Volvo and European Tour reach agreement through 2004
'Today's announcement of the extension between the European Tour and Volvo to the end of the 2004 season reaffirms the depth of the special, long term relationship that exists between Volvo and the tour,' said Ken Schofield, executive director of the European Tour.
Volvo began its partnership with the tour in 1987 and currently is the title sponsor of the Volvo PGA Championship, the Volvo Masters Andalucia and the Volvo Order of Merit.
'Over the past 15 years, Volvo and The European Tour have established a close partnership which has flourished, thanks to a mutual long term strategy of quality and commitment to excellence,' said Gerry Keaney, managing director of Volvo Car U.K. Limited.
The purse for the 2003 Volvo PGA Championship will increase by 250,000 pounds. This year, 31-year-old Anders Hansen became the first player to earn his maiden title on the European Tour at the event.

Brady compares self to Woods after winning AFC title
Tom Brady and Tiger Woods are two of the all-time greats in their respective sports ... a fact that is not lost on the five-time Super Bowl winning quarterback.
Fresh off leading the New England Patriots to a AFC Championship victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Brady was asked about winning the game despite a cut on his throwing hand - which made national news heading into the matchup.
His response invoked the name of a certain 14-time major winner, something that would be tough to pull off, if not for the fact that he is, you know, Tom Brady.
“I think it's kind of arrogant to say it bothered me when we had a pretty good game, so I wouldn't say that," the 40-year-old told reporters after the game. "It's like when Tiger Woods said, ‘That was my C game’ and he won the tournament."
Tom Brady, postgame, on wearing the wrap on his hand: “I think it's kind of arrogant to say it bothered me when we had a pretty good game, so I wouldn't say that. It's like when Tiger Woods said, ‘That was my C game’ and he won the tournament.”— Ryan Lavner (@RyanLavnerGC) January 22, 2018
Tiger Woods winning with his "C game" may be a distant memory for golf fans, but no matter what game he brings, his next chance to win comes next week at Torrey Pines during his official comeback to the PGA Tour.
Brady has a shot at his sixth Super Bowl title in two weeks. The Patriots would probably benefit from him bringing a little better than his "C game" as well.
