Tour thanks O'Grady

  • SHARE
The Asian Tour would like to thank George O’Grady for his exceptional leadership with the European Tour over the last 40 years.
O’Grady has been instrumental in strengthening the close relationship between the Asian Tour and European Tour which dates back to 1999, where the Maybank Malaysian Open was the first co-sanctioned tournament between the Tours.
Since then, the Asian Tour and European Tour have developed a strong partnership and have enjoyed significant growth, in promoting and developing the game of golf together.
The inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM held in Malaysia in March this year was a rousing success and O’Grady’s pivotal role towards golf’s return to the Olympics in 2016 are fine examples of O’Grady’s leadership and collaborative approach towards growing golf globally.
We are confident that this partnership, initiated during his tenure, will continue through a smooth transition period at the European Tour and we are delighted that O’Grady will continue his involvement in our sport as President of International Relations of the European Tour and we look forward to continuing to work with him.
