BENTLEY IN CONTENTION AT IMPERIAL LAKEVIEW GOLF CLUB

At the other first stage qualifying site at Imperial Lakeview Golf Club, Zimbabwean golfer Greg Bentley remained in contention after shooting an under-par 71 in the third round.

Bentley, who last month secured his playing rights on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, is tied for position 13 on three-under par 210 for the week.

A total of 491 hopefuls are taking part in the first stage which started last Wednesday across four different courses in the Thai capital, Bangkok.

After today’s final round, the top 19 and ties at the four sites will join the 155 players who are already exempted for next week’s final stage of the Asian Tour Qualifying School next week.

The final stage will be held at the Imperial Lakeview and Springfield Royal from January 13 to 16 where the top-40 and ties after four rounds will earn their Tour cards for the 2016 season.

The Asian Tour recently released the first half of its 2016 schedule, which consists of nine exciting tournaments to be held in Singapore, Malaysia, India, Australia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Thailand, along with the Asian Development Tour’s provisional schedule of 22 events.

Over the years, the Asian Tour Qualifying School has proven to be the springboard for success for many of the region’s big names such as Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee, a three-time Order of Merit champion, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Asia’s number one in 2013, and reigning Asian Tour Order of Merit champion Anirban Lahiri of India.
