Queen’s Cup Golf from June 18

Queen’s Cup Golf from June 18

The prestigious Queen’s Cup, staged in honour of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, is poised to unearth the future stars of the game when it returns on to the Asian Tour for its seventh consecutive edition from 18-21 June.

A host of upcoming players, including Sri Lanka’s Mithun Perera and Korea’s Jeunghun Wang, will be looking for their maiden breakthrough at the Santiburi Samui Country Club in a fortnight.

Thai heavyweight and defending champion Thaworn Wiratchant, who holds an unprecedented 18 victories on the Asian Tour, is expected to face a stiff challenge from the likes of Singapore’s Mardan Mamat of Singapore, Canadian Richard T. Lee, compatriots Chapchai Nirat and Prom Meesawat all bidding for top honours at the US$300,000 event.

Wang, who has yet to miss a single cut in his last 22 starts on the region’s premier Tour, will be relishing his prospects of securing his first win at the Queen’s Cup where he finished tied-sixth last year.

Perera, who endured several near-misses in his quest for his maiden Asian Tour victory last season, is eager for another shot at glory in what is his third appearance at the Queen’s Cup.

Perera’s best finish on the Asian Tour came at the 2014 Panasonic Open India where he settled for second place after losing to India’s S.S.P. Chawrasia on the first play-off hole.
