KUALA LUMPUR: Over 100 young golfers had the opportunity to learn from Asia's top stars at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club recently.
The juniors, aged between five and 16, attended a special golf clinic held in conjunction with last week's Maybank Malaysian Open.
They were given pointers by professionals Danny Chia, Thongchai Jaidee and Pariya Junhasavasdikul on putting, chipping and bunker training.
It was indeed a memorable occasion for the youngsters to meet the golf aces in person and pick up tips on improving their game.
The young golfers were all ears as the professionals shared their extensive knowledge of the game with them.
The Asian Tour stars also autographed caps and posed for photos with the juniors.
Mohd Azfar Anwar, a 16-year-old student from SMK Sungai Ara, Penang, came for the clinic.
Azfar, an enthusiastic young golfer since the age of nine, has represented Penang in national tournaments in the last three years.
SMK Sungai Ara is one of the schools adopted by the Maybank Foundation under its partnership with Pintar Foundation.
The two-hour clinic with the tour professionals proved to be a great success, and the youngsters also had a chance to learn a trick or two from the trick master himself - David Edwards.
A former European PGA tour player himself, Edwards has appeared in over 50 countries. His mind boggling shots and demonstrations of hand-eye coordination got the juniors at the clinic excited and inspired.
