European Tour's 'offseason' ends before it begins

Only days after Tour Championship, 2019-20 season starts in South Africa

0: Length, in weeks, of the so-called offseason on the European Tour as the circuit transitions from last week’s DP World Tour Championship, which ended the 2018-19 season, to this week’s Alfred Dunhill Championship, which begins the 2019-20 season. The tour recently postponed the Hong Kong Open, which had been scheduled to play this week, because of five months of violent protests in Hong Kong. Play in the Alfred Dunhill event begins Thursday at Leopard Creek Country Club in Malelane, South Africa (tee times).
