Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid, Chairman of Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM), took the opportunity to explain the rationale behind the creation of the newly unveiled EurAsia Cup trophy to Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak at his office in Putrajaya.

The EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM will be played from March 27-29 at Glenmarie Golf and Country Club which will pit Team Asia, led by captain Thongchai Jaidee, against a Miguel Angel Jimenez-led Team Europe in a Ryder Cup-style showdown.

The specially commissioned trophy was produced in Malaysia and designed by Tun Ahmad Sarji himself with the help of Mior Adlizul Jazmi of Permodalan Nasional Berhad and crafted by Hassan bin Mat Jusoh, a master craftsman at the renowned silversmiths KB Permai Krafperak Kelantan Silver. 

Using traditional Malaysian techniques and working almost entirely by hand, it took four expert craftsmen over two months to fashion the stunning trophy that now awaits the winning captain.  

The final sterling silver piece weighs over six kilograms and stands 18 inches tall.  The winner’s gold plated medal and the runner-up silver plated medal were also designed by Tun Ahmad Sarji with the help of Mior Adlizul.
