The Asian Tour was 'totally aghast' last night after the European Tour announced a US$2.6 million tournament on Cheju island, South Korea, next March. The Ballantine's Championship has not been sanctioned by the Asian Tour and 'represents the European Tour's blatant disregard towards the Asian Tour, the official regional sanctioning body for professional golf in Asia', said the tour's executive chairman, Kyi Hla Han. Last month, the European Tour announced a new event in New Delhi in 2008 without the involvement of the Asian Tour.
