NOTES
The first unofficial event of the PGA Tour`s offseason kicks off this week with the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic Malaysia. Ben Crane closed with a two-under 69 last year to win the inaugural title by a stroke over Brian Davis. Current world No. 1 Luke Donald had four straight 67s to share third place with Martin Laird at minus-16. It was after this event last year that Tiger Woods lost the top spot in the world rankings. With his little play, and poor results over the last two years, Woods has now tumbled to 55th in the world. Last year`s event was the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in Southeast Asia. Golf Channel will have live coverage of all four rounds in the middle of the night eastern time. The next unofficial stop for the PGA Tour will be next week in China, where Francesco Molinari is expected to defend his title at the WGC - HSBC Champions.
