As many as 144 domestic and foreign golfers, both professional and amateur, will compete in the Nam A Bank Vietnam Masters 2024 in the southern province of Long An from June 12-14.

This year's edition marks a significant step forward, as it will be co-hosted by the Vietnam Golf Association and the Asian Development Tour (ADT), opening the door to foreign golfers for the first time, the association (VGA) said on Friday.

The tournament boasts a total prize fund of US$85,000, distributed according to the ADT's regulations. The champion will receive nearly $15,000.

It will be contested over three rounds (54 holes) in a stroke play format. After the first 36 holes, a cut will be made, with the top 50 golfers advancing to the final round. The player with the lowest cumulative score in the end will be crowned the champion.

As the longest-running professional golf tournament in Vietnam since its inception in 2017, the Vietnam Masters has established itself as a benchmark for professional golf events in the country, laying a foundation for professional golf tournaments and exerting a significant influence on the Vietnamese golf community, said VGA Deputy Secretary General Nguyen Thai Duong.
