Korean Youngsters Face Tough Test at the Panasonic Open in Malaysia

A week after the much acclaimed Maybank Malaysian Championship, comes the Panasonic Open Malaysia, which features a group of players associated with the Professional Golf of Malaysia Tour, as well as the Asian Development Tour. 

Amongst the field are four young Korean prospects, who all competed in the Asian Tour Q-school, last month. Youngjea Byun, who will also play a full KPGA Tour this year, is likely to be the main Korean challenger this week, in a field that features some very experienced Asian Tour players, as well as former winners on the Asian Development Tour. Along with Byun, Sang Pil Yoon, Chanwoo Kim and Junhyuk Lee will all be hoping for a positive week at the Kuala Lumpur based course.

The Kelab Rahman Putra golf course is regarded as one of the toughest tests in Malaysia, so it is expected to produce some high scores, especially if the inexperienced players in the field fail to remain patient throughout their round.

The first round begins on Wednesday and wraps up on Saturday.
