PETALING JAYA: The top three players on the Asian Development Tour (ADT) Order of Merit, led by James Bowen of the United States, will compete in the PGM LADA Langkawi Masters starting tomorrow.
Englishman Grant Jackson, who won his first ADT title last week, and Scotland’s James Byrne, winner of the ADT’s season-opening PGM CCM Rahman Putra Masters, will also challenge for honours at the RM200,000 tournament.
Singaporean Quincy Quek, Taiwan’s Chiang Chen-chih and Canada’s Lindsay Renolds will also feature in the event at the Gunung Raya Golf Resort in Langkawi.
Byrne, third on the Order of Merit, will make a return to the burgeoning Tour for the first time since winning his first ADT title in February.
He is determined to cement his position on the Merit list as the top three players at the end of the season and earn playing rights for the 2014 Asian Tour season.
The former Walker Cup star is playing in his second year in Asia and was delighted to earn six Official World Golf Ranking points for winning on the ADT earlier this year.
“That’s a great thing (Official World Golf Ranking status for the ADT) for Asian golf. To get that status shows that the ADT is a proper development Tour,” said the 24-year-old.
England’s Jackson, meanwhile, is hoping to win back-to-back titles after clinching his first ADT title at the PGM Johor Masters last week.
“Winning means everything to me. It’s the only reason why I’m playing on the ADT as I want to try to finish in the top-three (on the Order of Merit) to get the Asian Tour card,” said Jackson, who credited the victory in Johor to a change of putter.
