Since committing to play on the Asian Tour in 2009 where he earned his card from Qualifying School, Tetsuji has achieved great success. He won three times in 2010 to finish fifth on the Order of Merit and claimed his fourth title on the Asian Tour in 2011 by winning the Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open on home soil to finish second on the Order of Merit. Also finished top-10 at the Thailand Golf Championship and qualified for the British Open. In 2012, Tetsuji did not reach the heights of previous years when his best result was a tied-20th finish at the Zaykabar Myanmar Open presented by Air Bagan. This was partly due to a back injury which hindered his progress. It was in 2010 that he enjoyed a stunning season by winning three times at the Air Bagan Myanmar Open, Queen’s Cup and season-finale Black Mountain Masters, both in Thailand. He was the only player to win three times during the season and also registered successive back-to-back third place finishes at the Asian Tour International in Thailand and Avantha Masters in India. His win in Yangon was by a massive 10 shots while he held off Thaworn Wiratchant in the Queen’s Cup to win by one stroke. Prevailed over Thai youngster Namchok Tantipokakul in a play-off at the season-ender at Black Mountain. The veteran earned his Asian Tour card through Qualifying School in 2009 and nearly won his maiden title at the season-opening Asian Tour International in Bangkok, only to lose by two strokes to South Africa’s James Kamte. He posted two other top-10s to finish in 54th position on the Order of Merit to secure his 2010 card. He has also won five other tournaments on the Japan Golf Tour.
