Keith Pelley, CEO of the European Tour, has apologised for the functionality of the organisation’s new website, which has now reverted back to its old style.
Pelley wrote an Open letter to fans, explaining the European Tour struggled with technical issues during the re-launch.
"To all fans of the European Tour,
You will notice this evening that we have reverted back to the old style and design of our website and app.
I have been disappointed with the functionality of our new platforms since they were relaunched and I completely understand the frustration many of you have shared with us.
I was hopeful the technical issues we faced were behind us, but having monitored our website and app closely they are clearly not, which is why we have taken action.
You, the fans, are vitally important to the European Tour and our players. I want to make your experience – whether in person at our tournaments or on-line – the best it can possibly be.
We have listened to your feedback and we appreciate all of you who took the time to contact us. We took that very much into consideration when taking this step.
You should know we will continue to work behind the scenes, reviewing the future direction of our website and app, but nothing will be done until we are 100% confident, both from a technical and a design perspective.
I apologise for the disruption this has caused to your enjoyment of the European Tour through our digital platforms and rest assured we will do things differently in the next phase of our development.
Thank you for your patience and continued support.
So good to have the "old but new" @EuropeanTour website back!!!— Edoardo Molinari (@DodoMolinari) August 21, 2017
It's great to see @EuropeanTour website back to how it was— Denis Pugh (@Dpugh54) August 22, 2017
Hopefully no changes planned in near, or far, future. It works so don't fix it
Right decision in my opinion to go back to the old @EuropeanTour website & app, whilst issues are sorted. Good letter explaining it from KP.— Pete Batty (@battsgolf) August 22, 2017
