SINGAPORE: Veteran M. Ramayah will captain Malaysia against Singapore in the second Prudential Causeway Trophy at the Laguna National Golf and Country Club in Singapore from June 6-8.
Ramayah, a 13-time World Cupper, will be bidding to help Malaysia win the trophy for the first time. Malaysia lost 15½-8½ in the inaugural tournament at the same venue last year.
Leading the 12-man Malaysian team is Nicholas Fung, who helped Team Asia to a 10-10 draw with Team Europe in the inaugural EurAsia Cup at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.
Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) representative M. Sasidaran said Malaysia would be banking on Ramayah’s expertise to help the team win the trophy.
“Our players are looking forward to the Prudential Causeway Trophy as we want to make amends after losing in last year’s tournament,” said Sasidaran at the launch of the tournament at Laguna National Golf and Country Club on Wednesday.
