On behalf of organisers IMG (Suisse) SA, Yves Mittaz gave a very upbeat review of this year's Omega European Masters. Some 1500 in fields as diverse as catering, security, greenkeeping and judging contributed to the success of the tournament.
The new exhibition area with putting green situated alongside the 17th fairway, as well as the floating 19th green, all came in for praise. Such developments are part of a 3 million Swiss franc package of investment that has been ploughed into the Severiano Ballesteros course over the past few years. Such improvements offer an ever more attractive environment for spectators and are entirely justified given the new attendance records set every year: this year's new record over the four days was 49,900.
