PUERTO BANUS, Spain (AP) -- Miguel Angel Jimenez says he'll keep contributing money from his own pocket for the Andalucian Open.
Jimenez is the tournament promoter and won 18 times on the European Tour, including four in the Andalucian region. He has reportedly given $560,000 over the past three years to keep the Andalucian Open going.
Jimenez says "it is very important for me that this tournament goes forward, and all I am trying to do is do my best."
This year's tournament will be played at the Aloha course near Marbella on the Costa del Sol. The $1.3 million purse is one of the smallest on the 2012 Race to Dubai schedule.
