Ben Ready to Strike at Maybank Championship

Malaysia’s Ben Leong is riding high on confidence ahead of the US$3 million Maybank Championship, which starts today.

The 32-year-old safely made the weekend rounds in Singapore and Myanmar in his last two tournaments and aims to build on his good start at the Saujana Golf and Country Club.

Leong, who holds one Asian Tour victory where he famously defeated Thongchai Jaidee at the 2008 Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters on home soil, plans to adopt a relaxed approach this year.

He admits that he has been struggling with his golf swing but hopes to bounce back and make an impact in front of the home crowd at the Maybank Championship where he finished tied-12th last year.

Leong will be among 15 Malaysians in the elite field this week which includes Gavin Green, the reigning Asian Tour number one and Maybank ambassador, Nicholas Fung, Danny Chia, Arie Irawan and Sukree 0thman.
