European Tour forced to switch venues for The Championship with 3 weeks' notice

The European Tour has been forced to move one of its events from South Korea to Singapore with only three weeks' notice because of "staging issues."

The Championship was due to be staged in Incheon from May 1-4 but the tour says Thursday it will now be held at the Laguna National Golf and Country Club in Singapore.

Tour officials were unable to immediately elaborate on what the staging issues were when contacted by The Associated Press.

Laguna National hosted the Singapore Masters between 2002 and '07 and the Singapore Open from 2009-12.
