European Tour Golf Playing Field for 2017 Maybank Championship

The 2017 Maybank Championship golf tournament on the European Tour is taking place this week from February 9-12, 2017, at the Saujana Golf and Country Club located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Here is a list of the playing field for the 2017 Maybank Championship focusing on the top players.



Top ranked golfers in the 2017 Maybank Championship playing field include 2016 Masters winner Danny Willett, Charl Schwartzel, Bernd Wiesberger, Tommy Fleetwood, Wang Jeunghun (winner 2017 Qatar Masters), Thongchai Jaidee, Scott Hend, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Brandon Stone, K.T. Kim, Anirban Lahiri, Younghan Song, and Pablo Larrazabal. All those players are ranked in the top 100 in the world.

Players to watch for this week include Rikard Karlberg, Graeme Storm (winner 2017 South African Open), Alexander Levy, Sam Brazel (winner 2017 Hong Kong Open), Robert Karlsson, Matteo Manassero, Victor Dubuisson, David Horsey, James Morrison and last year's winner of this event Marcus Fraser.

There are six Americans in the playing field for the 2017 Maybank Championship. Anthony Kang, who won the Malaysian Open in 2009, along with Paul Peterson (winner 2016 Czech Masters), Casey O'Toole, Sam Chien, Johannes Veerman and David Lipsky. 

At the top end of ranked players the 2017 Maybank Championship playing field is not strong this week but the field has plenty of depth with players ranked in the top 100. The overall prize money is decent this week at $3 million so the Maybank Championship is obviously not paying out any major appearance fees this year to attract any top 10 ranked player.
