SKorean golfers call off boycott against OneAsia

South Korean golfers say they have called off a boycott of the OneAsia tour after coming to an agreement with organizers over player quotas at domestic tournaments.

Park Do-kyu, representing the Korean golfers, says OneAsia agreed to allow 60 local golfers to compete in the tour's three South Korean tournaments.

The OneAsia Tour was launched last year as a joint venture between the Australian PGA and governing bodies in Asia, including China and South Korea.

South Korean pros protested the tour's qualification rules. They complained that only half the number of locals would be able to participate this year.


Park said the 13-day boycott caused much damage to the golfers and corporate sponsors.
