The 2013 CIMB Classic tees off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Thursday, with the event offering FedEx Cup points for the first time in its four-year history.
A select field of 78 players make up the no-cut field. The players are grouped in threesomes for all four days with a split-tee start for each round off Nos. 1 and 10 at Kuala Lumpur G&CC.
The feature group for the first two rounds includes Phil Mickelson with former fellow Butch Harmon student and defending champion Nick Watney and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, who, if you’ll remember, used to go by a completely other name.
Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson are grouped with Siddikur Rahman, while Bo Van Pelt gets Hideki Matsuyama and Seuk-hyun Baek.
