Large Australasian contingent face Japan Tour qualifying

Former top amateur Antonio Murdaca is one of many Australians chasing a playing future in Japan.
What must surely be the largest ever contingent of Australasian golfers to take on the final stage of qualifying for the Japan Golf Tour, today begin their quest for the right to play the lucrative tour in 2018.

Thirteen Australians and three New Zealanders will begin the 108-hole marathon test in Ibaraki near Tokyo in an endeavour to finish as high as they can over the next few days and gain playing rights.

While there is not a specific number of cards available for those involved, the higher up the list a player can finish the better their status will be on the Japan Tour next year.

Neven Basic, Matt Steiger, Andrew Evans, Adam Stephens, Stephen Leaney, Anthony Quayle, Nick Cullen, Adam Burdett, Aaron Townsend, Ryan Lynch, Steven Jeffress, Aaron Wilkin and Antonio Murdaca will be joined by New Zealanders,Tae Koh, Gareth Paddison and Harry Bateman.
