Christy O'Connor Jnr has withdrawn from this week's British Masters at the Forest of Arden following the death of his son, Darren, in a car crash in Kilcolgan, near Galway, late on Monday.

Next year's European Grand Prix at Slaley Hall, Northumberland, will have a new date to ensure it does not clash with the US Open as in recent seasons. The 1999 tournament will run from 24 to 27 June.
