KUALA LUMPUR: The third round of the PGM Tour’s CCM Rahman Putra Championship was cancelled due to the hazardous haze that has engulfed most parts of Peninsular Malaysia.
Confirming the move yesterday, tournament director of the RM200,000 event, Gen (retired) Ron Mahendran said the air pollutant index (API) was “too high to risk the health of the players”.
“We have no choice but to forego the third round today (yesterday) as the API was in the region of 164 and deemed a health hazard,” he explained. “As a consequence we will have one more round tomorrow, if the circumstances allow, after which we will declare the winner.
“Failing this, we will hold a sudden-death playoff between the two top players – Singaporean Lam Zhiqun and Pavit Tangkamolprasert of Thailand, who are the joint leaders on six-under-par 138 after Thursday’s second round.”
Khor Kheng Hwai is Malaysia’s top-placed player, in a tie for third alongside first round leader Paul Harris of the US, Japan’s Konosuke Nakazato and Australian Daniel Bringolf, who are all a stroke off the pace on 139.
