Leishman pulls away with final-day 65, wins CIMB Classic

Paul Casey is in contention at the CIMB Classic

The ever-consistent Leishman, victor of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and BMW Championship on the PGA Tour a year ago, had an even better finish than Woodland, draining six birdies in his last eight holes.

Leishman finished five clear of Emiliano Grillo and American duo Chesson Hadley and Bronson Burgoon with two-time victor Thomas in a share of fifth spot after an eight-under 64.

Woodland had been in a share of the half-way lead following an 11-under-par 61 to tie the course record on Friday.

SHOT OF THE DAY: It was basically over after this one dropped...

Prize money at Kuala Lumpur totals $7 million, with $1,62 million to the victor. He also receives invitations to the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions, a winners-only event in January, along with two major championships (Masters Tournament and PGA Championship) and THE PLAYERS Championship. I want to thank Callaway, I want to thank all my other sponsors for giving me what I need and the tools certainly worked this week.

"The golf course was fantastic". Yesterday started off great and struggled on the back nine, but I think that helped me today.

"I knew that even though I got off to a good start, I still needed to grind because there's some tough holes out there". When I'm feeling it and I'm hitting it good, I pretty much go at every pin and I feel like I can make all the putts.

The 34-year-old took control in Malaysia with four straight birdies inside his opening five holes before he finished his front nine with a long-range birdie on the ninth to hit the turn in 31.

"We'll sit that [trophy] in the middle of the table tonight and have a few beers and just talk about it and just have a good night with friends really".

First-round leader Bronson Burgoon is in a three-way tie for fifth after a second-round 69.

Shubhankar Sharma shot 64 on Friday, climbing 11 spots on the leaderboard and into a tie for third with England's Paul Casey entering the weekend.

272 - Keith Mitchell (USA) 70-65-71-66, John Catlin (USA) 73-65-67-67, Cameron Smith (AUS) 69-69-66-68.

Scott Parel was second, closing with a double bogey for a 65.
