MANILA, Philippines — Berry Henson, whose first win on the Asian Tour came in dramatic fashion in the Philippines three years ago, banners a strong foreign contingent seeing action in the $300,000 Solaire Open that tees off next week at The Country Club in Laguna.

The American, who fended off Jay Bayron to win the PH Open at Wack Wack for the biggest win of his career, is looking at his next stint on Philippine soil as a stepping stone to a great year on the Tour so he can take his career to the next level.

“I feel very comfortable out here (in the Philippines) and I feel that I can compete for the Order of Merit crown so I’m looking for a few wins here this year,” Benson said.

The 72-hole event, which was held at Wack Wack East last year, starts March 13.
