European Open prize fund increased to £2.4m

Record prize money of £2.4m ($4.24m) will be on offer in this year's European Open at the K Club in County Kildare.

"This announcement keeps the European Open at the forefront of the European Tour in what is a very special year for the K Club and Ireland as we look forward to the 36th Ryder Cup," the tour's executive director George O'Grady said in a news release on Monday.

The K Club will also host the Ryder Cup in September.

Prize money for the European Open which starts on July 6 is up £100,000 on last year when the title was won by Britain's Kenneth Ferrie.
