PETALING JAYA: The magnificent trophy for the inaugural EurAsia Cup has been unveiled as excitement continues to rise ahead of next week’s showdown at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.

The specially-commissioned trophy was produced in Malaysia and designed by Professional Golf of Malaysia chairman Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid, with the help of Mior Adlizul Jazmi of Permodalan Nasional Berhad, and crafted by Hassan Mat Jusoh, a master craftsman at the renowned KB Permai Krafperak Kelantan Silver.

Using traditional Malaysian techniques and working almost entirely by hand, it took four expert craftsmen over two months to fashion the stunning trophy that now awaits the winning captain.

The final silverpiece weighs over 6kg and stands 45.72cm tall.

“The EurAsia Cup is a very important new event in the world of golf, so we wanted to have a suitably impressive new trophy for the players to compete for,” said Ahmad Sarji.

“It was also important for us to have something that shows off Malaysia’s wonderful craftsmanship and reflects the role Malaysia has played in the beginnings of the EurAsia Cup.

“I very much hope that come next Saturday, it is Team Asia’s (name) that is engraved on the trophy as the inaugural winners.”
