Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia Development Programme
Sixteen of Malaysia’s brightest young stars are looking to graduate in style as they target a coveted spot at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia.

Kuala Lumpur, 18 September 2017: One of the most advanced golf training programmes in Asia will culminate at TPC Kuala Lumpur on 19 – 20 September, as Malaysia’s top amateur female golfers compete for a prestigious berth at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia.

The National Qualifying event marks a fitting finale for stage two of the tournament’s acclaimed Development Programme, which over the past five weeks has seen Malaysia’s budding young golfers harness their skills under the tutelage of internationally recognised instructors, including revered LPGA coach Ian Triggs.

“The girls have been given an unbelievable opportunity,” said Dr Nicky Lumb, a UK-based golf performance specialist who utilised her extensive experience to help guide the players in effective practice techniques.

“It is an impressive programme with fantastic facilities and great coaches who are eager to help develop the female game in Malaysia. There are some very young girls here but they have a lot of talent. If they can keep focused and working hard, there’s no reason they can’t have very exciting futures,” she said.

Now in its 8th year, the innovative scheme has already paved the way for six aspiring golfers to achieve their dream of turning professional, and played a pivotal role in the development of the country’s top-ranked female players, Kelly Tan and Michelle Koh, who in 2016 made history by becoming the first female Malaysian golfers to participate in the Olympic Games.

This year’s participants are hoping to follow in the footsteps of their idols, and after completing part one of the programme, which provided twenty talented Malaysian players with a “home club” environment and access to the fantastic facilities at TPC Kuala Lumpur, the players descended on the MST Golf Academy for a packed schedule of intensive preparation.

Designed to give the participants an unparalleled insight into the world of elite sport, the scheme left no stone unturned, as it delved far beyond swing techniques to incorporate fitness training, course management, nutrition, as well as a myriad of other vital but overlooked elements necessary to excel at the highest level, all developed under the watchful eye of some of golf’s leading coaching authorities.

The players were given the most comprehensive of introductions to the professional game. The Star’s Golf Editor, Shaun Orange, tutored the players on how best to deal with the media; rules guru, KH Wan, gave a vital talk on conduct in professional tournament play; and life coach, Christine Vaz, demonstrated the intrinsic link between feeling good off the course and playing well on it.

Australian professional Stewart Ginn, a former major winner on the senior circuit, was also on hand to bestow the knowledge he has acquired from winning on a tour in every continent. The advice from inside the ropes will undoubtedly be invaluable for the players who make it through this week’s qualifying event, as they prepare to tee up alongside the likes of defending champion Shanshan Feng, and Thailand’s first ever major winner Ariya Jutanugarn.

Personal development, both on and off the course, was high on the agenda, with the Sime Darby Foundation eager to ensure that the golfers are given a stable footing to pursue their future careers.

The Sime Darby LPGA Development Programme is an integral part of the US$ 1.8 million purse Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia, set to return to TPC Kuala Lumpur from 26 – 29 October 2017, with 55 players aged between 10 and 26 having now graduated through the scheme.
