Arjun Atwal set for Asian tour return in Korea and Macau

Atwal won the Order of Merit in 2003 to become India's first Asian number one before finding fame in the United States. Injuries have curtailed his career in the past few years which restricted his schedule to 18 tournaments on the PGA Tour and Web.Com Tour this year, based on his past champion's status.

Kuala Lumpur: Indian star Arjun Atwal will make a long-awaited return on the Asian Tour when he features in the CJ Invitational Hosted by KJ Choi in Korea next week and the Venetian Macau Open later this month.

The former Asian number one, who is the first Indian to win on the PGA Tour when he claimed victory at the 2010 Wyndham Championship, is returning from a six-week layoff to recuperate from injuries which has plagued his 2013 season.

The 40-year-old, who last played on the Asian Tour at the 2010 Hero Indian Open, said: "I'm just excited to come back to Asia to play again and see some faces I haven't seen in a while. I want to also try to gain back some confidence in my game."
