Danny Lee sinks hole-in-one at PGA Tour CIMB Classic

When I was a kid, my goal has been to be a part of the PGA TOUR.

Justin Thomas returns this week to the scene of his first PGA Tour win in 2015, and where he repeated as champion a year later.

Smith finished last season with seven top-10 finishes, including back-to-back top-five finishes at the first two FedEx Cup Playoff events, the Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship. All three are in the field this week.

So who wins the 2018 CIMB Classic? In 2017, Pat Perez shot 24-under 264 to win by four shots over Keegan Bradley and finish seven shots ahead of Sung Kang and the reigning Rookie of the Year, Xander Schauffele.

Now the American, fresh from winning the PGA Tour money title for the second consecutive year, begins play Thursday in the CIMB Classic aiming for his third win in four years at the tournament, and his 10th on tour.

The Indian star has been in the lead since winning in Malaysia in February but he has Sanghyun Park of Korea, who has won twice on the Asian Tour, breathing down his neck. I've been playing Malaysia Open many times, especially on this course I'm playing so well and have a good record over here. "It's the biggest tour in the world", the 29-year-old Thai said. Sharma, a two-time Asian Tour victor, now leads the Habitat for Humanity Standings with a season's haul of $608,494.

They will be joined by the leading available 10 players on the Habitat for Humanity Standings which include Gaganjeet Bhullar, a nine-time Asian Tour victor, Justin Harding of South Africa and last week's champion John Catlin of the United States.

"Twenty years later, I hold a Tour card".

I'm looking forward to defending my title and seeing my fans there again. "I think I've got enough experience to playing against the world-class players to do so". "That will be number one goal for now". I can't explain how it feels but it is such a good moment for me.

Perez: As golfers, sometimes you just like a golf course the minute you set eyes on it. TPC KL is one of those golf courses where I feel comfortable standing on the tee boxes and seeing what's in front of me. I have my coach here this week and even he's really happy with the way I'm hitting it, and I hit it pretty good today as well.

"Not having my best stuff and getting around here in 6-under is huge".
