This week European Tour Weekly travels to one of the most scenic destinations on the European International Schedule, the majestic Swiss Alps, for the Omega European Masters. ETW will be on the range at Crans-sur-Sierre with all the latest news and views from the players on the eve of the event.

A strong field is assembling in Crans Montana, including the recent winner of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, England’s Tommy Fleetwood.  22 year old Fleetwood was ETW’s One to Watch in his rookie season last year and retained his playing privileges in the final event of the year.  Now the youngest winner of the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2011 looks set to fulfil the promise he showed in an illustrious amateur career. Tommy spoke to ETW about his win.

Our review this week is from Newport where the ISPS Handa Wales Open kicked off the qualifying points race for the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.  We will have the best of the action from The Celtic Manor Resort.

ISPS Chairman and Japanese Philanthropist, Dr Haruhisa Handa has campaigned to make golf accessible to blind and disabled players.  Prior to the ISPS Handa Wales Open ex England Rugby player, Mike Tindall and defending champion, Thongchai Jaidee were on hand when some blind and disabled golfers received some first class tuition at the Twenty Ten course.  ETW brings you a special report.

This week we also have a review from the Travis Perkins plc Seniors Masters at Woburn where Colin Montogmerie will be making his third appearance on The Senior Tour.  

Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour, this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
