Sentosa, Singapore, May 11: It took an agonizing wait at the clubhouse and three trips down the down the 18th hole at the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club before Trevor Simsby secured his Asian Tour breakthrough at the Bandar Malaysia Open in March.
The taste of success was especially sweet for the American whose golfing journey has been met with lots of trials and tribulations along the way.
Leaving his ‘comfort zone” and home in California, Simsby came through the 2019 Qualifying School and plied his trade on both the Asian Tour and the ADT last season. He finished 84th on the 2019 Asian Tour Order of Merit to miss out on his playing rights for 2020 but a seventh-place finish on the ADT Merit rankings last season saw him regain his Asian Tour card for 2020.
Simbsy’s biggest professional victory in the Malaysian capital looked set to kickstart his career until the global COVID-19 outbreak put a pause to many of his well laid out plans. Until he steps back to the tee again, Simsby took some time off to reflect on his glorious moment in Kuala Lumpur with Olle Norberg, a former Asian Tour and European Tour professional.
