Ialways get excited in the final months of each year. Why? Because December is the month of the Indonesian Masters, our most prestigious professional tournament. We must admit that the Indonesian Masters is our national pride. The tournament introduces Indonesia to a global audience through golf.
Behind every Indonesian Masters, there is always a story. This year, the US$750,000 event takes place in mid-December and seeks to focus further on encouraging Asian players, including our national players, to reach their peak performance level. Indonesian golf fans always hope that our home players can perform surprisingly at this tournament. That hope has grown stronger now that we have an Asian Tour champion, Rory Hie.
This is certain to inspire and encourage other Indonesian players to be able to match Rory's achievements. The Indonesian Masters would be the ideal moment to fulfill these dreams! Another interesting story we’ve covered in this edition is Indonesia's success at regaining the team championship trophy between Indonesia and Malaysia.
In the IGTPGM Championship, the Indonesian Golf Tour team was able to bury the hopes of the Malaysian team who were attempting to defend the title. The full cover-story can be read in this edition, along with plenty of other informative articles. So, please enjoy our magazine and have a happy Christmas and New Year. We wish for great things to come your way next year!
