'Part-Time' Golfer Fraser Surprises To Share Lead With Elvira At The Maybank Championship 2019

Shah Alam, 21 March 2019: Australia’s Marcus Fraser and Spain’s Nacho Elvira took a share of the first round lead by returning with matching seven-under-par 65s at the Maybank Championship on Thursday.

Fraser, who won the inaugural Maybank Championship in 2016, surprised even himself with his position on the leaderboard after considering himself as a ‘part-time golfer’ nowadays. Ranked 345th on the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR), the Australian has not broken into the winner’s circle since that victory in Malaysia.

Philippines’ Angelo Que opened his campaign at the US$3 million event in a blistering pace, getting to nine-under after 11 holes.

Two double-bogeys on 15 and 16 knocked him off the perch of the leaderboard but he would finish the round just like the way he started with a birdie to trail Fraser and Elvira by one shot in a share of third place with Austria’s Matthias Schwab and Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond at the Saujana Golf and Country Club.

Jazz showed why he is leading the Asian Tour Order of Merit with another assured performance.
The three-time Asian Tour winner marked his card with seven birdies and a bogey for an encouraging 66 at the Malaysian showpiece.

South Africa’s Ernie Els, who will captain the International team for this year’s Presidents Cup, signed for a 68 to share seventh place together with seven other players that include India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar, Australia’s Zach Murray, Thailand’s Poom Saksansin and Malaysia’s Nicholas Fung.

Shah Alam, 22 March 2019: Indonesia’s Danny Masrin remained unfazed by the prospect of going up against his more illustrious rivals as he charged up the leaderboard to trail Belgium’s Thomas Pieters by one shot in tied-second place at the Maybank Championship on Friday.

Masrin, who is playing under the ASEAN invite category this week, did not display any signs of nerve as he continued to put himself in contention at the US$3 million event with his two-day total of seven-under-par 137.

After opening with a three-under-par 69 at the Saujana Golf and Country Club, the Indonesian went one better as he traded seven birdies and a three bogeys to sign for a 68 and a share of second place with Spain’s Nacho Elvira.

Pieters, who is one half of the Belgium’s World Cup of Golf winning duo in Melbourne last November, started the day two shots off the lead in sixth place.

He suffered an early setback with a bogey on two but responded well with four birdies on holes four, 10, 13 and 16 to take his place atop the leaderboard.

American Paul Peterson made light work of the sweltering heat in Malaysia by signing for a 68 to make his move up the leaderboard and take a share of fourth place that also included Major winner Ernie Els of South Africa, Thailand’s Jazz Janaewattananond and 2014 Asian Tour Order of Merit champion David Lipsky of the United States.

Starting the day five shots off the lead, Peterson was among the early morning starters and he went off quickly by firing birdies on 11 and 18 to quickly close the gap in his opening back-nine 10.

The American, who won his only Asian Tour title in Myanmar in 2018, continued to sink even more birdies on holes one, three and five to put himself into a commanding position for the weekend rounds.

Thailand’s Prom Meesawat was also in the heat of the battle but he returned unscathed after firing a 71 to stay close to the leaders in a share of 11th place.

The weekend cut was set at even-par with 74 players making the cut.

Hend Roars With Drama-Filled Victory The Maybank Championship 2019
Aussie comes from three shots back to get into a playoff and then win it for his third European Tour title


Scott Hend (AUS) - photo credit Asiantour

Shah Alam, 24 March 2019: Australian Scott Hend prevailed in a dramatic finale to the US$3 million Maybank Championship at Saujana Golf & Country Club in Subang Jaya, Selangor, today when he came through with a playoff victory over Spain’s Nacho Elvira.

This is Hend’s third European Tour win in his 226th appearance and has appeared in every edition of the Maybank Championship since it was first played in 2016. Hend now has ten wins on the Asian Tour and topped the Order of Merit in 2016.

The top-two were level-pegged after regulation on 15-under-par 273 and that after the Spaniard, who led the Thailand-based Hend by three at the start of the last day, holed a long and daunting putt for birdie. But the 46-year-old was not to be outdone. He secured his third European Tour title with a first-hole playoff win and graciously and deservedly accepted the Tiger Trophy from KDYMM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah ibni Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Al-Musta’in Billah.

With both players on the 72nd green, tournament play was suspended for an hour and 41 minutes because of a heavy downpour. After that Elvira, who led David Lipsky two shots and Hend by three after the third round, drained that long putt to set-up the playoff.

Digging deep into his reserves of experience, Hend held his nerve when it mattered most, and sank a birdie of his own at the first playoff hole to collect the US$500,000 winner’s cheque.

Speaking at the prize presentation, Maybank Group President & Chief Executive Officer Datuk Abdul Farid Alias said: “Let me congratulate Scott (Hend) for this magnificent win.”

“Today, you have lifted the game one notch higher and truly inspired us all. We have seen how it is not just skills, but also discipline, focus and determination that make a winner. Well done!” said Datuk Abdul Farid.

Datuk Abdul Farid further elaborated that, “We are most encouraged to see how the Maybank Championship has grown to become one of the finest golfing events in this region. We have endeavoured to make it one 'Where the Best Meet' – not only through the participation of world-class golfers and our special young ASEAN invites, but also through an all-round, off the course experience, for the fans.”

Scott Hend’s brilliant fourth round left overnight leader Nacho Elvira to settle for second placing, while Jazz Janewattananond, Johannes Veerman and Oliver Fisher finished third, fourth, and fifth respectively.

Hend’s victory will forever be remembered as one of the best rounds of golf in Malaysia. He struggled a bit on the opening two days, but a third round 67 pulled him to within one stroke of the lead and set up today’s round for his biggest win yet on Saujana’s Palm “Cobra” course.

His win should move him as high as sixth place on the 2019 Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex, with 873.4 points, up from 39th. He should also climb to 133rd position in the Official World Golf Ranking, up from 253rd.

All of Hend’s European Tour wins have come in Asia. His previous titles are the 2014 Hong Kong Open and 2016 True Thailand Classic presented by Chang.

The top Malaysian in the field was Nicholas Fung, finishing tied for 15th on eight-under 280, while countryman Gavin Green finished joint 30th on five-under 283.
