The new start of the season includes the CIMB Classic, which will award FedExCup Points as part of the season-long 2017 FedExCup competition, making it the first official FedExCup event on the PGA TOUR to be held in Asia.
The first PGA TOUR event will start in Southeast Asia as the top golfers in the world travel to Kuala Lumpur this year at The Mines Resort & Golf Club from October 12 - 17, 2017.
With official FedExCup points being awarded, more PGA TOUR players are expected to make the trip to Malaysia for this year’s event.
The 6th edition of the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic, Malaysia will feature 78 players, with 60 coming from the PGA TOUR, 10 from the Asian Tour and eight sponsor’s exemptions, including two Malaysians. Players will compete for increased prize money of US$7 million, as compared to US$6.1 million the year before.
The winner of this competition will also gain a two-year exemption on the PGA TOUR and lets not forget about walking away with USD1.3 million, the largest winning prize for an officially sanctioned event in Asia Pacific.
The fairways of KLGCC are situated just eight kilometers away from the heart of the city. Originally opened in 1991, the West and East Courses were completely redesigned by renowned international golf course architects E & G Parslow and re-opened in 2008 and 2010, respectively.
The course is no stranger to world-class golf, serving as the host of the European Tour and Asian Tour’s co-sanctioned Malaysian Open for the past four years, as well as the LPGA Malaysia for the past three. KLGCC has consistently been recognised as the best course in Malaysia and Asia by numerous publications for the past three consecutive years.
Today, it has become a landmark as the most luxurious golf resort development in Malaysia and KLGCC has in recent years hosted numerous international championships such as the Malaysian Open and the LPGA Malaysia.

Justin Thomas secured a back-to-back CIMB Classic title after posting a flawless eight-under-par 64 to erase a four-stroke overnight deficit in the only PGA Tour event he has ever won.
Thomas finished at 23-under overall at TPC Kuala Lumpur, three shots ahead of Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, whose final round 66 was not enough to keep up.
Both of the 23-year-old Thomas’s two PGA Tour wins have now come at the tournament in Malaysia.
He had been cruising toward the title when he dropped four shots in a disastrous three-hole stretch to start his back nine.
Thomas’s 26-under-par score en route to victory last year was the best showing yet in the tournament, which debuted in 2010.
