What is the UK Swing

The UK Swing runs from the Betfred British Masters hosted by Lee Westwood (Jul 22-25) until the UK Championship at The Belfry (Aug 27-30). As part of the new Golf for Good initiative - which underpins all events for the remainder of the 2020 season - a mini order of merit will run for all six events in the UK Swing, with the top ten sharing an additional £250,000 to donate to charities of their choice.

Additionally ten spots in the 2020 U.S. Open Championship will be available for the highest placed finishers in the mini order of merit after the first five events.

The USGA has confirmed that the top 10 aggregate points earners in the mini order of merit that are otherwise not exempt at the conclusion of the fifth event – the Wales Open at Celtic Manor - will be exempt for the rescheduled U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club on September 17-20.

The traditional U.S. Open sectional qualifying events, including the European qualifier at Walton Heath in June, were cancelled this season following the upheaval in the global golf calendar due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, with the field now comprised entirely of exempt players.

A full list of U.S. Open exemption categories can be found on usga.org and usopen.com.
