PETALING JAYA: Asian Develop­ment Tour (ADT) aspirants will return to chase for top honours in the PGM Panasonic Malaysia Championship at the Kelab Rahman Putra in Sungai Buloh today.

A total of 24 ADT champions – including Australian Martin Dive, American John Catlin, Thailand’s Panuwat Muenlek and Indonesian George Gandranata – will feature in the RM250,000 tournament, the second stop on the Tour this season.

Other notable players include Scott Barr of Australia, Taiwanese Hsieh Chi-hsien, Singaporean Quincy Quek, Liu Yan-wei of China and 18-year-old Suradit Yongcha­roenchai of Thailand.

Arie Irawan, a two-time winner on the second-tier Tour, will spearhead the 57-man Malaysian charge for the US$9,500 (RM42,750) top prize.

There is an additional bonus for the local players as the leading Malaysian finisher will be invited to compete in the lucrative Panasonic Open Japan, which is co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour, from April 20-23.
