Malaysian golfer Arie Irawan died of “apparent natural causes” on Sunday in his hotel room on the Chinese resort island of Hainan, the PGA tour said in a statement.

The 28-year-old Arie, who turned professional in 2013 and won two events on the Asian Development Tour in 2015, had missed the halfway cut at the Sanya Championship.

The competition was the second event on the PGA Tour China Series.

“The PGA Tour and the China Golf Association grieve at this loss of one of our members and share sincere condolences with Arie’s wife, Marina, and his parents, Ahmad and Jeny,” the PGA tour statement added.

“When something of this magnitude occurs in the golf world, we all grieve at the same time.

“Out of respect for the family, officials cancelled the final round of the Sanya Championship, the tournament therefore becoming a 54-hole event.”

The coroner’s report had not been completed, the statement said further.

Arie’s golf career was interrupted in 2016 when he was involved in an accident on a moped and sidelined for several months.

He was ranked 1,366th in the world this week.

He married Marina Malek last May and she sometimes worked as his caddie, even if Arie admitted that she did not know much about golf.

“If I make a bad score she will say ‘it is okay, it is okay’,” he told Malaysia’s The Star newspaper last year.

“She keeps me calm, relaxed and happy. So, I just go out there and play golf. That helps me a lot. She has always been there for me through the bad and good times.” (NAN)
