Title Sponsorship of a US$ 100,000 purse ASM golf tournament requires an investment of US$ 250,000 for details please visit or Click HERE

Should the Title Sponsor desire to sponsor an ASM event with higher stature and prize money, such as a US$ 250,000 prize purse ASM event, making their ASM event the largest Senior Professional Tournament in Asia outside of Japan, this would require a US$ 400,000 sponsorship investment.

Sponsoring a US$ 500,000 prize purse ASM event, would make the ASM event the 3rd largest purse on the European Seniors Tour, and would require a US$ 700,000 sponsorship investment.

In order to be the Title Sponsor and host the RICHEST Senior Professional Event in the WORLD it would require a prize purse of US$ 3 million

Presently the highest purse on the US Champions Tour is US$ 2.6 million. The US$ 3 million purse World Senior Masters would be televised partly live, and also in delayed telecast internationally, linked with the automatic WORLD co-sanctions from the other Senior Tours and the various TV distribution rights and obligations which their co-sanctions would bring, requiring a US$ 3.5 million sponsorship investment

ASM events also offer their naming right sponsors, significant corporate promotional exposure, via the numerous Corporate, Charity and Social Club golf events at which ASM Invitational Amateur Pro-Am Qualifier places, and ASM Pro-Am flights are offered as prizes.

ASM tournaments are heavily focused on amateur participation, involving over 800 amateur golfers, making them the largest Pro-Am events in the world with a RECORD breaking 6 Pro-Ams and 2 Amateur Qualifier events catering to over 800 amateur golfers ALL staged during the tournament week.

In addition to the wonderful experience of playing in ASM Pro-Am tournaments, an added attraction for the ASM Corporate Sponsors and the competitive and serious low handicap amateur golfers is the opportunity for the 9 "best gross" scoring participants from each Pro-Am to secure places in the ASM Amateur Semi Finals to be staged on Friday and Saturday incorporated into the first 2 days of the ASM Professional tournament, each flight will be played in a 3 Pro & 1 Amateur format.

Up to 80 amateur golfers derived from the 54 who qualified via the 6 ASM Pro-Ams along with 26 sponsor's exemptions, (who's entries MUST have a handicap of 10 or lower) will contest the ASM Amateur Semi Finals competing head to head with participating Senior Professional golfers under testing tournament conditions.

Numerous competitively priced Corporate Sponsorship packages are available and if required individual custom tailored ones can be created.

In addition to using ASM Pro-Ams as stand alone CRM tools, many companies have also invested in Corporate ASM Pro-Am flights and Sponsors benefits as a way to enhance their existing corporate and customer golfing events by offering ASM Pro-Am flights and other Sponsors benefits as prizes award to their VIP customers, business partners, and colleagues.

Highlights from the 2005 Asian Senior Masters @ Palm Resort - Johor:

Once again members from the Asian Seniors Tour, representing senior professional golfers from around the world gathered this time in Johor, Malaysia to contest the 2005 ASM @ Palm Resort, where Kuala Lumpur based, Australian Stewart Ginn who has won the Malaysian Open twice reigned supreme, defeating Korea’s, Choi Yoon Soo's defense of his 2003 ASM Singapore Championship Title at the recently concluded 2005 ASM @ Palm Resort.

Stewart Ginn won the 2005 ASM tournament at Palm Resort Golf and Country Club today without ever having lost the lead. Ginn completed the tournament with a two-over par final round of 74 for a 54-hole total of 219.

As predicted yesterday, his nearest challenger, fellow Australian, Randall Vines, did manage to creep up the leader board to tie Ginn, at three-over par, when Ginn dropped a shot at the par-4 13th hole.

Although Vines eventually went on to complete his round with a one-over par 73, one better than Ginn’s final round of 74, his final-day performance was not quite enough, as he finished two shots behind Ginn’s final three-round total of 219.

Third place was shared by two players, following a tie between New Zealand's John Williamson, with a final round of 76 for a 224 total, and past Malaysian Open Champion, Australian Brian Jones, who made a late rush with a final round one-under par score of 71, also for a total of 224.

Taiwan's Cheng Tsang Te finished in fifth place with a three-round total of 225, followed in sixth place by New Zealand's Richard Ellis who equaled the final day's best score of (71) to finish with a 226 total.

Others tied at 226 for 6th place included former Malaysian Seniors Open Champion, Australian John Clifford along with Philippines representative Reynaldo Alit and Taiwan's Legendry, Hsieh Min-Nan captain of the Dynasty Cup Team.

In his first appearance on the Asian Seniors Tour, Malaysia’s rising senior star, M. Ramayah, finished with an impressive tenth position, with a 54-hole total of 227.

The clash of the rising amateur stars of the future saw no let up, as Singapore’s, Feldman Tan from (SICC) proved that his performance throughout the week was no 'flash in the pan', completing an arduous week with an impressive amateur performance of a 77 on an extremely testing 7,065 yard course, to take the ASM Amateur Championship title by one shot from Malaysia’s Ng Yau Loong from (Royal Johor GCC).

Malaysia’s Paul Lim from (Palm Resort) took third place with an 81, followed by the very impressive 14-year old Singaporean junior, Lion Goh from (Laguna National GCC), who carded an 82.

Malaysia's Ms Bong Moy from (Palm Resort) emerged as the ASM Amateur ladies Champion, and carded a credible 83 on the final

The AST wish to thank Tan Sri Elyas Omar, the Malaysian Commissioner of Sports pictured with 2005 ASM @ Palm Resort Champion Stewart Ginn who so kindly took time from his busy schedule to Officiate at the ASM Welcome Cocktail Reception, on Tuesday and graciously returned on Sunday, as Guest of Honour to present trophies to the winners.

In his closing speech Tan Sri graciously closed the tournament by thanking all concerned and pledging the full support of the Ministry of Sports for the proposed 2006 Asian Seniors Tour events in Malaysia.

Highlights from the 2003 Asian Senior Masters @ Jurong Country Club - Singapore:

At the 2003 ASM spectators and competitors witnessed the nail biting sudden death play off on Sunday 9 Nov 2003 when Korea's Choi Yoon Soo defeated Canadian John Irwin on the first hole of a sudden death play-off, sinking a 3 meter putt for a birdie on the par 5 - 18th hole to clinch the inaugural 2003 ASM – Title.

Tied for third were first round leader Terry Gale from Australia, (then ranked 3rd on the EST 2003 order of merit), second round leader South African Tienie Britz and John Benda from the USA.

They were followed tied in sixth place at 2 under by Mike Ferguson from Australia, Kuo Chie-Hsiung from ROC Taiwan and Mario Siodina from the Philippines.

Singapore's leading amateur, Choo Tze Huang at the time only 15 years old with a 0 handicap won the IndoChine ASM Amateur Open Championship trophy with a gross score of 72 and Team IndoChine's Mark Lamb came second, and we look forward to their defense of their titles at the 2005 ASM @ Palm Resort.

In 2003 thanks to the hard work of the Jurong Country Club's staff and the event volunteers, the hugely successful 2003 ASM - Singapore tournament, accommodate some 662 rounds of amateur golf on 1 golf course, conducted in 6 back to back shotgun starts, quite a feat in itself, however in 2005 the expanded ASM event format involving a staggering 1,000 plus rounds of golf to be played during the tournament week, now requires the use of 2 golf courses, hence the relocation to Palm Resort in Johor.

The Asian Seniors Tour was formed at a meeting between the various participating PGA which was held at the inaugural 2003 ASM - Singapore event click HERE for further information.

The AST is always looking to expand and to stage more Asian Senior Master events in other countries in Asia and further a field, and we would be most interested to meet with golf clubs, event management companies, corporations and individuals who may wish to stage and own an ASM event in their country.

The AST is able to stage an ASM event almost anywhere in the world, all it takes is a modest SGD$ 400,000 corporate investment which will secure Title Sponsorship of an ASM event, and cover the US$ 100,000 Prize Money, securing the golf course, construction of on course VIP hospitality areas and the TV production and coverage on ESPN/StarSports.

Finally we wish to extend our heart felt thanks to the numerous people we do know who you are from all walks of life who have helped in so many different ways, going above and beyond the call of corporate sponsorship commitments and friendship to make the 2005 ASM @ Palm Resort possible and the success it was.

We remain most grateful to you all and wish to THANK YOU! individually, corporately, and collectively for your kind past and on going support, encouragement, and participation!

Sincerely yours,
