KUALA LUMPUR: Asian No 1 Gavin Green is feeling confident ahead of his debut outing in the World Golf Championships (WGC)-Mexico Championship on March 1-4.
The Malaysian hopes to take advantage of the rare opportunity playing against leading golfers at the Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City as he aims to use the US$10million (RM39million) tournament as a stepping stone for better things.
The 24-year-old is oozing with confidence since topping the Asian Order of Merit last month.
He wants to continue his fine form and take the next step in the sport as he eyes PGA Tour qualification one day.
“WGC tournaments are big as the best golfers are playing in them. I know what to expect and I am ready,’ said Gavin, who finished joint-eighth in the just-concluded Singapore Open.
Gavin, who works with swing coach Chris O’Connell, said: “It will be a new experience in Mexico City. I have only heard good things about the event and I hope to do good.”
The tournament is expected to attract the top 50 golfers.
