PETALING JAYA: LPGA Malaysia, one of the country’s premier golf tournaments, has been dealt with a massive blow after Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD) announced that it was pulling out as the title sponsor.

The staging of the ninth edition, slated for Sept 27-30, could be in major doubt unless the event organisers IMG are able to bring in another conglomerate to back the US$1.8mil (RM7.16mil) tournament.
