Maybank has today reaffirmed its commitment to support the continued pursuit of more ASEAN golf champions with the announcement of an all new ASEAN category in next year’s Maybank Championship to be held from 9-12 February at Saujana Golf and Country Club.
As the first of its kind on the International Tours, the category will see this region’s rising tour professionals, as well as top ten Malaysians from the PGM Tour, tee-off alongside some of the world’s best golfers from both the Asian and European Tours.
Maybank Chairman Tan Sri Dato’ Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor said, “After seeing the rising standards of golf professional excellence in the regional countries we operate in, I am very happy to share the news of our new ASEAN category for the Maybank Championship 2017.
Talents mature faster with opportunities to compete alongside the best, and in this case, more regional golfers will be up against some of the world’s elite. Our joint Asian/European Tour tournament has a proven track record in revealing future world beaters and I expect next year’s version to continue to provide new surprises.”
