The Panasonic Open Golf Championship, which will be making its debut on the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour Schedules from April 21 to 24, has attracted a stellar line-up which includes current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader Marcus Fraser of Australia, who will challenge for the title against the leading stars from Japan.

Panasonic is very excited with this new digital development and initiative which we hope will expand the viewership of the tournament around the world.

Andy Wada, a former Asian Tour player, and Dave Fromm will lead the commentary in English during the live streaming broadcast on both April 23 and 24.

About Panasonic Open Golf Championship

For the first time in 112 years, golf is scheduled to be held in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Panasonic, a Worldwide Olympic Partner for over 25 years, will host the Panasonic Open once again in order to contribute to this coming new era of golf. In addition to the traditional men's tour, we have changed our attitude and will establish a Ladies' Step Up Tour tournament to support both male and female golfers who are competing for a spot in the Olympic Games.
