Mike Sinkinson (Australia) - CEO Thai Bauer with Thingon Jansomboon (Thailand)

Congratulations Thingon Jansomboon (Thailand) Champion at the 7th Thai Bauer ASM @ Thailand 2017
Thingon emerged as the Champion after a most tense and exciting 3 man 4 hole play off involving fellow countryman Manes Saengsui (Thailand) and Glenn Joyner (Australia) will go on to represent Thailand and the AST in the USA playing on the Champions Tour at the US$ 2 million dollar purse 2017 Insperity Invitational presented by UnitedHealthcare at The Woodland CC from Mon 1 to Sun 7 May 2017


Congratulations Gunasagaran (Malaysia) who made golfing history as the 1st Malaysian professional golfer to ever play in the USA when he represented the Asian Seniors Tour against most of the world's leading senior professional golfers at the US$ 2.1 million purse Insperity Invitational presented by United Healthcare staged at the Woodlands CC in Houston, Texas from 2 to 8 May 2016, where Guna returned a most respectable 3 day 54 hole total score of 222 at 6 over, to come in tied for 48th place.

In previous years the AST was represented by;
2014 - Ahmad Bateman (Brunei) who returned 222 at 6 over par to place tied 48
2015 - Murugiah (Singapore) who returned 234 at 18 over par to place tied 72
2016 - Gunasagaran (Malaysia) who returned 222 at 6 over par to place tied 48
2017 - Thingon Jansomboon (Thailand) who returned 227 at 11 over par to place tied 70

Since 2014 the Asian Senior Tour's leading senior professional golfer has been invited to take part in the annual US$ 2 million + purse Insperity Invitational presented by UnitedHealthcare staged at
The Woodlands Country Club in Houston, representng the AST, playing in a US Champions Tour event.

In 2016 the AST established a SUPER SENIORS division catering for our older members as well as golfers from both professional and amateur ranks who have attained 60 years of age and in 2017 will add a VETERANS division for golfers who have attained the age of 70

In 2017 the AST's leading senior professional will again contest the Insperity Invitational from 1 to 7 May, and we also anticipate confirmation of an annual invitation being generously extended to the AST by the Senior PGA Tour of Japan as well as regular invitations for members of the AST to play in various senior tournaments staged by the Thai Seniors PGA and the Taiwan Seniors PGA Tour.

The AST will continue with its efforts to secure additional playing opportunities for its members at other Senior Tournaments, both in the Asia Pacific region and further afield internationally.

In 2018 the AST will be allocated a 2nd invitation to play in a new event on the Champions Tour, The Mile High Fairway Classic @ Colorado National GC to be staged in June 2018.

AST Qualifying Schools are conducted in in Malaysia several times a year and also in other countries, prior to the AST's Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Seasons. AST Qualifying School is also conducted as PRO Qualifier events staged during all ASM tournaments.

Present and past members of any recognised PGA or Tour are NOT required to under go the AST's qualifying school and are automatically eligible to join the AST provided they are at least 50 years old

AST membership joining and annual fees 2017

It will cost a Senior Professional who is NOT a member of the AST between US$ 250 and US$ 350 extra to play in an ASM event depending upon the prize money on offer, so it does make sense to join..

The AST wish to thank and acknowledge our long standing main tour sponsors, Thai Bauer - Giant - Integra - Nomad Aviation - CIES - Stapleford Park - Nimoi Holdings - Tarpon and the Oxley Capital Group along with our numerous supporting sponsors, host venues and official hotels who make it possible for the AST to stage our annual season of ASM tournaments and for our champions to compete in the USA.

Your long standing friendship and support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you and to entertaining your guests at our forthcoming events during the AST's 2017 season.







Asian Seniors Tour 2017 Season presented by Integra

Despite a Non-Member possibly qualifying for Country Exemption Status at an ASM event, please note that it can / will cost a non-member between US$ 250 and US$ 350 extra to register and play in the event depending upon the prize money - playing opportunity on offer, so it does make sense to join the AST....

Ramayah Malaysia’s leading senior professional golfer and Vice Chairman of the Asian Seniors PGA Tour has once again proven to all the Asian Seniors Tour participants from around the world that he is currently in a class of his own. His experience and steady nerves displayed during the 1 hole sudden death play off on the 18th against Nopajak Mesom (Thailand) ensured his victory at the ASM @ Singapore 2009 (Pulai Springs Resort) presented by Oxley Capital Group.

Ramayah lead the 3 day ASM @ Singapore (Pulai Springs Resort) from the start carding an impressive 69 for the first day and then carding steady 72, 72 over the next 2 days to finish 3 under.

New comer Nopajak Mesom started with a shaky 74 then went on to recover shooting 69 on the second day to keep him on the leader board, and followed with a steady 72 to also finish 3 under forcing the play off.

During the play off both their accurate T shots down the picturesque dog leg 18th hole with a large hazard running all down the left side, landed within 20 feet of each other, well clear off the bunkers, and hazard on the right, leaving both with what should have been quite comfortable second shots to the highly elevated green, with Ramayah to play first.

Rather than risk the bunkers and attack the well protected pin, Ramayah played long right and safe, leaving himself a slightly downward lying chip to get on to the green. Nopajak Mesom was less cautious and boldly went for the pin, but alas caught one of the bunkers leaving himself 15 feet from the pin but with about a 15 foot incline and bunker face in the way!

Ramayah chipped to within 12 feet of the pin, and having gathered himself Nopajak Mesom played a great bunker shot to land inside of Ramayah leaving himself a chance to stay in the game, however Ramayah’s steady nerves and accuracy ensured his Par, and unfortunately for Nopajak Mesom his missed putt cost him the Championship.

This latest victory makes it Ramayah’s second ASM Championship title for the year having also recently won his first Championship title earlier this year at the annual ASM @ Malaysia presented by Oxley Capital Group staged at the Tasik Puteri GCC in July 2009, and as was the case during the ASM @ Malaysia in July similarly the field contesting the inaugural ASM @ Singapore (Pulai Springs Resort) could not hold up against Ramayah who lead from start to finish.

Ramayah’s latest Victory puts him on par with Stewart Ginn (Australia) who up till now has reigned supreme on the AST’s Order of Merit having won the ASM @ Malaysia in 2005 and 2006. For Ramayah after having placed second on more than 3 occasions and always featuring in the top 10 for the past 6 editions of the annual ASM @ Malaysia, in 2009 undisputed Victory is his!

The 2008 ASM @ Malaysia was staged from 17th - 19th October 2008 at Tasik Puteri GCC.



It all came down to the 18th when unfortunately Ramayah's approach shot went wide, ending his chances of forcing Sutep into a sudden death play off.

For Ramayah this was such an unfortunate outcome, and echo's the final day of the 2007 ASM @ Malaysian, when Chen Tsang Te from Taiwan managed a final round 68, including a birdie on the 18th, to beat Ramayah, who also birdied the last hole. Chen returned a tour record winning score of 10 under par 206, beating M Ramayah by a single stroke.

Ramayah a regular on the Asian Seniors Tour since its foundation in 2003 and has consistently placed high up on the ASM leader boards, we wish him better luck next year and hope that he might emerge as the first Malaysian to win an Asian Seniors Tour event. Here's to his success at the 2009 ASM @ Malaysia.

Taiwan’s Chung Chun Hsing wins the AIA Singapore ASM 2007
staged at Jurong Country Club from 10 - 16 September 2007

Chung Chun Hsing won his second Asian Seniors Tour victory after shooting a steady final round 72 to finish with an impressive 8-under par total of 208 at the AIA Singapore Asian Senior Masters 2007 staged at JCC for the 3rd time since the inaugural 2003 ASM @ Singapore

AIA Singapore ASM 2007 Champion's trophy to Chung Chun Hsing

Chung's AIA Singapore ASM 2007 victory makes it two in a row adding to his maiden AST victory at the inaugural 2006 ASM @ Phuket - Thailand and together with fellow country man Chen Tsang Te’s victory the week before at the 2007 ASM @ Malaysia made it a clean sweep for Taiwan

Tied in second place on 4-under par were American, Peter Teravainen, Eduardo Bagtas from the Philippines, Craig Owen from New Zealand and Phachoen Prempleeda from Thailand.

Singapore also featured in the top ten with local favourite Poh Eng Chong returning a great last round 3-under par 69 to finish on a 3-under total of 213 which was matched by Australia's David Saunders, after he shot the low round of the day, a 6-under par 66.

Saunders also challenged in last week's 2007 ASM @ Malaysia event and it will only be a matter of time before he breaks through for his first major Asian Seniors Tour victory.

Singapore based Terevainen, playing in his first Asian Seniors Tour event, had plenty of opportunities to challenge the overnight leader Chung.

In the end Chung only needed to shoot a last round event par 72 to hold off Teravainen and the other determined challengers to record his second victory on the Asian Seniors Tour.

The legendary Hsieh Min Nan once again showed the young seniors a thing or two by returning an even par 216 on a course that some of the new seniors found, at the very least, challenging.

Just one shot back in third place was Russell Lim with a 1-over par 73, and a star of the future, 11 year old Jennifer Yan, who shot consecutive rounds of 76.

Main sponsors, AIA Singapore, announced that they were well pleased with the success of the tournament and plan to continue to ensure that the AIA Singapore ASM 2008 event will involve even more of Singapore's leading amateur and junior golfers.

The ASM tournament format allows leading juniors and amateurs golfers of all ages and gender the opportunity to play alongside the Legends of Golf under testing tournament conditions, thus resulting in quality golf and future champions taking home the overall amateur title.

The 2008 AIA Singapore ASM will also for the first time feature an AIA Singapore 8 ball pool tournament featuring an as yet to be decided cash prize to the top 3 participants, open to ONLY the amateur and professional golfers contesting next years 2008 AIA Singapore ASM event.

There is expected to be a modest SG$ 10 entry fee with all proceeds being donated to the SGA and SLGA Junior Golf development fund.

Stewart Ginn Retains ASM Malaysia title in Sudden Death Playoff against Thailand's Amphon Maneerat.
The 2006 ASM Malaysia was staged from 17 - 19 November 2006 at the Palm Garden Golf Club.



Australia's Stewart Ginn - (right) receiving his trophy from Malaysia's Sports Commissioner - Tan Sri Elyas Omar - (center) with the 2006 ASM @ Malaysia amateur Chapion Ilya Jamal - (left)

Stewart the defending ASM @ Malaysia Champion retained his title at the 2006 ASM Malaysia with a playoff victory over last weeks' ASM @ Singapore Champion Amphon Maneerat.



At one stage Thailand's Amphon Maneerat reached seven under par, however, consistent play by Stewart Ginn, (despite a one hour rain delay) who held his nerve to overtake Amphon, who had a double bogey at the par three 17th hole. Both players returned a three day five under par score of 211

Ginn, a former Champions Tour Major winner who ran fifth on this year’s European Seniors Tour won the 2005 ASM Malaysia on his Asian Seniors Tour debut at Palm Resort Golf & Country Club. With back-to-back victories, Ginn will no doubt be hoping to make this a three in row success at the 2007 ASM Malaysia.

In third place was Chang Chin Kuo from Chinese Taipei on 213 followed in fourth place by Eduardo Bagtas Jr from the Philippines. Malaysia’s Nazamuddin Yusof on 215 was tied for fifth with Sutep Boonpimuk from Thailand and Trevor Fisher from South Africa who was playing in the final group.

Rounding out the top ten, on two over par 218, were Juanito Pagurusan from the Philippines and Asian Seniors Tour regulars, Masahiro Tokunaga from Japan and Australia’s Trevor Downing.

Ginn was happy with the course conditions and grateful that seniors tournaments are now being held on a regular basis in Asia as he has now been based in Malaysia for many years.

Leading Malaysian amateur, 15 year old Ilyia Jamil, won the 2006 ASM Malaysia Amateur Championship by one shot over 2005 ASM Malaysia Amateur Champion, Feldman Tan from Singapore after returning a fine score of 74.

Ilyia will be invited to defend his title at the 2007 ASM Malaysia and be invited to play in the 2007 ASM Singapore. Unfortunately, the 2003 ASM Singapore Amateur Champion and the Singapore Amateur Open Champion of 2005 retired after only eight holes.

The Ladies Championship was won by Ms June Yap from Malaysia who returned sensational back-to-back scores of 77 and 76 whilst playing with the men. The occasion was graced by Tan Sri Elyas Omar, the Sports Commissioner of Malaysia who gave away the prizes to the champions.

Stewart Ginn won the 2005 Asian Senior Masters tournament at Palm Resort Golf and Country Club today without ever having lost the lead. Ginn completed the tournament with a two-over par final round of 74 for a 54-hole total of 219.

As predicted, his nearest challenger, Randall Vines managed to creep up the leader board to tie Ginn, at three-over par, when Ginn dropped a shot at the par-4 13th hole. Although Randall Vines eventually went on to complete his round with a one-over par 73, one better than Ginn’s final round of 74, his final-day performance was not quite enough, as he finished two shots behind Ginn’s final three-round total of 219.

Third place was shared by two players, following a tie between John Williamson (New Zealand), with a final round of 76 for a 224 total, and Brian Jones (Australia), who made a late rush with a final round one-under par score of 71, also for a total of 224. Cheng Tsang Te (Taiwan) finished in fifth place with a three-round total of 225, followed in sixth place by Richard Ellis (New Zealand), who equaled the best score of the day (71) to finish with a 226 total. Others tied at 226 were former Malaysian Seniors Open Champion, John Clifford (Australia), along with Reynaldo Alit (Philippines) and Taiwanese legend, Hsieh Min-Nan

In his first appearance on the Asian Seniors Tour, Malaysia’s rising seniors star, M. Ramayah, finished with an impressive tenth position, with a 54-hole total of 227.

The clash of the rising stars of the future saw no let up, as Feldman Tan from SICC proved that his performance throughout the week was no 'flash in the pan', completing an arduous week with another impressive amateur performance of a 77 on an extremely testing 7,065 yard course, to take the ASM Amateur Championship title by one shot from Ng Yau Loong from Royal Johor GC. Paul Lim from Palm Resort GCC took third place with an 81, followed by the very impressive 14-year old, Lion Goh from Laguna National GCC, who carded an 82.

Tan Sri Elyas Omar, the Malaysian Commissioner of Sports closed the day by thanking all concerned and pledging the full support of the Ministry of Sports for the proposed 2006 Asian Seniors Tour event in Malaysia.
