'Anything is possible': Shubhankar Sharma dreams of upset PGA Tour win

Indian golf Shubhankar Sharma hits five birdies to finish tied-14th in CIMB Classic

The 2019 PGA Tour makes its way overseas this week for the CIMB Classic.

Perez won here previous year after a birdie blitz saw him finish on 24-under par, while Moore, himself a double champion in KL (2013, 2014), is coming off a T2 finish at last week's Safeway Open, where he lost out in a three-way play-off to Kevin Tway. All three are in the field this week.

Shubhankar Sharma at the CIMB Classic. In 2017, Pat Perez shot 24-under 264 to win by four shots over Keegan Bradley and finish seven shots ahead of Sung Kang and the reigning Rookie of the Year, Xander Schauffele. The world No. 4 picked up his first PGA Tour victory at this event in 2015 and then successfully defended his title in 2016, spurring his five-win 2016-17 season that included his first major, the FedEx Cup title and player of the year honors.

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the 2018 CIMB Classic: Cameron Smith, a 33-1 long shot, makes a serious run at the title.

The Indian star has led on the Habitat for Humanity Standings since winning in Malaysia in February but he has Sanghyun Park of Korea, who has won twice on the Asian Tour, breathing down his neck.

With Park also in the elite field this week and a mere $54,278 separating the duo, Sharma knows he must put in a solid performance at the TPC Kuala Lumpur, a course where he has never played on before.

Bloomberg finds more proof of hacked Supermicro hardware
Cable provider CenturyLink has denied being the subject of the story, and Engadget has learned that Comcast also isn't involved. The Supermicro backdoor reported Tuesday was also the result of malicious hardware secretly implanted during its manufacture.

The 23-year-old said the wins at the Macau Qinhuangdao Championships is opening "incredible" doors and opportunities for him having only joined the paying ranks in January this year, just weeks after representing New Zealand at the Asian Pacific Amateur Champs. Sharma, a two-time Asian Tour victor, now leads the Habitat for Humanity Standings with a season's haul of $608,494.

Moore is a two-time victor of this event as well, last winning in 2014.

"Twenty years later, I hold a Tour card. I think I've got enough experience from playing against the world-class players to do so".

However, it's going to be interesting for all of us, as we will play on the upgraded course for the first time and I'm told the fairways and greens are going to be a lot firmer now, which will be an interesting test to what we've faced over the last few years.

Here you can find everything you need to stay up to date with the world's foremost golf tour. I have my coach here this week and even he's really happy with the way I'm hitting it, and I hit it pretty good today as well.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat, the 2013 Asian Tour number one, will play in his first PGA Tour event at the CIMB Classic after becoming the first Thai to earn a PGA Tour card.
