Reigning Asian Tour Order of Merit winner Anirban Lahiri will lead the Indian charge along with SSP Chawrasia and Gaganjeet Bhullar when the USD seven million CIMB Classic golf tournament starts on Thursday.

Order of Merit leader Scott Hend of Australia and a strong line-up of young Asian Tour stars will also feature at the event.

Hend, a nine-time Asian Tour winner, will be joined by countryman Marcus Fraser, who won in Malaysia in February, and young guns Jeunghun Wang of Korea, Soomin Lee, Miguel Tabuena of the Philippines and Chan Shih-chang of Chinese Taipei at the TPC Kuala Lumpur.

Tabuena, Wang, Lee, Lahiri, Bhullar and Song, who are still in their 20s, represent a new breed of young and talented Asian Tour stars searching for more glory at the CIMB Classic.

Defending champion Justin Thomas will also feature in the CIMB Classic alongside Adam Scott of Australia, who finished second last year, Patrick Reed, Sergio Garcia of Spain and Asian Tour honorary members K.J. Choi of Korea and Vijay Singh of Fiji.
