Mercedes Benz Masters Indonesia

On 12 October a press conference took place to announce the arrival of the season ending Mercedes Benz Masters Indonesia that will be held at the Emeralda Golf & Country Club between 27 and 30 October.

Sanctioned by the PGPI (Indonesia Professional Golfers Association) the tournament carries a total purse of $80.000 while this year's event marks the third successive season that it takes place at Emeralda.

A total of 10 events were scheduled for 2010. Counted after the penultimate leg, held two weeks ago in Vietnam, only the top-60 from the current Mercedes Benz Tour Order of Merit are eligible to enter the Mercedes Benz Masters Indonesia (MBMI). Current MBMI money leader is Filipino Juvic Pagunsan, but due to commitments to play in the first PGA CIMB Niaga event ever held in Asia, he will be playing in Malaysia.

In total, 12 top amateurs from the ASEAN region are invited to compete, and in doing so they are given a chance to gain valuable experience playing with Tour pros. As the tournament has no cut, all players are guaranteed prize money. A check of US$13.000 awaits the winner at Emeralda.

Uniquely, the top-6 from this Mercedes Benz Tour Order of Merit will earn a place in the field of the US$6 million Barclay's Singapore Open come November.
