Held at a luxurious course by the windy east coast of Malaysia, the ADT PGM Tournament has drawn talented golfers from all corners of the world, even from as far as USA, UK, Australia and the neighboring Thailand, Philippines etc.
The PGM tour is the fastest growing professional tour carrying a prize money of over US$ 3 million with connected major tournaments like the Malaysian Open, Selangor Masters, Johor Open and the Malaysian PGA tournaments offering over US$ 15 million annually.
ADT is the feeder tour for the Asian tour carrying over US$ 50 million annually. Together these tours have now matured to draw players from USA, Australia, UK and more.
Asian golf is showing unprecedented growth not just in popularity but in prize money as well. Apart from the massive purses of the Korean Tour and Japanese Tours, the burgeoning Chinese tour alone offers over US$ 50 million. In total Asia will soon account for more prize money than the rest of the world put together. Sri Lanka, despite being the second oldest golfing nation in Asia is sadly not in the radar of the professional golf map. Sri Lankans have immense talent and with a little assistance from state and private sector enterprises, they too can reach the pinnacle of this beautiful game, similar to the meteoric rise Sri Lankan cricketers have achieved on the cricket grounds. The whole nation will reap numerous benefits from a chain reaction of events that will take place by professional golf taking some from of rooting in Sri Lanka. The Defense Secretary is learning the game. Hoping he will do the needful to stimulate its growth, as he has done in his other endeavors in Sri Lanka which has rekindled a sense of patriotic pride among the hearts of every Sri Lankan.
