PETALING JAYA: The Sabah Masters, the season-ending Tour Championship on the Asean PGA Tour, is set for a strong future as the Sabah Tourism Board has announced it will sponsor the event for another three years starting from 2015.
The popular event was won two weeks ago by Thailand’s Wisut Artjanawat at Sutera Harbour Golf and Country Club, where it attracted one of the strongest fields of the season.
The Sabah Tourism Board helped revive the event in 2011 after a 10-year hiatus and has now further cemented its support.
The tournament has a storied history with some great names having won the title, including Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant in 1996.
This year marked the third successive season Sutera Harbour has played host.
The Sabah Masters will continue to play an important part in the Asean PGA Tour, which will boast another impressive schedule of more than 10 events across the region this year.
The schedule is due to be announced in the near future.
