1st MASTERS 2015 QUALIFIER POSTPONED

Due to the re-scheduling of the Masters 2014 ,the MCF has deemed it not fair to the players who did  not qualify outright to the Masters 2015 that the 1st Masters 2015 qualifier be held only 2 weeks after the Masters 2014 has ended. So the second qualifier will be held as scheduled in september and the forthcoming qualifier will be scheduled early 2015.
