Outlook good for Dunhill Links Championship

The Dunhill Links Championship, which was a noticale omission from the 2002 European Tour's schedule after criticism of this year's new pro-celebrity format, could be back for 2002 after all.

Iain Banner, from Dunhill, was positive about the tournament's future. "We're busy working on it," he assured the South African press.

Ernie Els, the defending champion at the Nedbank Sun City Challenge, used his pre-tournament press conference to object about the treatement handed out to Dunhill by the British press. Els hoped the journalists had not done "too much damage" to the event which players and celebrities had enjoyed.

Some of the complaints, included the unusal measure of cutting many of the amateur's handicaps and the lack of information made available to the media. Journalists feeling that the sponsors made such efforts over the celebrities and players that there was little attention paid to the many other people that go to make a tournament a success.
