SHAH ALAM, March 29 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has confirmed that Malaysia will host the EurAsia Cup golf tournament in 2016.
This came as Team Asia managed to provide a very exciting finish by scoring a draw with Team Europe during the final round of the tournament today.
"When I discovered that Team Asia was trailing by 5-0 on the first day, I thought it would be an uphill task for Team Asia to recover from that as so much was lost on the first day...but credit to Team Asia as they managed to recover on the second day and today, they provided a very exciting finish.
"Since this is so exciting and inconclusive (matchpoint), let me say on behalf of the government and PGM (Professional Golf of Malaysia), I confirm to you that we will host this event in two years' time and four years' time," he said at the prize-giving ceremony held at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club here.
Najib is also confident that the EurAsia Cup golf tournament would inspire many people to participate in this game, and for the game to continue to grow in Asia.....
