Jason Francis announced this yesterday on the World Seniors Tour Forum on Facebook yesterday:
We are today announcing a change in the allocation of the prize fund for 3 World Champ qualifiers in Newbury, Jersey and Coulsdon The Prize fund will now reward any players reaching the Quarter finals, the invitation to the World Seniors Championship remains on offer to the winner of the event. The Prize money for these three events will be…
£500 runner up
£200 semis x 2
£75 quarters x 4
These changes were discussed by tour players on their forum and received unanimous support from those who commented. We will continue to work with our players to improve the tour for all those concerned.
This is indeed good news and further incentive for players to enter and try on the World Seniors Tour.
It’s also great to see that the forum is effectively a place where the players can express their concerns and wishes AND are actually listened to.
