Johl looks for a better tomorrow

NEW DELHI, MARCH 22. "The new body will be working in the interest of golfers,'' was the assurance by Amandeep Johl, one of the Directors on the Board of the recently-formed Asian Tour, a players' body that has come forward to run the Asian golf tour.

Speaking to the media persons on the eve of the pro-am event of the Indian Open golf at the Delhi Golf Club here on Monday, Johl maintained that players should be playing and not get into marketing and promotion of events.

Before the start of this season, the Asian PGA had discontinued the services of its marketing firm, the Asian PGA Tour Limted (ATL), since it felt that the ATL was not giving the smaller events their due. Johl said the problems arose because the ATL was effectively controlling the APGA and promoted only big events for huge returns. Johl along with Kyi Hla Han, Mardan Mamat, Rick Gibson and Hendrik Buhrmann are on the Board of the new body.

Johl said there was no issue with some of the events being still handled by the old body. "Their job is essentially to promote these events and we have no problems,'' said Johl. — Our Special Correspondent
