Which tournaments will Rory be competing in this year?
Rory McIlroy’s 2020 Schedule – When Is Rory Next Playing?
Rory McIlroy is once again playing predominantly in the States this year.
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.
That means that Riviera next week will mark his return to the World No.1 position for the first time in over four years.
From there, Rory will then head to Mexico City for the WGC-Mexico Championship before a very busy March in preparation for the Masters.
His March begins at Bay Hill in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won in 2018, before the Players Championship the following week, where he is defending champion.
The four-time Major winner will then play in the WGC-Match Play, which he won in 2015, after a week off to round out the month.
Instead of taking a week off before Augusta, Rory will tune up at the Valero Texas Open according to his official website.
He’ll be playing in the event for just the second time in his career after finishing runner-up in 2013.
That comes a week before The Masters, where he’ll be aiming to win the Career Grand Slam.
Post-Masters, he has also committed to the Irish Open, which he missed last year.
