Singapore : The stand-off by the South Korean golfers towards the OneAsia golf Tour thawed with the golfers calling off their boycott of OneAsia tournaments Friday.
Korean players have been assured more entries in forthcoming events, according to the Korean PGA.
With the boycott having been called off, it was a big relief for OneAsia, which is made up of Australian, Chinese and Korean golf bodies. This was also good news ahead of the first event in South Korea this year, the Maekyung Open next week.
The players were upset that they were being given fewer places for locals in the three former Korean Tour events.
The latest assurance of a minimum of 60 South Korean golfers at each of these events and that no more Korea Tour events would be added to the OneAsia Tour resulted in the end to the boycott threat.
The Maekyung Open will have a total of 74 South Korean golfers including invited players.
