PETALING JAYA: Forty-four professionals will be vying for the four slots to compete in the Maybank Malaysian Open when they compete in the national qualifiers at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club on Tuesday.
To date, 17 Malaysians – Nicholas Fung, R. Nachimuthu, Arie Fauzi, Rizal Amin, Airil Rizman Zahari, Sukree Othman, Iylia Jamil, Khor Kheng Hwai, Shaifubari Muda, Danny Chia, Shaaban Hussin, Iain Steel, S. Murthy, S. Siva Chandhran, Gavin Kyle Green, Ervin Chang and Solomon Emilio Rosidin – have confirmed their places in the tournament proper, which will take place at the same venue from April 17-20.
A total of 22 slots are reserved for Malaysians in the 156-player field for the US$2.75mil (RM9.14mil) tournament. Gavin, Ervin and Solomon are amateurs and the Malaysian Golf Association (MGA) will name another amateur to complete the Malaysian line-up.
