Dubuisson heading to Indonesia

Victor Dubuisson will add star power to the fourth edition of the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters when it tees off at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club from April 24-27.

With a stellar line-up that already includes reigning Asian Tour Order of Merit champion Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand, major winner Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa, defending champion Bernd Wiesberger of Austria and Thai star Thongchai Jaidee, Dubuisson’s confirmation is set to further light up the $750,000 Asian Tour event.

The Frenchman is no stranger to success, having won his maiden European Tour title by fending off the combined challenges of Tiger Woods, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose in Turkey last year.

The world number 21 will also be well remembered by fans worldwide for the titanic battle with Australia’s Jason Day in the final at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in February.

While he was pipped to the title by Day, the 23-year-old rising star earned plenty of admiration for his flamboyant golf which saw him pull off several extraordinary shots during the final match and he is expected to show that similar brilliance and resolve to win his first title on the Asian Tour.

Dubuisson was also part of Team Europe who competed in the inaugural EurAsia Cup against Team Asia ,who staged a dramatic fight back to draw 10-10 with Europe in Malaysia last week.
