a knock-out format to determine the winner.
