5 things we learned at the Sarawak Championship


Singapore, July 9: Here are the 5 takeaways from the 2018 Sarawak Championship where John Catlin took home his second Asian Tour title.

1. John Catlin is the first player to win twice in 2018. It was also his second win in two months following his first Asian Tour title in China in May

2. The Sarawak Championship was the first time the Asian Tour visited the Borneo state in Malaysia. However Sarawak has been a regular stop on the Asian Development Tour (ADT). Interestingly, Catlin finished second at the Damai Golf and Country Club last year on the ADT.

3. Spaniard Javi Colomo enjoyed his first top-five finish on the Asian Tour since 2013. The last time he finished tied fifth was at the Hong Kong Open six years ago.

4. The Open bound Danthai Boonma and Jazz Janewattananond did not win the Sarawak Championship but their tied second place result will give them a huge confidence boost ahead of their Major debut next week.

5. Many of the Asian Tour stars visited Sarawak and the Damai Golf and Country Club for the first time. They were awed by the beauty of the Malaysian Borneo state and what it had to offer, just look at their photos below:
