  1. Marc Leishman shot a final-round 7-under 65 to emerge from a three-way tie for the 54-hole lead with a five-shot victory for his fourth career PGA TOUR victory at the CIMB Classic. Moves up to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings. Leishman’s 26-under 262 tied Justin Thomas in his 2015 victory for the lowest 72-hole total since the tournament moved to TPC Kuala Lumpur.
  2. Emiliano Grillo opened his final round with a 6-under 30 that included six birdies but recorded an even-par 36 on the back nine to post a 66 and finish T2 at 21-under-par. His T2 finish is his best on the PGA TOUR since a T2 at THE NORTHERN TRUST way back in 2016 season.
  3. Kevin Tway remains atop the FedExCup standings for the second consecutive week following a T27 finish at the CIMB Classic.
