PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship 2015




PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship 2015 winner Arie Irawan

Arie Irawan

Malaysia's rising talent Arie Irawan captures maiden ADT Tour win and his second PGM Tour title. With a total score of 18-under 270 which included a trail-blazing 63 on the first day, Arie seized the win from overnight leader and fellow Malaysian Sukree Othman by a single stroke.
"This was a tough tournament to win as the field was very strong and we all know any of the 20-25 top players have a chance of winning it. 
The first day was really great. And then in the second round I was just happy to play under-par as I didn't get many good breaks - but it was still good. On the third day I just tried to stay focused and I did. I was only one shot off the lead coming into today's fourth round and I knew I had to play steady, controlled golf if I was to get a chance of winning."

Arie remarked that he would now turn his attention to playing well at the upcoming Maybank Malaysian Open at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.
"That is our national Open so all of us in it will be trying to do our best. It will not be easy as it's a tournament run by the Asian Tour and The European Tour. But it should also be a good experience and one that we can learn from."

Sukree Othman snatches third round lead

Sukree Othman grabs third round lead after firing a 66. The 39-year old Malaysian said tomorrow he'll be keeping his eyes on his own game and "playing against the course" and not watch how other players are doing. Sukree noted that the course was dry and so gives good opportunities for short hitters.

Arie Irawan in contention

Arie Irawan who held the lead for the past two rounds, carded a 68 and dropped to second position, just one-stroke off the lead.
Reflecting on his bogey-free round, Arie remarked, "The guy who’s mentally the toughest will win. I played my best, stayed patient and I’m delighted I managed to keep the bogeys off my card today. It’s going to be a tight race to the finishing line tomorrow and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

Kemerol Baharin cards a 64 jumping up from 14th position to 3rd

Fellow Malaysian Kemerol Baharin posted the low round for the day with 64, thereby putting Malaysians in the top-three spots on the leader-board.



Arie Irawan

Arie Irawan clings to lead. The 24-year old carded a one-under-par 71, leaving him with a slender one-stroke lead over south African Mathiam Keyser and Swede Oskar Arvidsson, Malaysian Sukree Othman and American Rob Siebly.
"I'll take an under-par round today. I obviously did not play as well as I did yesterday, but I'm still happy with where I am at the tournament," said Arie after his round.
I got into trouble a few times and should have been able to rescue the situation, but I didn't" Arie added, referring to his three bogeys in his first eight holes. However, his bogey-free second nine which included three birdies considerably improved the situation, enabling him to finish with an under-par round.

Lying in a four-way tie at second place is Mathiam Keyser from South Africa, Sweden's Oskar Arvidsson, American Rob Siebly and and Malaysia's Sukree Othman. Keyser and Othman carded 65s and Arvidsson 66.
Brett Munson

The low round for the day was from American Brett Munson with a 64 which included an eagle. Brett Munson earned his Asian Tour card by way of his fifth placing in last year's ADT Order Of Merit (OOM).
"Everything went smoothly today. I hit very good wedge shots into the greens and gave myself good chances at birdie. Most of them were inside 10 feet and a couple were tap-ins," said Brett reflecting on his round.



Malaysia's Arie Irawan tore up the course with a phenomenal 63 in the opening round of the PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship 2015

Malaysia's rising talent Arie Irawan tore up the course with a phenomenal nine-under-par 63 at the RM 200,000 PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship 2015 in Kedah.
"I played very well today and maybe should have finished with a round of 60 or even 59. I missed three or four short putts, yet drained the longer ones. But overall, I am very happy with how I started here today. I played well in Sabah last week but couldn't convert the putts, whereas today it was different and managed to hole a few." said 24-year old Arie, who turned pro a little over a year ago.

American Rob Seibly got off to a firing start in his debut PGM Tour event, carding a 65 to settle for sole second position, two-shots off the lead.
"I hit the ball well and putted well too. I played the Asian Tour Qualifying school and unfortunately did not make the grade, so I'll try to earn a playing card by finishing in the top-five of the Asian Tour Order of Merit (OOM). And with a start like this, I'm really pleased and hope to build on it", said Rob. The 25-year old who turned pro three years ago plans to spend the rest of the season in Southeast Asia.

One stroke behind Rob and three-strokes off the lead is Terumichi Kakazu from Japan. His father is his coach and is a teaching pro in Japan.

Malaysia's Airil Rizman Zahari and Finland's Janne Kaske are in joint fourth position.

Kenneth De Silva

Overnight leader Kenneth De Silva clinches his second Tour title at the PGM Kinrara Closed Championship 2015 with a score of 10-under 274.
"I'm very happy to have won again. I have been playing quite well since the middle of the season, but I just couldn't get there in the end. However, today I managed it and feel relieved to have done it. Winning on the PGM Tour is not easy, so to have two victories, I think is good" said the 24-year old who collected a RM 30,000 winner's paycheck.

Sukree Othman who descended from the halfway lead to 6th position yesterday, fired back with a 66 and charged up to joint 2nd place with R. Nachimuthu just one stroke away from the title. After shooting sub-par rounds of 65 and 70 the first two days, Othman carded a 2-over 74 yesterday, and was left to rue his missed chance.
"I played well again today (similar to the first day) but yesterday was where it slipped away," he said. "I could not putt, yet today the putts went it, and I might have been better today, had I sunk two other make-able ones. I also hit the ball well," said the 37-year old.

The low rounds for the day with a score of 66 came from Sukree Othman and Nicholas Fung.

Danial Durisic overtook Low Khai Jei to be the leading amateur of the tournament by one stroke.

Slow yet steady, Galven Green climbed his way up to 27th position after carding a 2-under 70 for the final round.

Round 3 Results

Kenneth De Silva seizes a 2-stroke lead after the 3rd round of the RM 180,000 PGM Kinrara Closed Championship.

Overnight leader Sukree Othman faltered with a 74 to drop to 6th place, 5 strokes off the lead.

R. Nachimithu and Mohd Amli carded the low-rounds of the day with a 66 and with it Nachimuthu charged up the leader-board to joint-second place along with Shaaban Hussin (69). Good recovery by Mohd Amli who shot a 74 yesterday. Amli, who is seeking his first Tour victory, credited his putter for his quick turnaround.

"I played well today and everything I went for, went in. But maybe the putter was the main difference, after I changed it overnight.
I used an old Ping putter today and it was really hot. I sunk a few good putts for birdie, but I also hit my iron shots well too," said the 30-year old, who turned pro in 2010.

Hans Jamil carded a 68 to climb up to 4th position, 3 strokes off the lead.

Gavin Green recovers from yesterday's 76 with a 2-under 70 for today's round. Low Khai Jei still the leading amateur.

Sukree Othman still holding on to a 1-stroke lead, while Kenneth De Silva clings onto second place.

Shaaban Hussin claws his way up from 6th position to 3rd.

Low Khai Jei still the leading amateur.

Young amateur Galven Green narrowly makes the cut.




Round 1 Results

Veteran Sukree Othman fires a 65 to take a delicate 1-stroke lead. Kenneth De Silva and Abel Tam follow closely behind.

Low Khai Jei currently leads the amateur pack with a commendable -2 vying for a share of 6th place.

Malaysia's top amateur Gavin Green's little brother Galven Green makes a decent start with a +2 to sit at 36th position.
