Scott Strange – one of five Aussies to gain Asian Tour status
Five Australians have earned Asian Tour Status for 2020 following the completion of the Qualifying Tour’s Qualifying School in Cha Am in Thailand.
Victorian Will Heffernan has finished runner-up, West Australian and former two time European Tour winner, Scott Strange 9th, Victorian Ben Eccles and Queensland’s Cory Crawford 17th and Sydney’s Kevin Yuan 23rd, all finishing within the leading 35 players who earned the right to play the Asian Tour this year.
“I am from Melbourne and I turned professional last year,” said Heffernan. “I have been to a fair few of Qualifying Schools over the last couple of years and I have gained some good experiences which helped this week. To get my Asian Tour card for this season just means a lot to me.
