Brief: Angkor Amateur Open

SIEM REAP - The 2009 Angkor Amateur Golf Open tees off this weekend at Siem Reap's Angkor Golf Resort. Today will see a 48-strong field take to the course for practice rounds, with two days of Medal Play scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Twenty of the golfers boast a handicap of nine or less, with current Vietnam Amateur Open champion Ian Quek honouring an invitation. Countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and the US will also be represented. The 18-hole course, designed by recently knighted Sir Nick Faldo and opened February 1, 2008, was voted third-best new course in Asia by readers of Asian Golf Monthly.
