Top Malaysian Golfer Gavin Stumbles in Saudi


Gavin Green, the top Malaysian golfer had a disappointing campaign at the Saudi International competition. The 3-week ‘Desert Swing’ tournament saw Gavin finishing in joint-95th. It has been a challenging period, especially with the global pandemic causing disruptions to golf tournaments and events across the world.

Not at his best

Gavin played to a 72 at the par-70 Royal Greens Golf and Country Club with a total of three-over 143 and missed by 3 shots. He dropped 2 points with bogeys at the 7th and 16th holes with no birdies to show. In 3 starts, this would be the second one he missed. Before this, he did not make it during the Abu Dhabi Championship weekend some 2 weeks ago where he finished a dismal 71st.

Perhaps it was the pandemic but this is a far cry from his achievements at the ‘Desert Swing’ in 2020. Then, he finished tied-third at the Saudi International where he entered the competition joint-21st and joint-27th at the Abu Dhabi Championship and Dubai Desert Classic respectively.

Good 2020 for Gavin

After the successful early periods last year, he ended the season at 52nd place in the Race to Dubai rankings. That would be his career-best as well. He was the Asian Tour of Merit champion in 2017 and has vowed to work on his techniques to mount a better challenge when he returns for the Qatar Masters this coming March 11 to 14 in Doha. After that, he is most likely to be playing at the Kenya Open from March 18.
