Yeung, 24, is currently fifth on the Order of Merit with RMB 518,125 and is bidding to become the first Hong Kong player to earn a card on the Web.com Tour, ‘The Path to the PGA TOUR’.
“It has been an amazing season for me. Winning the Kunming Championship changed my life because I gained a full card on the Tour, which really boosted my confidence and gave me a chance to move to the next level,” said Yeung, who has three other top-10 finishes this year.
“I’ve played really consistently this season to stay quite high on the Order of Merit, so I want to play well in the final three events and obviously finish really strongly at the Clearwater Bay Open,” Yeung continued. “It will be a special event for me as a Clearwater Bay ambassador and after representing Hong Kong so many times in international events, so I hope myself, Jason and all the other Hong Kong players can do well.”
The top-five on the Order of Merit will automatically earn status on next year’s Web. com Tour, the top-10 will be eligible for the Final Stage of the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament from December 6 -9 and players 11-25 will be exempt to the Second Qualifying Stage.
The PGA TOUR established PGA TOUR Series-China in 2014 as its third international developmental tour, following in the footsteps of PGA TOUR Latinoamerica and the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada. Since its inception, PGA TOUR Series-China players have received Official World Golf Ranking points for top finishes at official tournaments.
