SINGAPORE -- Golf's European Tour has stumped up $100,000 to boost the prize pot for next month's inaugural Aamby Valley Masters in India.

The cash for the Mumbai event, the 13th leg of the Asian Tour, is being handed over as a thank-you to organizers for switching dates to accommodate the co-sanctioned Indonesia Open.

The tournament, to be played at Aamby Valley Sahara Lake City from May 11-14, now boasts a purse of $400,000.

It had originally been scheduled for February but was moved to allow the Indonesia Open to be played.

Asian Tour chief Louis Martin said the European contribution had been made "in the spirit of our close working relationship" and that the European Tour had deemed it appropriate.
