Australians Scott Barr and Kalem Richardson still face an uphill battle to retain their Asian Tour cards after disappointing performances at this week's Indonesian Open.

Both players are outside the top-60 on the Order of Merit who automatically keeps their privileges for next season and both failed to make any inroads at this week's tournament.

Richardson is currently 68th on the standings and Barr 65th with just one full field event remaining on the schedule.

Richardson has struggled for form across the year though has given himself hope with a run of recent good finishes.

But his T47 finish in Indonesia, coupled with a missed cut at the recent Manila Masters, have stopped his momentum after a T8-T13 run in the previous two tournaments.

Barr is facing a similar situation to last year when he secured his 2016 card in the final event of the year.

Barr and Richardson were among five Australians to make the cut at the tournament, Adam Groom claiming top honours finishing T17.

Barr and Marcus Both finished T27 while Sam Brazel joined Richardson at T47.

Terry Pilkadaris missed the cut while Unho Park withdrew after firing an opening round 78.
