The ace came on the fourth hole, a par three, at the latest stop of the PGA Tour in Malaysia.

Q: What have you enjoyed about Malaysia in the last few years and will this year be different coming back as defending champion? All three are in the field this week. Other short odds to win are Billy Horschel (14/1), Ryan Moore (14/1), Paul Casey (16/1) and Xander Schauffele (16/1).

In just three starts on the Chinese tour, Voke is third on the order or merit and with two tournaments left in the schedule, is almost assured a place on the Web.Com Tour next year in the US.

The Indian star has led on the Habitat for Humanity Standings 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.

Numerous players in Malaysia have shared photos on social media of the weather conditions in the Far East.

Thomas won the tour money title this year with $8,694,821, the first back-to-back victor of the award since Tiger Woods in 2006 and 2007. Sharma, a two-time Asian Tour victor, now leads the Habitat for Humanity Standings with a season's haul of $608,494.

He likes his chances of beating 2017 champion Pat Perez, Brandt Snedeker, Keegan Bradley and 2013 and 2014 victor Ryan Moore, who are among the starters in the CIMB field this week. Twenty years later, I hold a PGA Tour card.

Perez: I think it's just been okay. Winning the Order of Merit is something I want to achieve by December and playing well here goes a long way to achieve that. "That will be number one goal for now". I've played so well on this course and have a good record over here. I feel like I can win on a given day when I'm playing really well. "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.

Being a father certainly changes your perspective somewhat and the good thing now, I guess, is when I have an ordinary week on TOUR, it really won't matter too much when I know I have another great reason to be happy with the new addition to our family.

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

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.
