Unlucky guys, more prize money next time

It has been annonced ahead of the fourth round of the Volvo China Open, that the prize fund for next year’s event - at the Beijing Hong Hua International Golf Club from April 13-16, 2006 - will be raised by $500,000 to $1.8 million.

It will see the winner pick up a prize cheque of $285,000 and signifies Volvo's hopes for golf in China in years to come. The last increase is only a minor 38% rise but the event has seen a massive 450% increase in prize money in the past three years.

Stephen Dodd, recent World Cup winner and the defending champion in Shenzhen, said: “This huge increase in prize money is great news for players on the Asian and The European Tour, and is certain to further enhance the quality of the field, confirming Volvo as the keynote sponsor of golf on both continents.”
