Black Mountain sponsored player Berry Henson is excited to return to the Philippines, the country where he won his first Asian Tour title back in 2011.

The American will be gunning for glory at the US$300,000 Solaire Open next week as he aims to challenge for the prestigious 2014 Asian Tour Order of Merit.

Henson has set himself a lofty target but he believes that he has the ability to be crowned as the Asian Tour number one.

In this blog, he talks about his form in 2013, returning to the Philippines and how practising and staying at Black Mountain has made him feel at home in Asia.

“Obviously I’m looking forward to getting back to Manila because that’s where I won my first Asian Tour title.  Hopefully I can find some magic which I found in 2011.

All in all 2013 was a good year but there’s still a lot of room for improvement. I’m just trying to stay patient.

I haven’t really had much momentum since my back-to-back wins in 2011 (won on the Asian Development Tour before the Philippine Open) but I feel very comfortable out here and I feel that I can compete for the Order of Merit crown so I’m looking for a few wins here this year.

This is my fourth year on the Asian Tour and I live and train at Black Mountain so Asia really feels like my second home. I feel comfortable here and it is only a matter of time before I start winning again.”
