ROYDEN LAM and Seigo Asada shared victories on the opening weekend of the PDC Asian Tour in Seoul, which also saw Noel Malicdem achieve a nine-dart finish.

The opening weekend of the new Asia-wide circuit saw almost 200 players competing in South Korea, with each event offering $10,060 in prize money.

Saturday's opening tournament featured a nine-dart finish from Philippines thrower Noel Malicdem, although he went on to lose 5-3 to Hong Kong's Royden Lam.

Lam also defeated Chinese ace Lihao Wen and Japan's Yuya Higuchi in the latter stages, although his hopes of completing a weekend double were ended by Arashi Matsumoto in the last 16 of Sunday's second event.

The Event Two final saw Hyun-Chul Park pay for missed match darts in the deciding leg of his tight contest with Seigo Asada, who came from 4-3 down to win 5-4, taking out 56 to take the victory.

Asada - who was knocked out by Yuki Yamada in the last 32 of Event One - overcame fellow countrymen Matsumoto and Haruki Muaramatsu on his way to Sunday's title.
