Perez wins by four in Malaysia

Pat Perez won his second US PGA Tour victory in a year when he cruised to a four-stroke win at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia yesterday.

The 41-year-old American Perez teed off with a four-shot lead at TPC Kuala Lumpur and a three-under 69 was more than enough to close out his third Tour win at the US$7 million (S$9.4m)co-sanctioned event.

Perez finished with an aggregate score of 24-under 264, ahead of second-placed Keegan Bradley with Xander Schauffele and Kang Sung Hoon in joint third. - REUTERS
