South Korean teenager Noh Seung-yul became the youngest professional in history to win a European Tour event when he edged out compatriot K J Choi to claim the 2010 Maybank Malaysian Open. Noh, at 18 years and 281 days, beat the record for youngest professional winner - previously set by Dale Hayes in 1971 - by nine days, although the youngest winner in Tour history is New Zealand's Danny Lee who was 18 and 213 days when he won the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic as an amateur. Noh secured victory by holing a four foot birdie putt on the 18th green to card a four under par 68 after playing a superb chip shot from the edge of the practice putting green behind a hospitality marquee. The event has been co-sanctioned between The European Tour and the Asian Tour since 1999 and was staged at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club for the first time in 2010. Thongchai Jaidee recorded back to back victories in 2005 and 2005 and Arjun Atwal has also won it twice, in 2003 and 2008.
