November 2: American Justin Thomas reveled in the limelight after claiming an impressive one-stroke victory over Australian Adam Scott at the lucrative CIMB Classic in Malaysia on Sunday.
In this Monday rewind, we look back at the US$7 million event sanctioned by the Asian Tour and PGA Tour and chose five interesting things which happened in the tournament.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]1[/dropcap]Thomas, who is playing in his second season on the PGA TOUR, is the seventh consecutive golfer in their 20s to win on the PGA TOUR which underlined the youth movement in America. He is also the youngest winner of the CIMB Classic, which was inaugurated in 2012.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]Adam Scott, 35, is the oldest player amongst the top-five finishers at the CIMB Classic.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]3[/dropcap]Rising Asian Tour star Richard T. Lee of Canada and Singaporean veteran Mardan Mamat both celebrated their birthdays during the week. Lee celebrated his 25th birthday on Thursday while Mardan celebrated his 48th birthday on Saturday.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]What’s the next best prize to win at the CIMB Classic? A hole-in-one, for sure. American Scott Brown was presented with the all-new BMW i8 after he aced the 15th hole during the opening round of the CIMB Classic.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]5[/dropcap]American Na, the Asian Tour’s Rookie of the Year in 2002 and now firmly established on the PGA TOUR, was left to rue another missed opportunity of claiming his second PGA title. This is his third consecutive week finishing inside top-three on the PGA Tour.
Ends.
