Paul Casey's highlights | Round 1 | CIMB 2018 2018

"I could have made some more - I didn't putt as well as I did previous year obviously".

New Zealander Danny Lee had the first ace of the 2018-19 season by holing out on the par-3 fourth hole. "This is always going to be the place I got my first PGA Tour victory and that's very, very special".

"I feel like in my short career, this is my sixth year as a pro, but what I learned is that it's only when you are not playing well that you learn more about yourself". Coming back to Malaysia will be a good starting point, for sure.

With Park also in the elite field this week and a mere $54,278 separating the duo, Sharma knows he must put in a solid performance at the TPC Kuala Lumpur, a course where he has never played on before. The greens are fantastic.

"I haven't really thought about anything or set any goals". The fairway will be more hard because it's going to roll off the fairways because previously, it just stops or just end up a yard away. Before you make any 2018 CIMB Classic picks or enter a daily fantasy golf tournament on sites like DraftKings or FanDuel, you'll want to hear what the team at SportsLine has to say.

"My goal is to be in the top 60 in the FedEx Cup standings, and keep the card as long as I can. I think I've got enough experience to playing against the world-class players to do so". The, it's the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges in Korea next week followed by the final WGC event of the year in China at the HSBC Champions.

"No doubt very, very important", said Sharma, who came to global prominence with his T9 finish at the WGC-Mexico Championship where he led after the second and third rounds.

The wind. It's a golfer's nightmare, and even the best players in the world are occasionally afflicted by the yips in a breeze.

"It helps that the events are in Asia and I am so much more comfortable in the conditions here". If I just play well in these three events, have consistent finishes, I feel like I'll get off to a very good start towards securing my PGA Tour card and it will obviously help my world ranking.

According to the latest oddsmakers, Justin Thomas is heavily favored to win, as he has 9/2 odds to prevail. In fact, he fired two rounds of 64 at last year's CIMB Classic and finished fifth.

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.
