GREATNESS  COMES TO SELF GRINDERS  WITH INBORN TALENT. PROPELLED BY DETERMINATION DARED AND DONE-

He - LOW KHAI JEI - is tiny in size. No evident muscles for long hitting. All he had was enjoy the hit, the moment and all came right, it is a simple way of playing golf and the best way of playing golf rather than filling your insides with so many must-dos and must-not-dos. Just play man. If you have, you will get get, if you do not have, grind your self to be better.  As an amateur he was not burdened with thoughts of the prize money too- MIND WAS EMPTY - WAS READY JUST TO ENJOY.

This is all about getting the short game, right not thinking about the past nor the future. Just play and enjoy the moment.
Thus, special, complicated mental training is not needed. Just play to enjoy the moment and allow what is inside come out fluidly.



Showing the composure of a seasoned pro, top-ranked amateur player Low Khai Jei held his nerve to shoot a fourth and final round three-under 69 and win the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s Orna Closed Championship in Melaka today.

The 19-year-old, who finished in a tie for third at the PGM Northport Glenmarie Championship two weeks ago, an event co-sanctioned with the Asian Development Tour, secured his maiden Tour victory after finishing 14-under 274 at Orna Golf & Country Club this afternoon.

Starting the day with a three-stroke cushion over Nicholas Fung, Khai Jei was flawless over the first nine as he made the turn in three-under. After the 10th hole he was six shot clear of Fung. Indeed, the young man, who was in the tournament on merit, having earned his Tour card earlier in the season, had a back nine that was characterized by a disciplined even-par 36, picking up a birdie at the 16thhole and then giving the shot right back on the next.

Beaming with delight, the Taiping teenager said of his win: “It feels unbelievable. I’m very, very happy to have won on the PGM Tour here today.

“The competition in these events is stiff as there are many good players. But today I made sure that I tried to play my game without watching the others,” he added, to playing in the championship group with Fung and Khor Kheng Hwai. “I had three birdies and pars through the first nine and that settled my nerves. I believed that I could do it. And after I birdied the 16th hole, the bogey at the next did not worry me as I had a good lead with one hole to go.”

PGM Tour chairman, Tun Ahmad Sarji Abd Hamid, said they were pleased to see that their efforts of trying to help develop Malaysian golf were bearing fruit.

“We have an arrangement with the Malaysian Golf Association for them to send their National team to our Tour events, with a view to giving their players a chance to develop their game on Tour. And today’s result shows that it is good for golf in this country.”

Fung shot a 71 that left him on nine-under 279. He picked up what would have been the winner’s cheque RM30,600, given that Khai Jei as an amateur is not eligible to pocket the cash.

Ben Leong’s 70 propelled him to third place on seven-under 281, for which he collected RM20,340. Meanwhile, Khor had a 73 and finished on 282 – a massive eight strokes behind the winner in fourth place.

Wilson Choo carded a 73 for a 283 total and fifth spot, while Shaifubari Muda (71) and Mohd Amli (73) were tied for sixth, another shot back on four-under 284.

Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s Orna Closed Championship in Melaka

Amateur Khai Jei leads after third round at Orna


Little Low Khai Mighty- Golf


The country’s top-ranked amateur player Low Khai Jei fired an impressive six-under 66 to take the outright lead of the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s Orna Closed Championship in Melaka today.

The 19-year-old, who already has a tie for third on the Tour, yet says he is in no hurry to turn pro, moved to 11-under 205 after the third round at Orna Golf & Country Club.

Leaving seasoned pros in his wake, Khai Jei admitted that he was “a bit nervous” about leading the RM180,000 event with a day to go. “I haven’t been in a situation like this before (in a pro tournament) so I am a bit nervous,” he said. “But I will try to just play my normal game tomorrow and see what happens.”

Khai Jei’s six-under round came courtesy of an even-par first nine, followed by a birdie blitz over the homeward stretch, during which he was flawless and strung together five straight birdies from Holes 10-14, before adding another at the 17th hole.

Khai Jei’s effort left him three shots clear of overnight leader Nicholas Fung, with whom he will play in the last grouptomorrow, alongside Khor Kheng Hwai. Fung carded a one-under 71 that had him on 208 in second spot, while Khor had a 70 for a 209 total in third place. Wilson Choo (69) was fourth on six-under 210. 



Mohd Amli signed for the low round of the tournament so far, when he came home with an eight-under 64. That outstanding performance, which would have been a new course had it not been for preferred lies, propelled him to five-under 211 and joint fifth place with Ben Leong (71). “That’s how it happens some day – everything you go for goes in. It was an enjoyable experience and I’ll try to do more of the same tomorrow,” added Amli, who said he turned pro in 2010.

Nicholas Fung opened up a two-stroke lead at the halfway stage of the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s Orna Closed Championship today.

Displaying the sort of form that brought him two successive PGM Player of the Year awards in 2012 and 2013, Fung carded a three-69 for a seven-under-par 137 total.

Leading the chase was Khor Kheng Hwai, who also had a second round 69, and Malaysia’s top-ranked amateur Low Khai Jei, who signed for a 70, and were joint runner-up on 139.

Another stroke back was Ben Leong, one of the PGM Tour’s form players, who carded a two-under 70 to share fourth place with co-leader of the first round, Lam Yu Shuen, who had a 73 for his day’s work. They were on four-under 140.

Happy with his performance so far, 19-year-old Khai Jei said his two-under 70 today was “very good”. “The course is playing tough but I managed to get to two-under today and five-under overall, which I think is very good.”

In contrast, Fung had six birdies, but also a bogey at the par-3 12th and a double-bogey at par-4 16th hole.

Following the cut-off, 45 pros will return for the third round tomorrow and one amateur – Khai Jei. Joint first round leader, amateur player Brandon Lau, imploded with an 84 that left him in a tie for 34th place on 150.

PGM Orna Closed Championship 2015 - Round 1 Results



Woods needed to get away from the game for a while was the advice he heard- Woods ignored advice. Traits found in all greats –MY WAY- IS THE RIGHT WAY FOR ME-IN THIS CASE PLAY to SHINE to polish up -GET OVER AND NOT RETARD.

PGM Orna Closed Championship 2015 - Round 1 Results



Young Brandon Lau continued with his good form to take the first round lead of the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s RM180,000 Orna Closed Championship in Melaka today.

The 22-year-old, who won the 10th leg of the PGM’s Development Circuit – Qualifying School at Glenmarie Golf & Country Club last week, fired an impressive six-under 66 at Orna Golf & Country Club, to lead by a stroke from Lam Yu Shuen.
What some might view as puzzling, Lau said he felt much more comfortable today than he did in the Tour’s feeder circuit event last week.

“I hit the ball solidly today and made a few good putts, so overall I’m happy with where I am,” he said.

Lau, starting on the 10th tee, strung together six birdies in a row over his last six holes to give clear indication that if he keeps up this sort of form, he will be a force to reckon with.

Akhmal Tarmizee, Nicholas Fung and Wilson Choo were tied for third another shot back on 68, while
Kenneth Tobuse, S. Siva Chandhran and amateur player Low Khai Jei, who had a top-three finish at the PGM Northport Glenmarie Championship, where he picked world points, were joint sixth on 69.
