The widely heralded SMBC Singapore Open will be contested from January 16 to 19 next year and will once again be jointly sanctioned by the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour Organisation.
Rising star Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand held off challenges from England duo Paul Casey and Matthew Fitzpatrick and Yoshinori Fujimoto of Japan to clinch the title earlier this year.
The 2020 SMBC Singapore Open will return to the award winning Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club – the tournament’s home since 2005 – and offer total prize money of US$1 million.
“We are delighted to announce that the SMBC Singapore Open will return next year in what are now the traditional mid-January dates,” said Ross Tan, President of the Singapore Golf Association.
Since its return in 2016 the SMBC Singapore Open has been won by Younghan Song of South Korea, who pipped then number one Jordan Spieth of the United States by a stroke in 2016, golden oldie Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand – whose victory came just days ahead of his 51st birthday in January 2017 – and Spanish maestro Sergio Garcia, who arrived at Sentosa in 2018 as the Masters champion.
