Gavin Green with the Mercuries Taiwan Masters trophy

Gavin Green’s victory in the Mercuries Taiwan Masters catapulted him 68 places up the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) into 157th place, the highest ranking ever achieved by a Malaysian since the OWGR began in 1986.

The previous highest ranking by a Malaysian was 191st, set by Iain Steel after his runner-up finish in the 2007 Singapore Masters.

The win in Taiwan also saw the 23-year-old Green move up to the top of the Asian Tour Order of Merit with US$527,346.

Green will have a potentially lucrative month in October with starts in three big-money events; the CIMB Classic, CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges and WGC-HSBC Champions.
