Gavin will be here for Maybank Malaysian Open in February 2014

Malaysia’s top leading amateur Gavin Kyle Green today confirmed that he will be coming home for the upcoming Maybank Malaysian Open in February 2015. It will be Green’s fourth attempt at the coveted trophy and could possibly be his last time playing to an amateur status on the co-sanctioned European Tour and Asian Tour event.

“We’ll see how it goes,” when asked what will be his next step in his golfing career after graduating next year.

Last month, Green became the first collegiate golfer to pick up three consecutive William H Tucker titles, making this his 6th individual title with University of New Mexico (UNM), USA - the most ever recorded.

Green credits his exposure to the game at a professional level through the European and Asian Tour’s co-sanctioned Maybank Malaysian Open in years past for his achievements to date.

In 2013, Green topped Malaysian professionals to finish joint 22nd, his best finishing in three participations and the best by a Malaysian. To further enhance his skills for the 54th edition of the Maybank Malaysian Open, Green will be competing at three more tournaments before heading home.

“The Maybank Malaysian Open has given me plenty of opportunities to play alongside international stars and I have learned a lot from all the golfing greats. Participating in a world-class event like the Maybank Malaysian Open over the past few years has helped me better prepare myself for tournaments in my collegiate career. The experience, training and mental conditioning will be priceless in years to come as I aim to help the team get into the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Men’s National Golf Championships and hopefully win the championship this year. That would be awesome,” said Green.
