Westwood To Defend Indonesia Title

World number two Lee Westwood has confirmed he will return to defend his title at the Indonesian Masters held at Royale Jakarta Golf Club next April.

The Englishman claimed a memorable victory in the inaugural edition on the Asian Tour earlier this year which coincided with his 38th birthday and a return to the world's number one position, albeit briefly.

His early confirmation is a huge boost for the Indonesian Masters which is growing immensely following its launch this year. The second edition of the tournament will be held from April 19 to 22, 2012.

"I am delighted to confirm that I will be back to Royale Jakarta to defend my Indonesian Masters presented by PNTS title," said Westwood, who holds 34 international victories in his illustrious career.

"I enjoyed my time in Indonesia earlier this year as it is an amazing place and I managed to play some very good golf to beat a strong Asian Tour field. It will be fun to defend my title as I always enjoy competing in Asia where I have been very successful."

Westwood carded brilliant rounds of 68, 66, 66 and 69 for a 19-under-par 269 winning total at Royale Jakarta to beat Thai star Thongchai Jaidee by three shots. The final round was graced by the presence of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Wisut Cruises To Palembang Win

Palembang, Indonesia, October 16: Thailand’s Wisut Artjanawat handled the pressure of leading going into the final round of the US$75,000 Palembang Musi Championship today with consummate ease by strolling to a five stroke victory.

Ahead by one at the start of the day he proved to be uncatchable as he fired a bogey free six-under-par 66 at Palembang Golf Club.

He finished with an impressive four-round aggregate of 17-under-par 271.

Malaysia’s Nicholas Fung took second place after shooting a 69 while a stroke further back were Jay Bayron from the Philippines and Thailand’s Supravee Phatam.

Bayron stormed through with a 64 while Supravee returned 67.

It is Wisut’s third victory on the ASEAN PGA Tour and the US$12,111 winners’ cheque moved him up to third on the Order of Merit from 43rd. The huge leap also puts him into prime position to qualify for the US$6 million Barclays Singapore Open as the top seven from the Merit list as of November 6 make it through.

“I felt relaxed and just focused on what I had to do and nothing else. This win puts me on track to be able to work towards playing like this in the big events in the region. I am really happy,” said Wisut.

He made six birdies including on 17 and 18. The only real concern during his round came on the par-four 17th where after a stray tee shot he had to chip sideways into the fairway. Remarkably he then holed his third shot from the fairway to put one hand firmly on the trophy.

“I didn’t panic on 17. I deliberately chipped out so that I only had 50 yards left which is a distance I am very comfortable with. Holing it was a bit of luck though,” added the 29 year old from Bangkok.

On the par-four 18th he finished off in style after nailing his second shot to four feet.

Wisut is a proven winner having won the Thailand PGA Championship last year and in 2008 he won the Mercedes-Benz Masters Vietnam and the Mercedes-Benz Masters Philippines on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

He turned professional in 2006 after enjoying a distinguished amateur career which saw him claim the individual and team titles in the 2005 Putra Cup.

Playing partner Fung tried valiantly to catch Wisut and was two shots behind at the turn.

However it was not to be and a bogey on the final hole saw him slip further behind.

“I wasn’t feeling well at the start of the week. I had a stomach upset and nearly pulled out so I really am happy to finish second,” said Fung who won US$8,346.
Indonesian veteran Ilyassak, the halfway leader who was one shot behind Wisut after round three, carded a 72. The 46 year old from Aceh ended in sole possession of fifth place to be the leading local player.

The next event on the ASEAN PGA Tour is the US$60,000 Sabah Masters which will be played at Sutera Harbour Golf & Country Club from November 3 to 6.

Wisut Takes Control In Palembang

Palembang, Indonesia, October 15: Wisut Artjanawat, the highly-rated Thai golfer who many believe has the ability to succeed at the highest level, took the third round lead in the US$75,000 Palembang Musi Championship today.

He carded a six-under-par 66 at Palembang Golf Club giving him an opportunity to win his third title on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

Wisut leads the tournament on 11-under-par 205 by one shot from overnight leader Ilyassak from Indonesia, who fired a 69.

Young Malaysian star Nicholas Fung carded a 65, the lowest round of the week, to move into sole possession of third place two shots behind the leader.

“I have been struggling with my short game for a while but the greens here are a little slower which I prefer. I am holing a lot of putts,” said Wisut.

The 29 year old carded a bogey free round and twice made three birdies in a row from the seventh and later from the 15th.

Wisut is a proven winner having won the Thailand PGA Championship last year and in 2008 he won the Mercedes-Benz Masters Vietnam and the Mercedes-Benz Masters Philippines on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

He turned professional in 2006 after enjoying a distinguished amateur career which saw him claim the individual and team titles in the 2005 Putra Cup.

In an attempt to take his golf to the next level he re-invented his approach to the game this year.

“I have been working very hard with a mental and physical coach in Thailand. I am improving my fitness so that I don’t get tired so easily. I was getting tired after three rounds and did not have enough energy to finish off a tournament properly. Also I am working on my level of concentration so that I can stay focused and not clutter my mind with too many thoughts,” added the Thai.

Veteran Ilyassak, aged 46, led for most of the day but found water on the par four 17th and made a double bogey.

“That was a careless mistake which I am disappointed about. However, I feel a bit more comfortable going into the final round one shot off the lead,” said the strapping golfer for Aceh.

A five time winner on the local Indonesian circuit he is looking for his first victory on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

Fung, who recently claimed back to back titles on the Malaysian Tour, catapulted himself into contention with a brilliant round.

He dropped a shot on the third but then nailed eight birdies despite nursing an upset tummy.

“I have been practicing really hard and it showed today as I hit a lot of shots close and had many short birdies putts. This week has been a bit of a struggle as I have not been feeling that well. I played in the Korea Open last week on OneAsia and I think going from the food there to the food here has upset my stomach. I am feeling better now and looking forward to the final round,” said the 21 year old.

Thailand’s Tanatchan Puaktes returned a 70 and is four back.

Indonesia’s top golfer Rory Hie fired a 71 and is six behind Wisut to give him an outside chance of claiming the title.

Ilyassak Takes Halfway Lead

Palembang, Indonesia, October 14: Veteran Ilyassak loving the local layout but battling from an overdose of coffee moved into the lead in the US$75,000 Palembang Musi Championship today.

He shot a three-under-par 69 at Palembang Golf Club for a two round total of seven-under-par 137.

The 46 year old Indonesian leads by one stroke from compatriot Jamel Ondo.

Ondo shot a 66 in the fifth event of the season on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

Thailand’s Wisut Artjanawat and Tanutchan Puaktes are a stroke further behind after carding rounds of 68 and 71 respectively.

Ilyassak comes from Aceh where he says his local course is very similar to Palembang.

“The speed of the greens and the course conditions are just like Aceh. I am very comfortable playing here. I am a bit tired though as I have not slept well the past two nights. I have been drinking too much coffee. Last night was really bad as the waiter at the hotel mistakenly gave me an extra strong cup. I couldn’t sleep and felt hungry in the middle of the night,” said Ilyassak.

He has won five times on the local Indonesian circuit during a long career. A win this week would be his most significant so far and judging by the way he played today he has every chance.

The Indonesian fired an eagle, four birdies, a double bogey and a bogey to take command.

“The front nine was very good but I made some mistakes on the back nine. I teed up my ball too high on the par-three 11th and hit a bad tee shot into trouble. I took a double there,” added Ilyassak.

Ondo has been a professional for 10 years and is looking for his first victory.

He played like a winner on the outward half making birdies on one, three, four, seven, eight and nine. A level par back nine ensured he was very much in the hunt.

“My iron play was great and I hit it close on a lot of holes. All my birdie putts where short. I am a teaching professional at Royale Jakarta Golf Club so I love having the opportunity to play in tournaments on the ASEAN PGA Tour,” said Ondo.

Indonesia’s top golfer Rory Hie carded a 67 and is just three behind the leader along with first round leader Somsak Khaoprathum from Thailand who fired 74.

Malaysian Nicholas Fung is five back after coming in with a 73.

The halfway cut was made at six over par meaning that Singaporean amateur Choo Tze Huang surprisingly missed the cut.

Choo, the region’s top amateur having won the individual and team titles in last month’s Putra Cup, shot rounds of 72 and 79 to miss by one. A quadruple bogey eight on the 18th, which was his ninth hole of the day, did most of the damage.

Indonesia – Official Partner Country Of ITB Berlin 2013

In 2013 Indonesia will be the official partner country of ITB Berlin.

Dr. Sapta Nirwandar, Director General of Tourism Marketing of the Ministry for Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Indonesia and Dr. Martin Buck, Vice President of the Competence Center Travel & Logistics, signed a preliminary agreement on behalf of the world’s leading travel trade show and the future partner country of ITB Berlin.

“In recent years Indonesia has experienced huge economic growth. As one of the heavyweights in Southeast Asia Indonesia also offers great potential for Germany, its foremost trading partner in the European Union“, said Dr. Sapta Nirwandar. “Our participation in ITB Berlin 2013 will give a long-term boost to our popularity on the German and international market, and with our wide range of tourism products we will be sending out a positive signal to both trade visitors and the general public.

Indonesia is the biggest archipelago country in the world. It is rich with long history, cultures and heritage. Indonesia will warmly welcome all its guests and serve them with all the luxury tourism they ever wish for. In this country, guests will easily find any kind of luxurious services during their journey, from prestigious hotel, golf, spa, yacht to wedding and honeymoon packages. Journey and holiday to Indonesia will definitely be wonderful ones.”

Dr. Martin Buck: “This year Indonesia was represented at ITB Berlin for the 42nd time. We are delighted that the largest island nation in the world is expanding its presence at the show, and that in its role as official partner country it will be the focus of the international travel industry. Travelers representing the general public as well as MICE executives are fascinated by the diversity that Indonesia has to offer. Its innumerable islands and its centuries-old wealth of cultural and natural attractions are a magnet for travelers around the world. With so many animal and plant species, fascinating geological formations and outstanding opportunities for underwater diving, as a tourism destination Indonesia has stepped out of the shadow of Thailand and Malaysia. ITB Berlin is the ideal platform to present this country to the international media and to visitors, as well as to underline its importance as one of the leading and safest holiday destinations in Southeast Asia.“
At ITB Berlin 2011 Indonesia was represented with a two-tier stand covering 400 square metres and provided trade visitors and the general public with information on nature and its culture, the two mainstays of the Indonesian tourism industry. The campaign promoting “Wonderful Indonesia“ reflects the wide range of tourism products on offer, which in 2010 attracted seven million visitors to the country.

Somsak Shines In Palembang

Palembang, Indonesia, October 13: Thailand’s Somsak Khaoprathum experienced the thrill of leading a tournament for the first time in his fledgling career today when he fired a six-under-par 66 on the opening day of the US$75,000 Palembang Musi Championship.

A brilliant five-under-par back nine, which included four birdies in a row from the 14th, at Palembang Golf Club saw him shine in the fifth event of the season on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

Ilyassak, the elder statesman of Indonesian golf, rolled back the years and carded a 68 to tie for second place with Thailand’s Tanutchan Puaktes.

Malaysia’s Nicholas Fung and Anthony Fernando from the Philippines are a stroke further behind.

“It is my best round as a professional. I felt very relaxed and holed a lot of putts from about 20 feet. I wasn’t thinking about my score too much and so when I finished it was only then I realized that I was leading,” said Somsak.

The 24 year old from Bangkok made the turn in one under before bursting into life on the homeward stretch.

“I have mainly been playing on the local Tour in Thailand this year so it feels great to be able to play overseas for a change. It is exciting and definitely lifted my game today,” added Somsak, who turned professional in 2008.

In contrast to the young Thai leader, Ilyassak has over two decades of experience of playing in tournaments around the region. He has long been one of the most recognizable golfers from his country with his thick distinctive moustache and tall frame.

“This is an old style golf course which I am very used to playing. It gives me a bit of an advantage although it will difficult to keep this going against all these young players,” said the man from Aceh who has won multiple titles in Indonesia.

Ilyassak made five birdies and dropped one stroke.

Fung, one of the pre-tournament favourites having won back to back events on the PGM Tour of Malaysia last month was content with his opening salvo.

“It is a tricky course that requires a sharp short game. It is not a very long course but requires a lot of concentration. It was a good start for me,” said Fung, who claimed last year/s Mercedes-Benz Masters Vietnam on the ASEAN PGA Tour.

Singapore amateur Choo Tze Huang, winner of the individual and team titles in last month’s Putra Cup, made a solid start after carding a 72 and lies joint 10th with 14 other players.

Indonesia’s Rory Hie, the country’s top golfer, came in with a 73.

The former US college star is another of the favourties this week having finished second this year in the Indonesia PGA Championship and Indonesia Open presented by Enjoy Jakarta, both of which are on OneAsia.

Refreshing cocktails and canapes will be served on the course to enhance this lifestyle play and the event will end on a high note with a sumptuous buffet lunch at Boneka Restaurant of the St Regis Bali, complemented with wines and beers, during which, tournament winners will be announced.

Winners will be rewarded with great prizes including return flight tickets to Singapore and Hong Kong and accommodation at a 5-star hotel for 2 persons. For the Grand Prize, the winner will be treated to an exceptional and luxurious two night stay at the residential style beachfront Strand Villa at the St Regis Bali.
