Kuala Lumpur, March 19: Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid,
Chairman of Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM), took the opportunity to
explain the rationale behind the creation of the newly unveiled EurAsia Cup
trophy to Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak at his office
here in Putrajaya.
The EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM will be played from
March 27-29 at Glenmarie Golf and Country Club which will pit Team Asia, led by
captain Thongchai Jaidee, against a Miguel Angel Jimenez-led Team Europe in a
Ryder Cup-style shodown.
The specially commissioned trophy was produced in Malaysia
and designed by Tun Ahmad Sarji himself with the help of Mior Adlizul Jazmi of
Permodalan Nasional Berhad and crafted by Hassan bin Mat Jusoh, a master
craftsman at the renowned silversmiths KB Permai Krafperak Kelantan
Using traditional Malaysian techniques and working almost
entirely by hand, it took four expert craftsmen over two months to fashion the
stunning trophy that now awaits the winning captain. The final sterling
silver piece weighs over six kilograms and stands 18 inches tall. The
winner’s gold plated medal and the runner-up silver plated medal were also
designed by Tun Ahmad Sarji with the help of Mior Adlizul.
