Kiradech aims for fast PGA Tour start

Justin Thomas tees off on the 14th hole during the first round of the Northern Trust golf tournamen

The 25-year old major victor picked up another accolade on Tuesday after winning the PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Award for the most prize money on tour in 2017/18 with $8,694,821 - the second year in a row he has claimed it.

Perez won here past year after a birdie blitz saw him finish on 24-under par, while Moore, himself a double champion in KL (2013, 2014), is coming off a T2 finish at last week's Safeway Open, where he lost out in a three-way play-off to Kevin Tway.

So who wins the 2018 CIMB Classic?

Other top contenders include Xander Schauffele, Paul Casey, Billy Horschel, Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker and Kevin Tway, who won the Safeway Open last week.

The PGA TOUR-sanctioned event features a limited field of 78 players comprising of the top 60 available players from the 2017-18 FedExCup points list, eight sponsor exemptions and the top-10 available players from the Asian Tour.

Q: The 2018 CIMB Classic (Oct 11-14) will be your first tournament as a father.

He also won the Malaysian Open on the same golf course in 2015, his first win on the European Tour. "I thought I'd be comfortably in because in the previous years, it had gone down way past 100th in the FedEx Cup standing", said the world No. 119. Sharma, a two-time Asian Tour victor, now leads the Habitat for Humanity Standings with a season's haul of $608,494. Fiji International champion Bhullar has been in good form and he made a decision to take a week's break before the CIMB Classic. I feel like I can win on a given day when I'm playing really well. Twenty years later, I hold a PGA Tour card. I've been quite consistent with my play, but I didn't have enough good finishes on the board, after the win at the CIMB Classic. That will be the number one goal for now.

"We have a really good chance here and if I play well, in golf, anything is possible. The green is firmer and faster and there is lot of slope on the greens and I'm sure you're going to hole less putts", said Kiradech. "I think it's just about getting in one good round and when that happens I think I'll get confidence back and I'll be back at it again".

I've also adapted really well on the greens and rolled in a bunch of putts to win previous year.

While Kiradech has his PGA TOUR card in hand for the 2018-19 Season, India's Shubhankar Sharma, who is in the field as one of the top-10 players from the Asian Tour, is eager to get his way to the world's premier circuit.
