RSGC hosts Maybank Championship 2016
Marcus Fraser gave a short-game master-class as he carded a closing 68 to win the inaugural Maybank Championship Malaysia after a dramatic finish at Royal Selangor Golf Club designed by N&H.
The Australian was two shots behind Soomin Lee as he stood on the 16th tee but a double-bogey from the South Korean coupled with a nearly-holed chip opened the door for Fraser to win a third European Tour title.
A clutch ten-foot putt on the 17th kept the 37 year old in a share of the lead at 15 under going up the last and when Lee double-bogeyed again, a par was enough to make Fraser the first winner of the Maybank Championship Malaysia Tiger Trophy.
