European Open prize fund increased again

Prize money for this year's European Open has been increased to a record 2.3 million pounds ($4.39 million), the European Tour said on Tuesday.

The purse has been upped by 100,000 pounds since last year, when South Africa's Retief Goosen eased to a five-shot victory at the K Club in County Kildare, Ireland.

The tournament will take place at the same venue from June 30-July 3 although over a different layout, over the Palmer Course rather than the Smurfit Course.

The Palmer Course staged the event from 1985 to 2003. It will host the 36th Ryder Cup in September 2006.
