ADT:Renolds makes hay while sun shines

  • SHARE
January 20: Canadian Lindsay Renolds is thankful for the gilt-edged opportunity to play on the region’s premier Tour in 2014 after earning his card by finishing fourth on the 2013 Asian Development Tour (ADT) Order of Merit with a season’s haul of US$35,975.
The ADT has been rewarding the top three players on its merit rankings with playing rights on the Asian Tour every year since its inauguration in 2010.
However, it was a special case in 2013 as the Order of Merit champion, Nicholas Fung of Malaysia, managed to secure his card through finishing inside top-60 on the Asian Tour rankings.
Renolds eventually earned his chance as the next three best players were rewarded with playing rights on the Asian Tour in 2014.
Despite not having any wins yet, Renolds was able to cap a relatively good season on the ADT with seven top-10 finieshes on the burgeoning ADT Tour which will welcome a record 16 events in 2014.
The 27-year-old Canadian is now determined to contend for his first win when the ADT  heads into the brand new 2014 season.
“I am glad I managed to obtain my card. The ADT has served as a platform for me to practice my game. I had a great experience playing on the ADT for the last two years and I can’t wait to play on the Asian Tour in 2014!” said the Phuket-based Renolds.
