Women’s golfers feeling buoyant this time
THE Malaysian women’s golf team have a strong feeling that they are going to do better than the last Sea Games.
In 2015 in Singapore, they missed out on the bronze by a shot.
Thanks to thier extensive preparation, the women are now in an optimistic mood.
Loy Hee Ying, 20, expects the KL Sea Games to be a happy hunting ground for the team, who have been practising since January under coach and team manager, Lim Ai Lin.
“The preparations this year is better than the previous Sea Games, so we’re hoping for better results,” said Hee Ying, who has been playing golf in the United States for the past two years as a student-athlete at East Tennessee State University.
She reckons her exposure there will greatly contribute to Malaysia achieving good results this year.
“I’ve improved in the past two years because of different exposure
“I could say that I am better for Sea Games and because we get to play on the course (the Mines Resort and Golf Club), it’s definitely going to give us an advantage over other players.”
Hee Ying was present during the Malaysian Golf Association’s announcement of sponsorship by Srixon Sports Asia Sdn Bhd in providing equipment yesterday for the Sea Games golf squad.
The golfers for the Games are (men and women): Chan Tuck Soon, Ervin Chang, Galven Kendall Green, Danial Durisic, Nur Durriyah Damian, Hee Ying and Ashley Lau. Farah Azharie
