CHENGDU (China) (AFP) Chinas Liang Wenchong heads the pack this week as the fledgling OneAsia Tour tees off its 2010 season at the Luxehills Chengdu Open. The local hero, who made his name on the rival Asian Tour, has reached many milestones during his impressive career and plans to scale greater heights, starting at the one million dollar event. I want to make my mark overseas and of course have the opportunity to compete in Majors, said Liang. It is a strong field this week with many top Australian players and also the number of good young Korean and Chinese players here, it is something we have to look out for. To win this week I will have to play some of my best golf but this is exactly the kind of competition I want to face. Liang has been grouped with Australian Scott Strange and rising Korean Kim Kyung-Tae in the opening round on Thursday at the Luxehills International Country Club. Theres a good chance of an Australian winner because weve got a really strong group of players this week, including the likes of Craig Parry, said Strange. However, as you can see with the likes of Liang Wenchong, Shigeki Maruyama and Kim Kyung-Tae, its a really formidable field, so whoever wins this week is going to have to play really well to lift the trophy. Other pre-tournament favourites include Australians Andre Stolz, Mitchell Brown, Brad Kennedy and Scott Laycock, Simon Yates from Scotland, and Taiwans Yeh Wei-Tze. But virtually all the top names in Asian golf are missing. They have instead opted to play the SAIL Open in Delhi which is sanctioned by the Asian Tour. OneAsia, whose vision is to offer an alternative playing platform to the US PGA and European Tours, was established last year by bringing together Tours from China, South Korea and Australia. It has grand visions but has so far failed to get the influential Japan Golf Tour on board and is at loggerheads with the Asian Tour, which has accused it of stealing its tournament. OneAsia will host 11 events in 2010, while the Asian Tour has 27.
