European Tour expands to Argentina

The European Tour will establish a link with another new country on the 2001 schedule with the announcement of the Open de Argentina, which will be played in Buenos Aires from March 29-April 1.

The tournament will be a full-field event, with 50 percent coming from the Association Argentina de Golf and the other 50 percent comprised of members of the European Tour. The event forms the second leg of a South American 'swing,' slotting into the European Tour International schedule one week after the Sao Paulo Brazil Open.

Argentina's positioning as a new destination on the European Tour brings the total number of tournaments to 49 played in 25 different countries. Prize money for the Open de Argentina will be $700,000, and the venue in Buenos Aires is expected to be announced soon.
