Shaun Norris, joint second in Singapore last year, returns here after an outstanding 2018 season that saw him finish second on the Japan Golf Tour Organization (JGTO) Money List.
He claimed the Heiwa PGM Championship – his third win in Japan since 2016 – and had five other top-five finishes.
The Pretorian earned his Asian Tour card by finishing tied 12th at the 2015 Qualifying School in Thailand. He went on to cap a dream rookie season by winning the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship (TPC) in Chinese Taipei.
He followed up that victory with his second win at the Leopalace21 Myanmar Open, which like the SMBC Singapore Open is joint sanctioned with the JGTO, with a comfortable four-shot victory in 2016.
He is also a two-time winner on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa.
