    Default Players auctioned off for IPL-style league

    1 20 2013 84620 l - Players auctioned off for IPL-style league

    NEW DELHI: A player auction for a new golf tournament inspired by cricket's hugely successful Indian Premier League has seen former US Open winner Michael Campbell attract the highest bid, organisers said Sunday.
    The franchise-based Golf Premier League, to be played at the Aamby Valley golf course near the western city of Pune from February 8 to 10, has a prize pot of $400,000 and a winner's purse of $250,000.
    Eight franchises hired four players each, with Campbell winning the highest bid of $61,000 and two other Major winners, Darren Clarke and Angel Cabrera, both picked up for $55,000.
    Asian tour stars Thaworn Wiratchant and Chapchai Nirat went for $37,000 each at the auction in Mumbai on Saturday night.
    The teams, made up of both foreign and Indian golfers, will play three 14-hole rounds, according to Indian golfer Shiv Kapur, one of the event organisers.
    The Colombo team, the lone foreign franchise, is promoted by Sri Lanka's cricket captain Mahela Jayawardene.
    "It is the slow and steady build-up to the dream that I have had for a franchise-based event in golf, and now we are up and running," Kapur, one of India's top professionals, said in a statement.
    "The launch and the auction have set the stage and now it is for us, the players, to add to the show." (AFP)
