Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Swede Oskar Arvidsson fired a third consecutive four-under-par 67 to claim a two-stroke victory at the PGM MIDF TPC Kuala Lumpur Championship.
It was a maiden Asian Development Tour (ADT) title and a first professional win for the 25-year-old in the RM200,000 (about US$46,600) event at the TPC Kuala Lumpur, a Golf Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Singapore’s Mitchell Slorach signed for a bogey-free 69 to secure second place, his best result on the ADT this season.
Nicholas Fung, the 2013 ADT Order of Merit champion, posted a 68 to emerge as the highest-placed Malaysian in third place on 272 while compatriot Danny Chia (68) and Indonesian George Gandranata (71) were two shots further back in equal fourth.
Having endured a lacklustre season during which he had not previously finished inside the top-10, Arvidsson was delighted to turn the corner with a winning total of 15-under 269.
“I played some great golf this week. I am really happy with my result. I was just trying to stay in the moment and play one shot at a time. It wasn’t easy out there but I am glad I got through it,” said Arvidsson, who joined the play-for-pay ranks in 2014.
Arvidsson got off to a quick start with two birdies in his opening three holes before dropping a shot on seventh to turn in 34. He nailed four more birdies on his way home and sealed the deal despite a bogey on the last.
“I got off to a good start and that helped a lot. I putted well too. This win means a lot to me. It puts me in the right direction for more successes and I hope I can keep it going into the remaining of the season,” added the Swede, who is playing in his second season on the ADT.
Arvidsson took home a cheque for US$8,721 and received six Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) points. The top six players and ties also received OWGR points based on a sliding scale.
