The PTO Tour Asian Open takes centre stage in Singapore this weekend, with the Pro Men taking to the course on Sunday August 20 for an epic showdown.

Some of the world’s best middle-distance stars will lock horns with a massive prize purse on offer, and it is shaping up to be a real beauty.

We know now that Norwegian superstar Gustav Iden WILL join compatriot Kristian Blummenfelt on the start line after the pair make the long trip from Paris following that Olympic Games Test Event this week.

One high-profile DNS this week though, with Danish ace Magnus Ditlev announcing that he will not take part after being a DNF at the US Open with stomach issues. Instead, Ditlev will put his full focus on the IRONMAN World Championship in Nice on September 10.

Another high-profile absentee is Aussie star Max Neumann, who had stunned the big guns with a terrific performance to win that European Open in Ibiza earlier this year.
