New Event Added to European Senior Tour


The European Seniors Tour has announced a new tournament for its 2001 schedule. The Wales Seniors Open will be held at Royal St. David's, Harlech from June 8-10.
The event's 500-thousand-pounds in prize money is tied for the highest purse on the European Seniors Tour with the Senior British Open.
The event was added to the European Seniors Tour schedule thanks to the backing given by public and private sector partners in the Wales 2009 Ryder Cup bid.
Andy Stubbs, Managing Director of the European Seniors Tour said: 'We are indebted to the Wales Ryder Cup Bid Committee for this significant addition to our schedule and in particular, Brian Huggett, who has long championed the case for Wales to host major golf tournaments.'
