Rory McIlroy’s 2020 Schedule – When Is Rory Next Playing?

Rory McIlroy is once again playing predominantly in the States this year with the Coronavirus pandemic limiting any significant travel around the world.

The four-time Major winner fully committed to the PGA Tour in 2019 for the first time due to him now living in Florida with his wife Erica.

To say it paid off would be an understatement, with Rory winning over $22.5m on the PGA Tour alone.

McIlroy won four times last year including the Tour Championship/FedEx Cup and was named PGA Tour Player of the Year.

He also won the Players Championship, RBC Canadian Open and WGC-HSBC Champions.

This year he is once again be focusing on the PGA Tour and began his 2020 at the Farmers Insurance Open on 22nd January.

He finished T3rd at Torrey Pines and that result, along with some other factors, has helped him climb back to the top of the world rankings.

He followed that with a tied-5th finish at Riviera, a sole fifth place at the WGC-Mexico Championship, and then another tied-5th at Bay Hill in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

After competing in the TaylorMade Relief Challenge alongside Dustin Johnson in a match against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff, the first official PGA Tour event Rory has committed to is the Charles Schwab Challenge.

He has also acknowledged that he intends to play a week later at Harbour Town in the RBC Heritage, and the week after that in the Travellers Championship as well.

Speaking to the PGA Tour McIlroy said; “That’s my plan, play the first three. I think it will be nice to get back out and play,” McIlroy said. “Obviously we’re going to have to take as many precautions as possible to be able to put TOUR events on again, but I think the PGA Tour has got a very robust plan in place, and if they can execute it the right way, I see no reason why we can’t start June 11. If we do, I’ll be ready to go in Fort Worth.”
