European Tour breaks new ground

12:47 pm on 23 October 2012

The expanding European Tour golf championship will enter new territory next year when Bulgaria hosts the World Matchplay Championship.

The event, which has been played at Andalucia in Spain for the last three years, will be held at the Black Sea resort of Thracian Cliffs.

The course designer Gary Player has likened it to California's Pebble Beach.
