Jay Bayron guns for a record-equaling number of victories on the Asian Development Tour (ADT) as he joins the title hunt in the $100,000 Aboitiz Invitational which gets going on Wednesday at Riviera’s Couples Course in Silang, Cavite.
Bayron has racked up three titles on the farm circuit of the Asian Tour with another victory this week matching the record held by current ADT No. 1 Chan Shih-chang of Taiwan.
“I always try my best to win in any tournament I play in. I hope I’ll have a good week and be able to give myself a chance at winning the title again,” said Bayron, also out to snap a five-month title spell after winning the kickoff leg of this year’s ICTSI Philippine Golf Tour at Splendido last March.
“It’s been a long while and I hope I can put it all together this week to gain another crack at the crown,” added Bayron, also the PGT OOM winner in 2010.
But the ace Filipino shotmaker will face strong challenges from the talent-laden international field, which includes the country’s aces and a slew of veteran ADT campaigners, led by American Brett Munson, Thais Wisut Artjanawat, Sattaya Supupramai, Japanese Mitsuhiko Hashizume, Englishman Grant Jackson and Ireland’s Niall Turner along with Canadian Lindsay Renolds, Aussie Darren Tan and Swede Malcolm Kokocinksi.
