Having broken new ground with its International Series already this year, the Asian Tour ’s newest competition will make its debut in North Africa next month. The fifth stop of the inaugural season, the tournament will be played at the historic Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, which has hosted numerous European, LPGA, and PGA Champions events in the past. With US$1.5 million in prize money up for grabs, the International Series Morocco could play a key role in determining the Asian Tour Order of Merit champion, as well as the series’ money-list winner. Game’s future lies in Asia not America, LIV Golf boss Norman says “This has been an unprecedented season and we were delighted to be able to announce exciting news about the Asian Tour’s first visit to North Africa in Morocco – with its illustrious golfing heritage,” Cho Minn Thant, the Tour’s Commissioner and CEO, said. Alongside the likes of series winners Taehoon Ok, Nitithorn Thippong, Sihwan Kim and Scott Vincent, the field in Rabat will include eight of the best homegrown Moroccan players. “After three years of shutdown due to Covid-19, we are delighted to once again host a top-notch international professional competition,” Abderrahim Bouftas, president of the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, said. “It’s hugely exciting for Morocco to play host to the new International Series and a chance for us to see the very best and emerging talents from the Asian Tour and Moroccan golf.” The International Series Morocco will run from November 3 to 6, with the series then moving on to Egypt the following week for an event at Madinaty Golf Club, in Cairo.
