PETALING JAYA: The burgeoning Asian Development Tour (ADT), which is the gateway to the premier Asian Tour, will kick off the new 2014 season with the RM200,000 PGM Sime Darby Harvard golf championship in Alor Setar next week.
The season-opening event will be staged at the Harvard Golf and Country Club from Feb 26-March 1 and will feature an international mix of players from 19 countries.
Past ADT champions Chan Shih-chang of Taiwan, England’s Grant Jackson and Japanese Masaru Takahashi have confirmed their participation.
Danny Chia, the first Malaysian to win an event on the Asian Tour, will spearhead the local challenge alongside Wilson Choo, Kenneth De Silva and Kemarol Baharin.
American James Bowen, however, is not defending his title as he will be playing on the Asian Tour’s SAIL-SBI Open in New Delhi. Bowen secured his Asian Tour card after finishing second on the 2013 ADT Order of Merit.
