Malaysian golfer, Irawan, 28, found dead in his hotel room


Malaysian golfer Arie Irawan has died aged 28 in his hotel room during the Sanya Championship on the Chinese resort island of Hainan.

A PGA Tour statement said Irawan’s death was because of “apparent natural causes” but a coroner’s report had not been completed.

Irawan, who turned professional in 2013, had missed the cut at the PGA Tour China Series tournament.

Organisers cancelled the final round out of respect for Irawan’s family.

Irawan, who was ranked 1,366th in the world, won two events on the Asian Development Tour in 2015.
