Singapore: Jerome Ng and Gregory Foo will spearhead a six-strong Singaporean contingent at the 2015 Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship [AAC].
The seventh edition of the event will take place at Hong Kong’s Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club from October 1-4 with the champion receiving an invitation to the Masters Tournament and, along with the runner-up, gaining entry to The Open Qualifying Series for The Open.
Ng had the distinction of posting a top-10 finish at Royal Melbourne Golf Club last year while Foo is the reigning Singapore Open amateur champion.
Foo is also the leading Singapore player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking in 244th place.
Joining Foo and Ng in Hong Kong will be Joshua Ho, Abdul Hadi, Joshua Shou and James Leow Kwang Aik.
Organised by the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation in conjunction with the Masters Tournament and The R&A, the AAC is played annually at a different venue throughout Asia-Pacific.
Since its inauguration in 2009, the AAC has produced an impressive list of winners, including two-time champion Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, who has recorded top-20 finishes across all four Majors since turning professional in 2013, and 2012 AAC champion Guan Tianlang, who made headlines in 2013 when he became the youngest player ever to make the cut at the Masters Tournament.
Continuing under its banner of ‘Creating Future Heroes’, the AAC will feature 120 players from the APGC’s 39 member associations and will be played over 72 holes of stroke play, with a cut for the leading 60 players plus ties after 36 holes.
The event is taking place in Hong Kong this year for the first time.
