World rankings boost for minor tours

Players on the Asian Tour, Canadian Tour, BUY.COM Tour and European Challenge Tour will be able to earn official world-ranking points in 2000.

Among other things, the OWGR determines certain exemptions from qualifying for major championships and the World Golf Championship events.
