Recently, the nation was shocked with the sudden passing of national No 1 golfer, Arie Irawan Fauzi.

The 28-year-old died in his sleep in his hotel room while competing in the Sanya Championship, a PGA Tour Series China event.

According to reports, he had died of natural causes and out of respect, the tournament officials cancelled the final round yesterday.

He turned professional in 2013 and Arie played his best golf in 2015 when he claimed two Asian Development Tour (ADT) victories in 2015, winning the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Invitational in Philippines and PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship in Kedah.

After his victory in Philippines, he scaled his career-best world ranking at No.296 and became the national No.1 for a short time.

Following his sudden death, his wife took to social media to pen a few heartfelt words for her beloved.
