Persistent precision play from Pat Perez, USA, wins him the prize of the CIMB Classic trophy at TPC Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia.
Pat carded a final round -3 under 69 to totally eclipse all contestants and win the CIMB Classic with a -24 under par winning score;
“I knew I had to stay on the gas here, because guys are playing so good you can go low any day.”
“I was expecting someone to shoot sixty three or something like that.”
“I’m a different person than I was seventeen years ago. Even, like five years ago.”
“So I’m learning how to play the game. I’m learning how to play my own game and stay within myself and that kind of stuff and, like you said, I’m a late bloomer.”
“I”m not gonna change anything, I’m still not gonna work out. I’m still gonna have a bad diet. I’m going to enjoy myself.”
Four shots back was a resurgent Keegan Bradley, USA, a bogey free final round -5 under par 67 confirming his return to the top flight, with a second place finish at -20 under par.
Xander Schauffele, USA, even par 72 today, and Sung Kang, South Korea, with a last round -1 under par 71, tied in third position with -17 under par totals.
