KUALA LUMPUR: The race for the top-five finish on the Asian Development Tour’s (ADT) Order of Merit will continue at the PGM Terengganu Championship next week.
The US$60,000 (RM200,000) tournament, which is the 12th event of the season, will be held at the Resorts World Kijal from Aug 14-17.
American Brett Munson, second in the Order of Merit with RM72,300, fourth-placed Pavit Tangkamolprasert (RM62,100) of Thailand and seventh-placed Englishman Grant Jackson (RM54,260) are among those who have confirmed their participation.
National No. 1 Nicholas Fung will be spearheading the local charge.
The top five players on the money list at the end of the year will earn an Asian Tour card for next season.
Pavit, who claimed his breakthrough victory at the 2013 ADT season-ending Linc Group Jakarta Invitational, will continue his hunt for a second ADT title in Terengganu.
“My main priority for this year is to play well on the ADT and get my Asian Tour card for next year,” said the 25-year-old, who managed four top-five finishes so far this season.
“My first ADT title earlier this year has given me a lot of confidence. I’m going to try my best to maintain my top-five spot in the Order of Merit till the end of the season.”
The winner of the PGM Terengganu Championship will take home US$10,500 (RM33,740) as well as six Official World Golf Ranking points.
