BEST BET OF MALAYSIA Gavin Kyle Green 
                                      He had every thing since birth----


Gavin looking forward to Maybank Malaysian Open 2014



Kuala Lumpur, date, 2014: Gavin Kyle Green will spear head the Malaysian amateurs challenge in the US$2.75 million Maybank Malaysian Open 2014 which is staged at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KGCC) from April 17-20.
Green, Malaysia’s leading amateur, finished as the best placed Malaysian in last year’s Maybank Malaysian Open when he finished joint 22nd.

He will be joined by fellow amateurs Ervin Chang, Solomon Emilio Rosidin and Mohamad Wafiyuddin Abdul Manaf, who is the last player to be selected by the Malaysian Golf Association (MGA), in the event which is sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour.

Mohamad Wafiyuddin was selected due to his outstanding performance in the recent National Trial where he finished first. He also placed second at the Kuala Lumpur Amateur Open and was part of the Malaysian golf team that won the bronze medal in the 2013 South East Asian Games in Myanmar.

Besides these four amateurs, 18 other Malaysians – Nicholas Fung, Danny Chia, Shaaban Hussin, Iain Steel, S. Murthy, S. Siva Chandran, Rizal Amin, Airil Rizman, Sukree Othman, Iylia Jamil, Khor Kheng Hwai, Shaifubari Muda, R. Nachimuthu and Arie Fauzi, Kemarol Baharin, Ben Leong, Wilson Choo and Kenneth De Silva – had already booked their places in the Maybank Malaysian Open.

Green is ranked No. 24 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) following his stellar performances on the American college circuit.

Among his major victories was winning the prestigious College All-America Golf Classic title at the El Paso Country Club in Texas in November.

When asked about his chances this year, Green said: “I had an excellent Maybank Malaysian Open last year by finishing joint 22nd and as the best amateur and best Malaysian.

“What happened last year was unexpected but I won’t get carried away. Obviously, I would like to finish higher this year and will definitely give 100% to do so.

“It won’t be an easy task, but I like to think positive. I’m sure all the Malaysian golfers will be determined to shine in their home event.”

Malaysian Golf Association (MGA) president Tan Sri Dato’ Setia Mohd Anwar Mohd Nor lauded the positive impact the Maybank Malaysian Open has had on the game and said he hopes more locals will make the cut this year.

“To be the best, one has to always compete against the best. Through the years, some of the world’s top golfers have competed in the Maybank Malaysian Open and this has resulted in our local golfers having to raise their game,” said Tan Sri Anwar.

“Nicholas Fung is among the top 30 on the Asian Tour while Gavin is No. 24 among the amateurs in the world.

“We at MGA hope more of our players rise up to the challenge in this year’s Maybank Malaysian Open.”

Among the star players in this year’s event are Lee Westwood, Louis Oosthuizen, Matteo Manassero and Thongchai Jaidee.
Maybank Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor, applauded the progress of the Malaysian players.

“Now that the line-up of Malaysian players to the MMO is finalised, all eyes will be on how they will bear up to the pressure of competing with some of the world’s top golfers,” said Tan Sri Megat Zaharuddin.

“I believe the local players have learnt much from the opportunities given to them to play against the top golfers on the Asian and European Tours. I hope they will rise to the occasion and put up a tough challenge.”

The Maybank Malaysian Open was the first tournament in Asia to be co-sanctioned by The European and Asian Tours in 1999, the year Gerry Norquist took home the title.

Cool Matteo Manassero


Kuala Lumpur, March 12, 2014: Italian Matteo Manassero and Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee will join Lee Westwood and Louis Oosthuizen when the Maybank Malaysian Open 2014 tees off at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC) from April 17-20.

All four former champions are title sponsor Maybank’s confirmed Star Players for this year’s Maybank Malaysian Open which offers a prize purse of US$2.75 million.

Young gun Manassero, who won the 2011 title two days before his 18th birthday, turns 21 on April 19, is hoping for another special celebration in Malaysia.

The Italian is the youngest golfer to win a European Tour event having won the Castello Masters Costa Azahar in Valencia, Spain on May 3, 2010.

Since winning in Malaysia three years ago, Manassero has steadily moved up the world rankings and is now inside the top 50 with four tournament victories to his name.

Thongchai, meanwhile, is a three-time Asian Tour Order Of Merit (OOM) winner and a two-time winner of the Malaysian Open, having triumphed in the 2004 and 2005.

A former paratrooper in the Royal Thai Army, Thongchai has 16 career wins to his name, including five on the European Tour.

Former world number one Westwood of England, who won the Malaysian Open in 1997, was announced as the bank’s first Star Player early last month while Major winner Oosthuizen confirmed his participation at the end of February.

The rising status and prestige of the Maybank Malaysian Open in recent years has been due to several factors, key among them is the excellent teamwork and relationship Maybank has with all the stakeholders involved in the event. This close-knit relationship has a gone a long way in ensuring the immense success of the Malaysian Open. The level of excellence the event has attained is the reason world class stars continue to make their way to our shores each year.

Having these four world class stars, who have huge followings in Malaysia, will certain give the 2014 a big boost.

Maybank Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor, said, “We now have four former champions who have confirmed their participation for the Maybank Malaysian Open 2014.”

“Manassero and Thongchai represent everything that’s good about golf. One is a youngster who knows no fear and goes out and attacks the course. The other knows patience is the key to winning and that has been one reason why Thongchai has lasted so long at the very top echelon of the sport.

“I expect a tough battle as not only all four have tasted glory in the Maybank Malaysian Open and will surely want to hold the prestigious trophy aloft once again, but other rising talents are steadily making their mark worldwide.”

Malaysian Golf Association (MGA) president Tan Sri Dato’ Setia Mohd Anwar Mohd Nor said he hopes the four former champions will inspire the Malaysian players.

“I hope our 22 Malaysians will learn from this quartet and rise to the challenge to reach the top.” said Tan Sri Dato’ Setia Mohd Anwar.

The Maybank Malaysian Open was the first tournament in Asia to be co-sanctioned by The European and Asian Tours in 1999, the year Gerry Norquist took home the title.
