Tours settle differences over Indian Masters

Asian Tour players will almost certainly take part in the European Tour’s controversial new $2.5-million event in India next year after the two sides settled their differences.

Relations between the tours turned sour this year following the announcement in April of the inaugural Indian Masters in 2008. It was condemned by the Asian Tour as “unethical” as the European Tour organised the country’s richest ever event without their involvement.

Leading Indian golfers threatened a boycott. But Asian Tour executive chairman Kyi Hla Han said ”relations are back on track. It looks like we’ll come to an agreement pretty soon, before the end of the year,” he said.

“India is now looking very good for Asian Tour players.” After months of strained ties, Kyi Hla said the two sides finally talked.
