Field Inspired By Success Of Local Winner
24 September 2012: The seventh Faldo Series Malaysia Championship will return to Royal Selangor Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur on October 16-18. Competitors will be inspired by the success of Nur Durriyah Damian who claimed the Girls' Under-16 title at the last Asia Grand Final and recently returned from a trip to Northern Ireland with the six-time Major winner.
More than 80 national golfers aged 12 to 21 will line up in the 54-hole Malaysia Championship at Royal Selangor. World Amateur Golf Ranking points will be on offer, as will a start at the seventh Asia Grand Final in China for five age-group winners.
17-year-old Damian from Damansara was the leading Malaysian at the last Asia Grand Final, hosted by Sir Nick Faldo at Mission Hills Golf Club in March. The Girls' Under-16 champion recently returned from the European final at Lough Erne Resort in Northern Ireland, a reward from the former world number one for her victory in Shenzhen.
Established in 1996, 38 Faldo Series tournaments now take place in 28 countries worldwide with more than 7,000 golfers participating each year. Past winners include Major Champions Rory McIlroy and Yani Tseng.
The 2012/2013 Faldo Series Asia schedule features a record 18 tournaments in 15 countries, including four in mainland China and others in The Philippines, Chinese Taipei, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brunei, Cambodia, Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Nepal, Japan, Indonesia and Thailand.
The Faldo Series Asia is supported by major partners ISPS, Mission Hills and The R&A, official golf wear partner UFL and official suppliers TaylorMade and Tricor. It is endorsed by the Asian Tour and the Asia Pacific Golf Federation.
