The young guys have to take over. Theres a time frame for an athlete to do well. But I look at Tom Watson who nearly won the Open at the age of 59 and there were also Greg Norman and Fred Couples. If they can do it, why not me? I would like to try and give it my best shot. The young players do have the advantage but the older players have the experience. It evens out,” Jeev smiled. He welcomed the addition of the Maybank Championship Malaysia onto the Tours schedules, saying that the region was on the right path to continued growth. “Its fantastic for golf. Thanks to Maybank for putting on the championship. Theyve supported golf in Malaysia for years and its good to see a big event like this taking place. “Weve got the top players from Europe and Asia here, I think thats what we need to make this game famous in this region and give it the support and recognition that it needs for the young kids to make a living from the game. “The sponsors in Malaysia are moving in the right direction to make sure the game grows. Golf in Asia is going to grow in the next few years,” he said. PTI AH AHadvertisementlast_img read more
