“The Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club is delighted to host the Clearwater Bay Open for a third time and this year’s event will be the biggest yet, with the record prize money providing a really exciting incentive for all the players as they finish their season,” said David Hui, Chairman of the Tournament Organising Committee.
“There will be many people supporting Clearwater Bay ambassadors Jason Hak and Motin Yeung as they look to finish their season strongly, along with other Hong Kong players who will compete through invitations or qualifying,” Hui continued. “We also welcome back James Marchesani to defend his title after his great win last year. We’ll put on a spectacular event to provide the perfect ending to the Tour as it grows from strength to strength.”
Greg Carlson, Executive Director of PGA TOUR Series-China, added: “The Clearwater Bay Open is a hugely popular event for the players, so it was only fitting that it became the season-ending event for the first time. The increase in prize money to RMB 2 million, a record purse for the PGA TOUR Series-China, increases its importance and profile, so we’re all excited about the third Clearwater Bay Open providing a sensational end to a great season.”
Hong Kong pros Motin Yeung and Jason Hak attended the press conference alongside Australia’s James Marchesani, who will defend the title that earned him a full card on this year’s PGA TOUR Series-China.
