The European Tour’s drive for inclusivity in golf continued apace with the announcement that two tournaments for Golfers with Disability will be run alongside two of this season’s biggest Rolex Series events.
In conjunction with the European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA) — which founded the new World Rankings for Golfers with Disability (WR4GD) now administered by the World Amateur Golf Ranking — the 36-hole EDGA Scottish Open and the 36-hole EDGA Dubai Finale will be played on the weekends of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai at Jumeirah Golf Estates.
Ten male golfers taken from the WR4GD will have the opportunity at the EDGA Scottish Open from July 13-14 to tackle the same course set up as the European Tour professionals while the EDGA Dubai Finale will be of a similar model except the tournament will be played on Friday and Saturday (November 22-23), with eight players eligible for that event.
