Taiwan Open draws best in region; Jay Bayron only Filipino entered

05:00 AM May 22, 2019

Taiwan is fielding in a full-packed roster out to defend its turf against a crack Philippine Golf Tour Asia cast with all but one of the Top 10 in the current money rankings vying in the Daan Taiwan Open teeing off at Ching Chuan Kang Golf Club in Taichung.

Lin Guanbo, the current leader with a win and five top 10 finishes in 10 tournaments in the PGA of Taiwan (TPGA), banners the hosts’ campaign in the $100,000 championship, the first PGT Asia-sanctioned tournament abroad.

Multititled Jay Bayron, a former OOM winner of one of the region’s development tours, is the lone Filipino entry in the full packed 144-player roster that features bets from the United States, Sweden, Australia, Colombia, Scotland, Malaysia, Argentina, South Africa and Korea.

The event is actually the first of two PGT Asia tournaments set in Taiwan.
