Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid, Chairman of Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM), took the opportunity to explain the rationale behind the creation of the newly unveiled EurAsia Cup trophy to Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak at his office here in Putrajaya.
The EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM will be played from March 27-29 at Glenmarie Golf and Country Club which will pit Team Asia, led by captain Thongchai Jaidee, against a Miguel Angel Jimenez-led Team Europe in a Ryder Cup-style showdown.
The specially commissioned trophy was produced in Malaysia and designed by Ahmad Sarji himself with the help of Mior Adlizul Jazmi of Permodalan Nasional Berhad and crafted by Hassan Mat Jusoh, a master craftsman at the renowned silversmiths KB Permai Krafperak Kelantan Silver.
The EurAsia Cup is sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour. The Government of Malaysia appointed PGM as the local facilitator of the event.
Tickets for the inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM are available for purchase via online and hotline. Golf fans can purchase tickets on www.ticketpro.com.my or call +603 7880 7999 for further details.
