Maybank today unveiled the specially-commissioned Maybank Championship Malaysia Trophy at a special press event held at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur. 

The trophy, which was conceptualised by Maybank and created by the Royal Selangor, is a modern sculptural art form of the ‘Tiger’, an eminent symbol of Maybank. Weighing nearly five kilos and measuring 550mm x 340mm, the trophy is crafted out of pewter on a wooden base.

Officiating the ceremony was Tan Sri Dato’ Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor, the Chairman of Maybank. Also present was Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon, Chairman of Royal Selangor International Sdn Bhd.

“The Tiger is a notable brand mark of Maybank and a symbol of Malaysian national pride. With the trophy we aim to illustrate the best of the Maybank Championship Malaysia – ‘courageous, creative and collaborative’ – whilst playing our role in nurturing the pursuit of professional excellence in the game of golf, now across ASEAN countries,” said Tan Sri Dato’ Megat.
 
“We are honoured to have been chosen as the official trophy maker for the Maybank Championship Malaysia, and together with Maybank, we have created a work of art. The intriguing design of the “Tiger” coupled with our intricate craftsmanship, have created a new milestone in the arena of golf trophies in Asia,” added Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Royal Selangor’s specially-designed trophies are recognised as accolades that befit the world’s top achievers. The company has previously crafted trophies for other high profile events such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix races in Singapore, Malaysia and China; the Shanghai ATP Masters 1000 and the inaugural WTA Wuhan Open 2014 tennis tournaments.

Following the unveiling of the trophy, Tan Sri Dato’ Megat also announced the participation of the 2016 EURASIA CUP Captains, Darren Clarke and Jeev Milkha Singh, along with Matthew Fitzpatrick and Victor Dubuisson who join a previously announced stellar cast which includes Martin Kaymer, Louis Oosthuizen, Danny Willett, Thongchai Jaidee and Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

“The presence of these four renowned players adds to the attraction of the field at the Maybank Championship Malaysia,” said Tan Sri Megat Zaharuddin. “I am pleased that so far, seven of the top 50 world-ranked players will be at the tournament.”
