Sir Michael Bonallack becomes European Tour director

Sir Michael Bonallack, former secretary of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, is to become a non-executive director of the European Tour.

Bonallack said: "I have always said that if you have the chance in this life of combining your passion and your profession then you should take it and this opportunity to work with the European tour offers a new and invigorating challenge.

"I look forward to being involved with so many old friends and to meeting others not already known to me.

"The tour has come a long way in a short time and I will do all I can to make a meaningful contribution."

Ken Schofield added: "Michael was arguably the finest European amateur golfer in the game's history and few people, as a player or as an administrator, are so highly regarded around the world by amateurs and professionals alike.

"He is the most modest of men and a true sporting ambassador and his reputation for upholding the traditions of the game internationally, in addition to promoting the sport worldwide, makes him ideal for this new role."
