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