Mandela championships to go ahead

The European Tour has announced that next week's Nelson Mandela Championship will go ahead, but will start a day earlier to avoid a clash with Mandela's state funeral.

In recognition of the national period of mourning for the passing of the former South African president, the tournament will start on Wednesday, December 11 and finish on Saturday, December 14.

As with the inaugural event last year, won by Scotland's Scott Jamieson, the tournament will honour Mr Mandela's ongoing charity work through the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.
