British Masters Moving Forward To July & Forest Of Arden Hosting First Of Four ‘No Spectator’ Events.

Lee Westwood’s hosting of the Betfred British Masters will herald a return to the European Tour.

The Euro 2m event is being moved forward and will now be held from July 23rd to 26th and opposite the 3M Open on the PGA Tour and with the following week to be the hosting of the WGC – FexEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis.

As well, it is understood the British Masters will not be held at Close House, and as appears on the Race to Dubai schedule, but move to the Forest of Arden and where there is a multi-room on-course hotel.

As reported earlier by www.golfbytourmiss.com the Tour will also announce the hosting of three new Euro 1m tournaments.

Two of the events, it is also understood, will take place at Celtic Manor in Wales and the third, and what will be a fourth straight tournament in the UK, at Hanbury Manor and a former European Tour host course also boasting a large on-course hotel.

It is for this very reason the courses have been chosen for their large hotels, and in a move that will help the Tour better monitor people attending the events.

And just like the PGA Tour, all four events will not allow spectator attendance.

Tee off in the British Masters will signal the end of what will be a 137-day lay-off since Spain’s Jorge Campillo beat Scot David Drysdale in a play-off on March 8th to win the Qatar Masters.

Golfbytourmiss  has already revealed those who attained 2020 Tour membership will be fully exempt for the 2021 European Tour season while there will no end-of-season European Tour Q-School meaning no players progressing through from the secondary Challenge Tour.
