The tournament is played near Moscow. Through 2006, it was held on the same weekend in August as the PGA Championship, which automatically made it a secondary event. In 2007, it will be held the weekend before the PGA Championship, but still remains a secondary event, this time to the Bridgestone Invitational, a World Golf Championships event. The 2005 prize fund of $500,000 was around a tenth of those of the leading events on the European Tour, even leaving aside the major championships and World Golf Championships.
