Ben Leong is on hot streak. Having won three titles in his last three starts, the Malaysian pro has got the Asian Tour card in his sights when he tees off in the Indonesia Open golf tournament at the Pondok Indah Golf Course in Jakarta on Thursday.
He has won the Orna Closed, IGT Invitational and Tiara Malacca Closed in the last three weeks on the PGM Tour. If he wins the Indonesia Open, then he will secure a two-year exemption to compete in the Asian Tour.
I’ve been playing well. After three good weeks, you don’t usually hear people going for their fourth in a row … but I’m up for it. This is a new week and I want to stay in the present and be patient. If I can block out what happened or what I did previously, I think I’ll have a good week.
“I just want to enjoy Indonesia … the company and just being out here again on the Asian Tour,” said the 30-year-old, who is making his third start on the Asian Tour this year after the Maybank Championship Malaysia and Macau Open.
He missed the cut in the Maybank Championship Malaysia and finished 26th in the Macau Open. Ben’s fine form augurs well for this week’s tournament. The winning score (in the Indonesia Open) will be low. The greens are rolling really good and there are a lot of birdies out there,” said Ben.
The other Malaysians competing in the Indonesia Open are Sukree Othman, Kemarol Baharin, Rizal Amin and Airil Rizman Zahari.
