In the 50-year history of the European Tour, nothing has ever happened on Sunday at the Dubai DP World Tour Championship, the last event of the season: the Americans can win the golf race in Dubai. The British Open 20222 fans can buy British Open Tickets from our website.

Collin Morikawa, who won this year’s British Open, finished first, followed by BMW PGA Championship champion Billy Horschel. Both players are American and are part of the PGA Tour and the European Tour.

Last year around this time, 2018 Masters Champion Patrick Reed entered the competition. But Lee Westwood from England won the championship for the third time. (This competition was previously known as the Medal of Merit.)

The World’s number one player Jon Rahm is lurking in third place, but he announced on Sunday that he would not play in Dubai. Still, aside from the constant changes in professional golf, it’s not clear why the US top will rise on the European Tour and what this means.

World Tour Championship

The tour used to be an area for European and non-American players. The European Tour early in his career to testing his mettle and earn a PGA Tour membership, he won four major titles. Then it became a testing ground for future stars, just as Brooks Koepka of the United States entered.

Today, the nationality of the Dubai leader may not matter as next year’s European Tour won’t even be called the European Tour. Last week, the European Tour Group, the parent company of the tour, announced that its showpiece will be called the DP World Tour from 2022.

When asked about the dominance of the United States in the year-long competition and what it means, even the CEO of the European Tour, Keith Pelley, is at a loss.

“For November 2020, I will answer this question in a very different way,” he said.

Referring to the announcement of a strategic alliance between the PGA Tour and the European Tour.

Pelley said: “We are no longer competing for top players, it made much more sense for an American to participate in the Dubai game. Before the PGA Tour became our partner, not a competitor. Collin Morikawa and Billy Horschel are great players and great game ambassadors, and we are grateful to them. The importance of American winning will have been much greater in the past.”

British Open Golf

The PGA Tour and the European Tour have traditionally been competitors for players and commercial revenue. But after the Covid lockdown, we entered into a partnership.

Last year, when major events such as the Masters, Open, PGA Championship, and British Open were initially cancelled or postponed. The two tours came together to see which events could be held safely and securely. Major held even though there are no fans.

Through this partnership, the PGA Tour acquired a 15% stake in the European Tour Group in May. Rankings, events to other events, and these are counted towards the rankings of the two tournaments.

Three such events will be held next year: the Genesis Scottish Open, the Barbasol Championship, and the Barracuda Championship.

“There is no doubt that the two organizations will grow stronger through collaboration,” Rick Anderson, PGA chief media officer.

Nevertheless, the importance of such collaboration for golfers is not as easy to solve as schedules. Commercial licenses, and high advertising costs.

As the golf ecosystem became more and more intertwined. This mishmash of partnerships and brand journeys emerged, but it was also incredibly chaotic. There used to be a distinct difference in the meaning of travel. The PGA Tour and the European Tour have always been rivals in the 1990s. And the players in each tour really only cross the Atlantic to compete in majors like the Masters or the British Open.
