11.28am 6th April 2020 - Coronavirus News

The European Tour and the Ladies European Tour have announced another raft of tournament postponements and cancellations due to the continuing threat posed by the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The European Tour’s Trophée Hassan II, which was due to be held at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Morocco from June 4-7, has been postponed, while the Scandinavian Mixed hosted by Henrik and Annika, which was scheduled to take place at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club in Sweden from June 11-14, has been cancelled.

The Lalla Meryem Cup on the Ladies European Tour, which was scheduled to take place concurrently with Trophée Hassan II in Morocco from June 4-7, 2020, has also been postponed. 

The decision to postpone both events in Morocco was taken following consultation between the Hassan II Trophy Association, chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid, the European Tour and the Ladies European Tour.  

The Scandinavian Mixed is a new mixed event hosted by Major Champions Henrik Stenson and Annika Sorenstam, with men and women set to go head-to-head for the first time on the same course competing for one prize fund and one trophy. The event will now be included on the European Tour and Ladies European Tour schedules from 2021.
