European Challenge Tour announces
 season-ending Final Swing


 +Fields will be taken from the Challenge Tour Rankings and federation invites rather than the usual exemption categories
 +Begins with the inaugural Shankai Classic to be played at Chongqing Poly Golf Club
 +Increased Official World Golf Ranking points available for final three events – The Foshan Open, National Bank of Oman Golf Classic and the Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club

The top 45 on the Rankings will qualify for the Grand Final, with those in the top 15 on the season-long list at the end of the event set to earn their European Tour card for 2015
This year’s European Challenge Tour season will climax with a series of events known as the Final Swing, taking in four tournaments across China, Oman and Dubai, the closing three of which will receive more Official World Golf Ranking points to reflect their increased significance on the golfing calendar.
At the climax to a season which will have featured 27 tournaments played across 21 countries, this latest initiative acts as proof to the global reach of European golf’s second tier, with these four big money events set to play a crucial role in determining the top 15 in the Rankings, who will graduate to The European Tour in 2015.
The excitement will get under way at the inaugural Shankai Classic from Oct 16-19, before the second leg of a Chinese fortnight is completed with the return of The Foshan Open the following week.
