Stars Tip Green Set To Sparkle


Gavin Kyle Green

24 June 2013: Malaysiaís Gavin Green left many of the Asian Tourís established stars in awe of his talent after he held his own to finish tied-sixth at the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters over the weekend.

At only 19 years of age, the Malaysian amateur showed he can match up against the regionís best players when he spearheaded the home charge since day one and upstaged several of the Tourís marquee names after four days of intense competition.

Thailandís Pariya Junhasavasdikul, who completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters, hailed Green as the next hope for Asian golf after witnessing the Malaysianís class act at the Seri Selangor Golf Club.

ďIn two to three years, I wonít be able to match up with him (Green). I told him to starting buying a house in the United States after his tee shot on the par five fifth green where he had a sand wedge into the green. I told him that he is looking at PGA Tour right now. Thereís no such thing as stepping stone for him. He will be on the PGA Tour quicker than he thinks,Ē said the 29-year-old Thai.

Australiaís Scott Hend, a three-time winner on the regionís premier Tour, played alongside Green in the opening two rounds and was impressed with the Malaysian who was bidding to become only the fourth amateur to win on the Asian Tour last week.

ďHeís a good player. When I first saw him, he played golf on Thursday and Friday like how I do on Saturday and Sunday. Heís very aggressive. I guess heís got nothing to lose at the moment and all to gain. He goes for his shots like a 19 year old should. Heís got a bright future. Heís a good ball striker, hits it very long,Ē said Hend.

Hend, however believes Green will need to adapt to the short putter when the anchoring ban is enforced in 2016.

ďI donít know what heís going to do with the belly putter. Heís got a good swing and it seems to have a lot of good things going for him. Heís very young and he just needs to learn to use the short putter,Ē said the Australian.

The University of New Mexico undergraduate, who is back in Malaysia for the summer holidays, believes he will be back in contention as he ended his campaign the way he started by epitomising the true spirit of golf.

ďIíve got to try to play better when I make the cut. I played well all week. I canít complain about that. Iíve got to practice more, practice more, especially on the short game. But Iím getting close to them (the pros). Itís a good experience,Ē said Green, who earned plaudits for calling a penalty on himself when his ball moved on the 11th green to earn a one-stroke penalty on Sunday.
