Bowen aims to shine on the Asian Tour

  • SHARE
January 16:  Asian Development Tour (ADT) graduate James Bowen will be looking to stamp his mark on the Asian Tour when he takes on the region’s top players in the new 2014 season.
The 27-year-old American, who capped two victories and four top-10 finishes, compiled a season’s haul of US$39,824 to finish second on the just concluded 2013 ADT Order of Merit.
Bowen had missed out on the opportunity to earn his Asian Tour card at the Qualifying School at the beginning of 2013 but was determined to prove his worth. The best way to do it, he thought, would be to excel on the ADT which he did so in style.
“Coming from the States, I heard a lot of good things about the Asian Tour and that's why I decided to brave the long journey to come out here and compete," said Bowen.
“The ADT has been a great stepping stone for me. I gained world ranking points and it helped put me on the world map as well,” added Bowen, who is brimming with excitement heading into the new season on the Asian Tour.
The 2013 season on the ADT has been especially sweet for the American as he claimed his maiden victory, since turning professional in 2008, at the PGM Sime Darby Harvard Masters in Malaysia last February before claiming his second win at the inaugural Jakarta Classic.
“I am really looking forward to playing on the Asian Tour. Playing on the ADT definitely helped a lot in my game.Winning two professional titles in a year is a great accomplishment for me. It really means a great deal to me. I feel like my hard work is finally paying off,” said Bowen.
