Pereira and Ogletree believe International Series offers life-changing opportunity



 American Andy Ogletree and Chilean Mito Pereira believe the International Series offers a ‘life-changing’ opportunity to golfers throughout Asia and beyond, having been impressed by the opening event of 2023 at Al Mouj Golf in Oman.


The elevated series forms part of the Asian Tour schedule, with the 10 International Series events spread across Asia, Europe and the Middle East throughout the year, with every tournament offering a prize purse of US$2million and providing a pathway to the biggest stages in golf.


Beyond the incredible prize funds, the ground-breaking series also provides the winner of The International Series Order of Merit with exemption into the following season’s LIV Golf League and the opportunity to compete against some of the biggest names in the sport.


Pereira, 27, believes that is an opportunity not to be missed and commented: “It is an amazing opportunity for players to have that pathway to LIV. That is genuinely life changing and I am really happy that these events are happening and golfers from all over the world have these opportunities to progress further. That is the way it should be.”


Ogletree, who claimed last year's International Series Egypt event, echoed the sentiments of the Chilean, stating his aim is to return to LIV and utilise that pathway to play more than the one tournament he has featured in so far.


He added: “For me, the ultimate goal is to get back on LIV. I have only played one tournament, but I really want to get back there and experience it again. To have this pathway is great and a great opportunity for Asian Tour players.


“LIV is a great place to be, I know my game is coming into form at the right time so hopefully I get some more opportunities and have that chance again in the future.”


Pereira has been impressed by the first International Series event of the season on the 2023 Asian Tour schedule and concluded: This place is great, super impressed by the facilities and the golf course. The set-up of the International Series, everything has been impressive. The people are great, so friendly.


“I didn’t expect the course and the players on show to be this good. If someone wants to win this week they are going to have to play well. I’m really happy to be here.”


Ogletree and Pereira were out in the morning wave of day two at Al Mouj Golf, poised to make a charge up the leaderbaord before the weekend.
