Maybank Championship Fantasy Preview

The Euro Tour leaves the desert and now heads to the hot and sticky Kuala Lumpur.

Hot and sticky can’t be overemphasized because comfort in this climate is a huge advantage. It doesn’t matter if you’re overweight or underweight, you just need to know how to hydrate yourself and know how the climate will effect your ball flight and yardages.

The course is Saujana G&CC in the KL. Usage dates back to before 2009 but it returned as host just last year. Personally I will be using 2009 and last year for course history, but I won’t dive any deeper than that.

Now let’s check out a few performance lists to see who might fit the course.

  1. Hey Josh,

    Thanks for all that you do. Sorry if I missed this and should know already, but are you doing the US Tour events previews? When will those start back up?

    Thanks!
    Ben
