The most anticipated golf tournaments in 2022 that you don’t want to miss

The golf schedule for 2022 began last week with the Tournament of Champions. Still, with a thrilling calendar of competitive competition ahead, we can’t help but fixate on this year’s most anticipated tournaments.

Several up-and-coming players looking to raise their stock and the return of Tiger Woods are just a handful of reasons to become excited. With that in mind, we’re highlighting some of the key tournaments and the dates you want to set a reminder for – and not just the majors – as we look forward to another action-packed year of golfing.

February 3rd – 6th: Saudi International

A somewhat coming out party for the Saudi-based event – which previously coincided with the DP World Tour – has mainly been nothing more than a novelty to pro-golf fans, primarily to witness PGA Tour players wanting to play in the Middle East for extravagant lump sums.

However, this year is delivering more intrigue for the tournament by announcing a potential expansion on the Asian Tour, which could ultimately rival the PGA Tour with a “World Golf Tour”. The PGA Tour has permitted players to partake in the newly instated Asian Tour event.

March 10th – 13th: Players Championship

The global pandemic removed the Players Championship in 2020 and limited capacity in 2021. For 2022 however, the competition is expecting full galleries to witness the expertise of Justin Thomas & company, who notably edged the 2021 Players Championship with an impressive comeback to defeat Bryson DeChambeau and Lee Westwood.

April 7th – 10th: Masters

Nothing can quite bring golf fans together like a major tournament. With the Master’s being the first in its class of 2022, a significant return is expected after two years of absence from Augusta’s highlight aspect: the cheers.

Golf bettors should load their bookmaker’s accounts in preparation, as Hideki Matsuyama will return to defend his history-defining moment in 2021 – this time with a packed crowd to showboat for. The betting odds probably won’t favour the defending champ, but oddsmakers will undoubtedly lower his overall value – nothing that a DraftKings promo code cannot fix.

May 19th – 22nd: PGA Championship

Defending PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson will be hoping the Southern Hills Country Club can fend off some of its notorious blistering heat when it hosts the tournament in May. The Tulsa location and a spring date were announced following the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021.

Tiger Woods was the previous man to obtain a major in Tulsa, but we expect the golfing legend will be watching from the sidelines for this one.

June 7th: Golf’s Longest Day

Over 800 competitors, across ten courses and 36 holes, “Golf’s Longest Day” can provide the most skilful and audacious pros with a placement in the U.S. Open. Ten qualifiers will commence in the U.S. and one in Japan, and it’s Charl Schwartzel who marked his territory in 2021.

June 16th – 19th: U.S. Open

It’s been over 30 years since the national championship took place in Brookline, Massachusetts, but this year’s summer major will return to The Country Club in Mass for a history-rich U.S. Open tournament.

John Rahm will defend his title from Torrey Pines, but perhaps the English native Matt Fitzpatrick can recreate his 2013 USGA amateur success at Brookline with a return to the course.

July 14th – 17th: Open Championship

The 2022 Open Championship is a significant milestone, as it’ll mark the 150th version of the championship, which was first established in 1860.

The event returns to St. Andrews for the 30th Open played at this course, where Zach Johnson was the previous man to win at the Old Course in 2015. However, Collin Morikawa will be defending the 2021 Open Championship title he captured at Royal St. George’s last season.

August 11th – 28th: FedEx Cup Playoffs & Tour Championship

The PGA Tour postseason starts with the FedEx St. Jude Championship. Firstly, those ranked within the top 125 will battle it out in the playoffs before a final-70 will travel to Wilmington Country Club for the 2022 BMW Championship.

Those players who claim a top-30 position will compete for the 2022 FedEx Cup, scheduled at the East Lake in Atlanta. The 2022 edition of the FedEx Cup will also provide a staggering $18 million 1st place prize.

Notable Mentions

  • June 2nd: The Chevron Championship  
  • July 18th: Inaugural U.S. Adaptive Open Championship
