Asian Tour Victories
(3) 2003 Sanya Open, China, 2009 Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open, 2014 ICTSI Philippine Open.
In 2014, Marcus made a strong comeback on the Asian Tour when he won the ICTSI Philippine Open as a sponsor’s invitee. Victory was especially sweet for the Australian as he thought of quitting the game after losing his Tour card in 2013 for the first time in 11 seasons and then missing out by one shot at Qualifying School. He ended a six-year title drought when he won the Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open in 2009, claiming a one-shot victory to add to his lone triumph in the 2003 Sanya Open in China. He finished runner-up at the 2001 Australian Amateur Championship and won the Victorian Stroke Average category and amateur medallist in 2001. Was runner-up in the Tasmanian Amateur Open in 2002.
Marcus was a scholarship holder at the Australian Institute of Sports from 1998 to 2002 and said the experience helped in the transition from amateur to pro ranks. Said he enjoyed his first season in Asia not because of the fact that he won on Tour but because he enjoyed the different cultures and different cities across the region. “The experience was tremendous and I thoroughly enjoyed my first year in Asia,” he said.
