2006 European tour, to have new events

As if the 2006 European tour schedule didn't have enough events, three more have just been added.

The season started in Shanghai last week with the opening Champions Tournament, won by England's David Howell. The other two new events are the Royal Trophy in Bangkok on 7-8 January and the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in the United Arab Emirates from 19 January.

The Royal Trophy will be hosted in a Ryder Cup style event, seeing the best of Europe go head to head with the best of Asia.

In addition, the Austrian Open is making a return after nine years and will will take place between 8-11 June. Two new courses will also feature on the 2006 schedule. Beijing's Honghua International Golf Club will host the China Open in April and the Grove in Hertfordshire will stage the WGC-American Express Championship in September.

So that comes to a grand total of 50 events, including the four majors. That's one booked up diary!!
