Former Beaver Captures Asian/European Tour Title
Feb. 16, 2009
Corvallis, Ore. -
Former Oregon State University men's golf athlete Anthony Kang, a member of the Asian and European Professional Golf Tour, birdied the final hole to capture the 72-hole Malaysian Open (co-sanctioned by the Asian/European Tour) over the weekend in Kuala Lumpur. The victory was his third tour title since turning professional in 1996.
Kang, who lettered at OSU from 1992-95, shot -17 for the tournament at the Saujana Golf and Country Club. He posted rounds of 74-66-64-67 over the par-72 course. The win was worth over US$333,000.
While at OSU, Kang had nine top-10 finishes and helped the Beavers qualify for the 1994 NCAA Championships. The native South Korean who came to OSU via Roosevelt High School in Honolulu also has titles at the 1999 Philippine Open and the 2001 Myanmar Open.
Another Beaver alum, Vincent Johnson, will make his PGA debut Thursday at the Northern Trust Open at the historic Riviera Country Club just outside of Los Angeles. Read more here.
