NOTES: The European Tour travels to the Czech Republic this week for the inaugural D+D Real Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort in Prague. Two of the top 34 players in the world are in the field - Jamie Donaldson (29) and Stephen Gallacher (34).

The Welshman Donaldson is currently fifth in the Race to Dubai. He has four top-5 finishes this season, including a tie for second at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. Donaldson has won over 1.5 million euros and has a good chance to make his first Ryder Cup team.

Gallacher, from Scotland, won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in January and has five top-6 finishes this season. He is currently ninth in the Race to Dubai with over 1.2 million euros.

This is the first European Tour event in the Czech Republic since the 2011 Czech Open, won by Oliver Fisher. The Czech Open was staged from 1995-97 and 2009-11.

The European Tour will be in Italy next week for the Italian Open in Torino, where Julien Quesne captured the 2013 title.
