The Asian Tour golf will stage an event for the first time in Scotland and also have events in Vietnam among other countries.

The inaugural St Andrews Bay Championship will tee off at Fairmont St Andrews on August 24-27, organizers said on Tuesday. It will have a minimum prize purse of $1.5 million and be the sixth stop on the tour's LIV Golf-supported International Series in 2023.

The International Series is in its second season and also has events this year in Oman, Qatar, Thailand, Vietnam and England.

"We are an ambitious initiative that aims to travel and go beyond our traditional borders to help grow the game and there can be no better place to play one of our events than where the game originated," Rahul Singh, head of The International Series, said.

The International Series offers a pathway to the upstart LIV Golf League.

The Saudi-backed LIV, which is challenging the established PGA and DP World Tours, is pumping an estimated $300-400 million into the Asian Tour.
