The CIMB Classic is a professional golf tournament in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the PGA Tour. Played in the fall, the event debuted in 2010 and moved to the West Course of the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in 2013; the first three editions were played at The Mines Resort & Golf Club in Mines Wellness City.

It is the first event ever sanctioned by the PGA Tour in Southeast Asia.[1] It is an official money event on the Asian Tour, but was an unofficial money event on the PGA Tour through 2012. Beginning in October 2013, it gained official status on the PGA Tour and the field was increased to 78 players. FedEx Cup points are earned by those making the cut, the winner earns a trip to the Masters, and the purse is US$7 million.[2]

Field

In 2010, the 40-man field consisted of the top 25 available players from the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings, the top 10 available from the Asian Tour's Order of Merit and 5 sponsors exemptions.[3] In 2011, the field expanded to 48 players, 30 from the FedEx Cup standings, 10 from the Asian Tour's Order of Merit, and 8 sponsors exemptions.[4] In 2013, the field expanded to 78, 60 from the FedEx Cup standings, 10 from the Asian Tour's Order of Merit, and 8 sponsors exemptions.[5]
