Fans in more than 150 countries will be able to watch the Asia-Pacific’s future golf stars from the comfort of their own homes when the region’s top amateurs compete in the 12th edition of the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (AAC) at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club this week.
The first round begins Wednesday, November 3, with the final round scheduled for Saturday, November 6.
Japan’s Keita Nakajima, No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR), is keen to follow in the footsteps of his mentor, two-time AAC champion (2010 and 2011) and 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama, and his best friend 2018 AAC champion Takumi Kanaya.
Also in the field is defending champion Yuxin Lin of China. The WAGR No. 23 is hoping to become the first player in the history of the championship to win the title for a third time after success in New Zealand in 2017 and Shanghai in 2019.
