IPOH, Perak – After a phenomenal third round of 6-under-par 66, Cory Crawford of Australia breezed through in the final round of the 112th Malaysian Amateur Open to clinch the title. His final-round 74 gave him a tournament total 6-under-par 282 and a 3-stroke victory.

Conducted by the Malaysian Golf Association, the 112th Malaysian Amateur Open at Ipoh, Perak was a 72-hole stroke play event played on the par-72, 6,376-metre Course at Royal Perak Golf Club. The 105-player field featured players from Australia (3), Bahrain (4), Bangladesh (1), China (2), Hong Kong (1), Indonesia (3), India (4), Philippines (1), Singapore (10), Thailand (2), Taiwan (9), UK (2), Japan (1), Korea (3), Myanmar (1), Nepal (2) and Malaysia (56). In all, 16 foreign countries are represented.

The tournament, began in 1894 at Penang Golf Club is one of the oldest amateur events in the world. That consistency has helped create a tournament steeped in tradition and has helped produced many champions who have graduated to paid rank like Robert Allenby, Stephen Leaney, Mardan Mamat, Tongchai Jaidee and Mike Campbell to name a few.

Cory Crawford carded 2 birdies; 1 on each nine and 4 bogeys en route to victory. Crawford was the favorite to win the Championship after carding 6-under-par 66 on Saturday with a comfortable 5 stroke lead.

“My short game was really good all week,” he said. “My game feels really good right now. I'm just going to try and keep it up and get ready for the next tournament.”

“I hope I can continue playing well in Saujana,” Crawford explained. “To be able to win back to back would be awesome.”

Marc Ong of Singapore played relatively well today at 1-over-par 73 to settle for second place with tournament total of 3-under-par 285.

“It was a tough day,” Marc Ong said. “I was trying to catch up and go after him but I was running out of holes.”

“We are going to meet again at Saujana. I hope I can play better at the Saujana Amateur Championship.”

Zihao Chen of China surged up the leaderboard to finish tied third after carding a superb 4-under-par 68 for 2-under-par 286 tournament total. He shared the position with Jarryd Felton of Australia who carded 72, 72, 70, 72.

Muhammad Wafiyuddin who played superbly well on second and third round, carded 4-over-par 76 to finish 5th with 1-over-par 289 tournament total.

“I am not happy with my performance today,” the 23-year-old said. “I was unable to convert my pars.”

“I am going to train harder for the World Inter-Varsity Games in Switzerland this June,” Wafiyuddin said. “I will play alongside Gavin, Tuck Soon and Afif and I hope we can finish in the top 3.”

Low Khai Jei who finished 2-over-par 290 and Solomon Emilio who carded 3-over-par 291 were the other two Malaysians who finished in the top 10.
