PETALING JAYA: Malaysia will host the highest number of Asian Development Tour (ADT) events next year and the fledgling Tour is also expected to break new grounds in Sri Lanka.
Malaysia will host a total of 12 events, thanks to the strong partnership with the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour. This is two more than the 10 held in Malaysia this year.
The ADT is set to stage a minimum 17 events next year.
The Tour will kick off with the PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship at the Harvard Golf and Country Club in Sungai Petani from Feb 25-March 1.
This year, local golfers Nicholas Fung, Iain Steel and Danny Chia bagged a total of four ADT titles between them.
Nicholas was the most successful when he won the PGM-UMW Templer Park Masters in June and enjoyed three second placings to finish at the top of the ADT Order of Merit.
