Scott Vincent rounded off a strong week on the Asian Tour on Sunday with a four-under-par 67 to finish in a share of 15th position in the International Series Korea at Lotte Skyhill Country Club – on Jeju Island.

The International Series Korea was the fourth event this year in an elevated series of tournaments supported by LIV Golf on the Asian Tour.

On Sunday, two more International Series events were announced for 2022 – International Series Morocco on November 3-6, followed by International Series Egypt on November 10-13.

Vincent claimed the England-led of the International Series in June at Slaley Hall in Newcastle – an event that marked the Tour’s first-ever tournament in the United Kingdom.

His solid finish in South Korea on Sunday meant he maintained his lead at the top of the Asian Tour International Series Order of Merit Standings.

The gifted Zimbabwean is in strong contention to win the Asian International Series’ season-defining crown having earned US$ 407,025.00.

American Sihwan Kim is in second position having amassed US$ 327,533.33 from the three events he has featured in three events while Thailand’s Phachara Khongwatmai ($US 312,905.00) is third.

The top three players on the International Series Order of Merit Standings automatically qualify for the next LIV Golf Invitational Series event at International Golf Club in Boston from September 2 to 4.

At the weekend, Vincent was part of the large group finishing in a tie for 15th at 8 under together with South Africa’s Ian Snyman (70) and American Andy Ogletree (70).

Emerging Korean star Taehoon Ok holed a clutch five-foot birdie putt on the last to beat his famous compatriot Bio Kim by one stroke on Sunday and land the International Series Korea.

After a fierce battle down the stretch, Ok prevailed after carding a three-under-par 68, for a tournament total of 15 under par. Bio also came in with a 68.

American Trevor Simsby fired a 67 for sole possession of third, one stroke further back.
