European Tour Chief Denies Saying EurAsia Cup Is 'A Mistake And Not Sustainable'
European Tour CEO George O'Grady "has strongly denied saying the new EurAsia Cup team tournament was a 'mistake'" after organizers of a rival event claimed he was having second thoughts, according to the AFP. O'Grady was responding to comments from Royal Trophy co-Managing Dir Ivan Ballesteros, who said that "the European boss had told him having two similar, Europe v Asia tournaments was unsustainable." O'Grady said, "I categorically refute the comments that Ivan has attributed to me stating that the EurAsia Cup is a 'mistake' and 'not sustainable.' It is simply not the case" (AFP, 2/5).
