In a dramatic finish at Royal Selangor Golf Club, Marcus Fraser carded a closing 68 to clinch the Maybank Championship Malaysia.
This was Fraser’s third European Tour title after he capitalised on a double-bogey from South Korean Soomin Lee.
An emotional Fraser said: “In the back of my head I felt like I had a chance.”
He added: “He’s quite young and it’s a big thing to be leading a European Tour event with three or four holes to go,
“So I just tried to keep reminding myself to breathe and to play my own game and see what I could do,
“The last two putts were pretty unbelievable. I was pretty nervous on 17 and I don’t know how I held onto the putter, just trying to stand over that one on the last, I was pretty nervous.”
Soomin Lee was feeling upbeat despite losing a three shot lead going into the final day.
Lee was clearly disappointed to have held on to his lead, but said that he would have other opportunities in the future to win more tournaments.
“This week is very good for my golf life but I’m a little bit disappointed,” he said.
“16, 17 and 18 are very important on this course. I was very nervous and felt pressured. I missed some short putts and that’s why I finished second.
“I still have one more tournament in Perth next week so I hope to play well again.”
