The Maybank Malaysian Open, as it is currently known for sponsorship reasons, is a men's professional golf tournament on the European and Asian Tours. Since its inauguration in 1962, there has never been a Malaysian winner.

The tournament was first sanctioned by the European Tour in 1999, as part of its expansion into Asia, which began in 1989. The 2012 event was held at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club with a prize fund of US$2.5 million.[1] Former winners include former World Number 1, Vijay Singh, and European Ryder Cup star, Lee Westwood.
