MALAYSIAN amateur Hisyam Abd Majid is looking forward to becoming a professional by making the cut and collecting his dues in the Maybank Malaysian Open which tees off today.
Hisyam, 19, will be among 22 Malaysians, six of whom are amateurs, who will be trying to make the cut for the weekend at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.
"It is not an impossible target, as I have played the course and it has been kind to me. I hope to play all four rounds, and hopefully, make some money and turn pro," said Hisyam.
Among the other local professional hopefuls are Danny Chia, Iain Steel, Ben Leong, Shaaban Hussin and S. Siva Chandhran.
