Jakarta, 13 September, Get ready for the Indonesian Masters 2023, the biggest international golf tournament in Indonesia, which was inaugurated in 2011 and is the idea of the chairman of the Asian Tour, Jimmy Masrin, to be held on November 16–19, 2023, at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.
Every year the Indonesian Masters is able to present world stars such as Lee Westwood, Thongchai Jaidee, Ian Woosnam, Michael Campbell, Ernie Els, Darren Clarke, Thomas Bjorn, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Brandt Snedeker, Henrik Stenson, and Justin Rose. Not only world players, but Indonesian pro golfers are also ready to compete for the best places in this tournament.
Since the start of the International Series in the previous season, this tournament has become one of the flagship events of the Asian Tour in collaboration with LIV Golf Investment. With prizes ranging from US$1.5 million to US$2 million, the International Series has become a marquee event on the Asian Tour, attended by the best and elite golfers from Asia and the world.
Don’t forget that PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk, or BNI, is again the title sponsor of this tournament, and the Royale Jakarta Golf Club will again be the venue for the eleventh time since this tournament was first held. And what is special is that the BNI Indonesian Masters will also be the closing event of the 2023 competition season, where the champion of the Asian Tour Order of Merit and International Series will be determined, so that the players under the auspices of the Asian Tour will do their best for this tournament.
The founder of the Indonesian Masters, Jimmy Masrin, said that his party was proud to be able to announce the holding of the BNI Indonesian Masters for the eleventh time. “We are very happy that the Asian Tour still entrusts the BNI Indonesian Masters as one of their flagship tournaments. This is one of the biggest achievements for us since we first held this big tournament 12 years ago, and by being part of the International Series, the BNI Indonesian Masters, “which presents an elite level of competition with millions of dollars in prizes, will of course be attended by extraordinary players, which has never happened before in Asia. This of course encourages golfers in the country to be more motivated and train harder so they can compete in the BNI Indonesian Masters tournament,” said Jimmy at the BNI Indonesia Masters press conference in Jakarta on Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
BNI President Director Royke Tumilaar said that the existence of this tournament, which is consistently held and invites top golf players from all over the world, has encouraged BNI to continue to support this activity and is committed to being the title sponsor for the 2023 Indonesian Masters.
