Lyoness Open Agrees A New Five Year Deal With European Tour

The European Tour have agreed a new five year deal for The Lyoness Open to feature in the Race To Dubai until 2019 .

The tournament held in Austria will see it’s tenth consecutive staging next year but also held the event between 1990 and 1996 in the past and has had famous winners with the likes of Bernhard Langer and Paul McGinley.

The prize money has increased a bit since those days, and as part of the new agreement the 2015 tournament will see the prize money increase by 50% from €1,000,000 to €1,500,000. Diamond Country Club will be the host again next year as it has been since 2010.

This years event was won by Mikael Lundberg after holing a 40ft putt in a play-off against home favourite Bernd Wiesberger who was the winner of the event back in 2012.

This is a really excellent tournament and to have it as part of the Race To Dubai until 2019 is a great thing for the tour and for the players.

Larrazábal Seeks His Third European Tour Title

Pablo Larrazábal is heading into this weeks Lyoness Open in great form and will be looking to get back to winning ways after a two year gap since his last win on tour.

The Spaniard has been in decent form this season notching up four top tens already and thinks that his third European Tour title is just around the corner.

He performed well at this course last year opening with a 64 and eventually taking a share of tenth place, so he will be hoping for much of the same this time round and  maybe go one better.
