PETALING JAYA: Thailand’s Wisut Artjanawat will be chasing his second win of the season when he tees off at the PGM CCM Rahman Putra Championship, which begins at the Rahman Putra Golf Club on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old Wisut surged to the top of the Asian Development Tour’s Order of Merit after winning the opening leg – the PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship – in Kedah last week.
But he will face a strong challenge from defending champion James Byrne of Scotland, fellow Thai Pavit Tangkamolprasert, Malcolm Kokocinski of Sweden and China’s rising star Ye Jian-feng in the RM200,000 event.
England’s Grant Jackson, Japan’s Kodai Ichihari and Darren Tan of Australia will also be amongst an international mix of players from over 15 countries challenging for honours.
Among the 46-member strong Malaysian cast in the field are R. Nachimuthu, Shaaban Hussin, Sukree Othman and Kemarol Baharin, who won the national qualifiers for the Maybank Malaysian Open last month.
The winner will take home US$10,500 (RM34,650) and six Official World Golf Ranking points.
