When entering the above group, he twice finished in the top 10 with the most prize money at 24,800 USD for the T7 position at the 2016 Manila Masters. In ADT, Duy Nhat won the 2015 Ciputra Golfpreneur Tournament trophy, with 17,500 USD. With this title, he is still the only Vietnamese national champion in ADT history, since 2010.

The Asian Tour launched the International Series after receiving a partnership with LIV Golf Investments with its major shareholder being a Saudi Arabian public investment fund and committing to invest 300 million USD in 10 years. With this financial source, the International Series is expected to include 10 annual international tournaments in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, including Vietnam. In its opening year, this group of events started in Thailand in March, went to the UK in April, and arrived in Singapore from August 11-14. The next leg takes place in Korea from August 18-21, without a Vietnamese representative. The prize fund for all four prizes is 1.5 million USD.

LIV Golf Investments was founded by legendary golfer Greg Norman and CEO. The company also operates the Invitational Series, which has a reputation as a threat to the PGA Tour and its DP World Tour ally, as well as helping the Saudis cover their bad reputation on human rights and gender equality.
