Ma­cau, Zhuhai and HK to Host Fi­nal Three Events of PGA TOUR Series-China Sea­son

HK Golfer - - DIVOTS -

PGA TOUR Series-China’s fourth sea­son will con­clude with a flour­ish in Oc­to­ber, as the Series an­nounced its fi­nal three tour­na­ments of 2018 will take place in cities along the Pearl River Delta that are set to be linked by a ma­jor bridge and tun­nel sys­tem.

Ma­cau, Zhuhai and Hong Kong will host the Series’ con­clud­ing events, tour­na­ments that will help de­ter­mine the top-five fin­ish­ers on the Or­der of Merit, those who will earn sta­tus for the 2019 Tour, the path to the PGA TOUR.

Cae­sars Golf Ma­cau will kick off the three-week swing when it stages the Ma­cau Cham­pi­onship from Septem­ber 27-30 in the Tour’s first visit to “Las Ve­gas of the East.” Ma­cau will join Hong Kong as the two cities out­side Main­land China to host a Tour event.

The Ori­ent Golf Club will again be the site of a Tour event when it stages the Zhuhai Cham­pi­onship (Oc­to­ber 4-7) be­fore The Clearwater Bay Golf and Coun­try Club in Hong Kong hosts the Clearwater Bay Open for a third con­sec­u­tive year (Oc­to­ber 11-14) in the sea­son-end­ing showdown at the sea­side course.

The tim­ing of this fin­ish will be per­fect as the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Ma­cau Bridge is likely to open around this time and will of­fer an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to pay homage to what will be­come the world’s largest sea-cross­ing—span­ning roughly 55 kilo­me­ters (34 miles) to con­nect the three ma­jor cities. The brid­getun­nel sys­tem con­sists of one un­der­sea tun­nel and three ca­ble-stayed bridges.

The PGA TOUR es­tab­lished PGA TOUR Series-China in 2014 as its third in­ter­na­tional 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.
