The DP World Tour has announced a change to its early 2022 schedule due to ongoing restrictions associated with the global Covid-19 pandemic.

The Qatar Masters, scheduled for February 10-13, has been postponed until later this spring and will be replaced by a second $2 million tournament in Ras Al Khaimah.

The Ras Al Khaimah Classic will follow the Ras Al Khaimah Championship (February 3-6), with both events taking place at Al Hamra Golf Club.

Those back-to-back tournaments mean the DP World Tour’s Middle East swing remains at four events, with the Ras Al Khaimah double-header preceded by the first two Rolex Series events of 2022 — this week’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship (January 20-23) and the Dubai Desert Classic (January 27-30).
