Europe-Asia merger is ‘only way forward,’ says Bjorn


CHON BURI, Thailand: European Tour veteran Thomas Bjorn has described a proposed merger with the Asian Tour as “the only way forward,” despite concern among some Asian players. Bjorn, who is chairman of the European Tour’s tournament committee which represents players’ interests, said Asian players shouldn’t worry about losing playing opportunities if the mega-tour goes ahead. The proposal to combine the tours’ business dealings and memberships could be a game-changer, but some Asian players are concerned about being squeezed out by European stars.
