Asian Development Tour

Jump to: navigation, search

The Asian Development Tour, founded in 2010, is a professional golf tour. It is the development tour for the Asian Tour, with a relationship analogous to the Web.com Tour to the PGA Tour and the Challenge Tour to the European Tour. Players who fail to earn Asian Tour cards through qualifying school may play on the tour. The top five players on the Order of Merit (money list) at the end of the year will earn an Asian Tour card for the following season.[1] Beginning in 2013, tournaments carry Official World Golf Ranking points, with six points to the winner and points to the top six plus ties.[2][3] Most of the tournaments are in Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, and Indonesia. Several of the tournaments are co-sanctioned with the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour.[4]

For the 2014 ADT season, the ADT changed its policy to reward Asian Tour cards to the top five players on the ADT Order of Merit, up from three in previous seasons.

Schedule by year[edit]

The table below summarises the development of the tour. For some tournaments, the official purse is in Malaysian ringgits instead of United States dollars. The Order of Merit is calculated in U.S. dollars.
