For more than two weeks, we have welcomed many golfers from Sweden and other parts of the world at Black Mountain Golf Club. These players chose to stay and train at Black Mountain as they prepare for the important Asian Tour Qualifying School.
We are glad and proud to host these players, who have chosen Black Mountain as their training ground because we provide great accommodation, a good driving range, excellent chipping and putting greens and an immaculate golf course.
The Asian Tour Qualifying School Final Stage will begin this week from Wednesday to Saturday (February 12-15) and we would like to take this opportunity to wish our Swedish golfers David Palm, Gustaf CJ Kocken and Malcolm Kokocinski the best of luck!
The Qualifying School is a very important event because they will earn an Asian Tour card for the 2014 season if they finish inside the top-40 and ties.
If they do make the grade, they have a great chance to follow in the footsteps of Black Mountain sponsored players Rikard Karlberg and Berry Henson, who have enjoyed remarkable careers in Asia.
Rikard even came close to winning his third Asian Tour title at the King’s Cup last month!
Apart from the Swedish players, it has also been our pleasure to host Miles Tunnicliff of England. The Englishman is hoping to get his career back on track after struggling with a back injury last year. The two-time European Tour winner has been a wonderful guest and we hope that his stay at Black Mountain will give him the extra edge in Qualifying School.
Mile expressed his thanks to Black Mountain via his Twitter account, “A big thanks to @BlackMtGolfClub for letting me use the great facilities for the last two days! Great preparation for Asian Tour Q-School.”
It is going to be an exciting week and we can’t wait for the action to begin! Hopefully we will see more Swedish representation on the Asian Tour.
