Over £3m prize fund for European Senior Tour 2000

More than £3million will be up for grabs on next season's European Seniors Tour.

The schedule comprises a minimum of 17 tournaments - the same as 1999 - and includes new venues in Barbados, Germany and Portugal.

Andy Stubbs, managing director, said: "The European Seniors Tour, which started with just two tournaments, has continued to mature as it approaches its ninth season.

"The challenge, of course, is to maintain the progress of the first eight years and we now go into the new millennium safe in the knowledge that the European Seniors Tour is continuing to grow, offering more opportunities for all our members."
