Volvo Masters Prizemoney Increased to 4 million Euros

Volvo Masters Prizemoney Increased to 4 million Euros as Order of Merit Race Gathers Pace

Prize money for the 2005 Volvo Masters will increase by ?250,000 to a record ?4,000,000 when the 18th edition of the season-ending tournament takes place at Club de Golf Valderrama, Costa del Sol, Spain, from October 27-30.Defending champion, Ian Poulter of England, will be among a maximum field of 60 seeking the winner?s cheque for ?666,660 at Valderrama as the race to become Europe?s Number One reaches a dramatic climax at Valderrama.

With over ?17,000,000 in official prize money still at stake between this week?s dunhill links championship and the Volvo Masters, two issues have to be resolved, namely the winner of this season?s Vardon Trophy and the final composition of the field to contest the Volvo Masters.Valderrama has witnessed many exciting finales since 1988, and this year promises to deliver another rousing finish to a memorable year. Currently, New Zealand?s Michael Campbell heads The European Tour Order of Merit with ?2,398,201 as he seeks the Vardon Trophy for the first time.
