The Call­away Cham­pi­onship 2017

A fun filled and ex­cit­ing tour­na­ment with prizes ga­lore

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

The first leg of the Call­away Cham­pi­onship this year teed off to an awe­some start at the Sul­tan Ab­dul Aziz Shah Golf & Coun­try Club (SAASGCC). This event, which is in its sec­ond year run­ning, is one of the most awaited golf­ing events on the ama­teur golf­ing cal­en­dar. Call­away Golf Malaysia through Leo­nian Sin­ga­pore, the brand’s ex­clu­sive dis­trib­u­tor for South East Asia, have out­done them­selves with a fully sub­scribed Cham­pi­onship that has a long wait­ing list of par­tic­i­pants as well.

“We are truly over­whelmed by the sup­port from our brand loy­al­ists, who with­out fail al­ways turn up in full force when­ever we hold Call­away events, be it a new prod­uct launch or demo days at a golf club here in Malaysia. We are in­deed blessed to have such great sup­port­ers, and in line with such over­whelm­ing re­sponse, we will be hav­ing an ad­di­tional leg in East Malaysia some time later this quar­ter on top of the other hap­pen­ing at Hori­zon Hills Golf & Coun­try Club in

Novem­ber,” said Kevin Yeap, Coun­try Man­ager of Call­away Golf Malaysia.

Par­tic­i­pants of the Call­away Cham­pi­onship at SAASGCC were also greeted with a spe­cial Odyssey Put­ter Fit­ting ses­sion at the prac­tice green that af­ter­noon. Par­tic­i­pants got to test and were fit­ted with the lat­est rev­o­lu­tion­ary Mi­cro­hinge in­sert tech­nol­ogy of the 2017 O-Works range of put­ters and on top of that, Call­away’s lat­est GBB EPIC range were also avail­able for a test drive.

Great prizes awaited those who played well, and the winners took away the lat­est Call­away GBB Epic range of equip­ment and Odyssey put­ters.

The Cham­pi­onship was based on the Sta­ble­ford Sys­tem 36 for­mat, with the top 5 winners from the A-Medal and top 4 winners from the B-Medal cat­e­gory re­ceiv­ing the at­trac­tive prizes.

The A-Medal cat­e­gory saw Lam

Kong Foo (hand­i­cap 7) clinch­ing the Cham­pi­onship ti­tle for the cat­e­gory with 41 points. Com­ing in sec­ond was Al­lan Yap (hand­i­cap 9) at 39 points win­ning on count back over Lee Pak Hong (hand­i­cap 10), fol­lowed by Eric Foo (hand­i­cap 7) at 38 points win­ning on count back for forth place over Idza­ud­din Bin Idrus (hand­i­cap 7).

The B-Medal cat­e­gory was a very close bat­tle, with Chen Ka Kim (hand­i­cap 20) tak­ing home the cat­e­gory Cham­pion ti­tle with 37 points on count back, nar­rowly edg­ing out Lam FM (hand­i­cap 20), Alex Yau Wai Heng (hand­i­cap 20), Lim Boon Kiat (hand­i­cap 21) and Charles Wong (hand­i­cap 21) who were all at 37 points as well!

One of the high­lights of the event was the ea­gerly awaited grand lucky draw, where Richard Lim Yeow

Ling won for him­self a Call­away XR Steel­head iron set and Ab­dul Muhaymin Ab­dul­lah be­came the new owner of a Call­away EPIC Driver.
