The PGA Tour heads to TPC Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia this week for the CIMB Classic. Pat Perez is the defending champion, but Justin Thomas and Ryan Moore – who lost in a playoff last week at the Safeway Open – have each won this event twice since it became an official PGA Tour stop in 2013. Perez, meanwhile, has just one top-25 finish since the WGC-Mexico Championship.
TPC Kuala Lumpur isn’t the toughest of golf courses, ranking 41st out of 51 course used last season on Tour. Low scores mean fantasy golf gamers need to pick guys who aren’t afraid to go low. ShotLink isn’t used this week, but statistically, it’s safe to go with players who putt well, give themselves plenty of wedge opportunities and rank highly in birdie average, both overall and on par 5s, as the par-72 TPC Kuala Lumpur has four of them.
