NOTES:The PGA Tour travels to Malaysia this week for the CIMB Classic at
Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. Four of the top 25 players in the world are competing this week -- Sergio Garcia (4), Billy Horschel (13), Hideki Matsuyama (21) and Patrick Reed (25). This is the second year that the tournament is an official PGA Tour event.

The 2010 tournament was the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event to be held in Southeast Asia. There are only 78 players in the field with no cut. They are competing for a $7 million prize purse, with the winner receiving $1,260,000.

The tournament is being played at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, which was designed by Neil Haworth and opened in 1991. It was redesigned by Parslow & Parslow in 2008. The course hosted the Maybank Malaysian Open on the European Tour in March. Lee Westwood captured that title, and is also in the field this week.

Last year, Ryan Moore birdied the first playoff hole to defeat Gary Woodland and win his third PGA Tour title. Moore and Woodland finished at 14-under-par 274. Moore fired a course-record 63 in the opening round.

In 2012, Nick Watney fired a course-record, 10-under 61 in the final round to rally and win. Watney finished at 22-under-par 262. The victory was unofficial, but was his sixth on the PGA Tour.

In 2011, Bo Van Pelt closed with an impressive 7-under 64 and cruised to a 6-stroke victory over Jeff Overton. It was Van Pelt's second career victory and first since the 2009 U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, and he did it by going bogey-free over the tournament's last 34 holes to finish at a tournament-record 23-under 261.

Ben Crane birdied the final hole to win by one stroke over Brian Davis in 2010. Crane finished at 18-under-par 266, as he fired four rounds in the 60s and held at least a share of the lead after 36, 54, and 72 holes.

Next week, the top players in the world head to China for the WGC-HSBC Champions, where Dustin Johnson won the 2013 title. The PGA Tour is also in Mississippi for the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, where Woody Austin won last year.
