Kuala Lumpur, 12 November 2015– Malaysian Industrial Development Finance Berhad (MIDF) has continued supporting Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) in its efforts to develop local professional golfers. MIDF started its sponsorship since 2011. This year, MIDF continues its support towards PGM and today handed over a contribution of RM400,000 in a ceremony at the headquarters.
The contribution will be utilised as prize money and for organisational expenses for the PGM MIDF KLGCC Championship which will be held from 25 – 28 November 2015 at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC).
The RM400,000 contribution was officially handed over by MIDF to PGM witnessed by MIDF Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Mahmood Taib and PGM Chairman, Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid during a presentation ceremony held at Menara MIDF in Jalan Raja Chulan.
“This is MIDF’s fifth year of involvement in PGM’s noble efforts to develop professional golf in Malaysia and we are honoured to be given the opportunity to be involved in this effort,” stated MIDF Chairman Tan Sri Dato’ Mahmood bin Taib in his speech. “MIDF will continue to support PGM achieve its goal. It is through this effort that MIDF and Malaysia is fortunate to develop local talents in this field.”
MIDF is honoured to have had a pertinent role in developing local professional golfers in the last five years. “We are happy to note that the local professional golfers continue to raise their performance and improve their positions in the world ranking. We hope that the golfers will not only be successful in the PGM events but also the Asian Development Tour,” continued Tan Sri Dato’ Mahmood.
As PGM MIDF KLGCC Championship is an Asian Development Tour event, the top 6 winners will earn world ranking points and since the event is also the final event for the ADT, the top 5 players will qualify to play in the Asian Tour events in 2016.
