PAULA CREAMER AND NATALIE GULBIS CONFIRM THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THE SIME DARBY LPGA MALAYSIA 2011

Kuala Lumpar, 03 August 2011 – Top American lady golfers, Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis, have confirmed their participation in the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2011. To be held from 13 – 16 October 2011 at the prestigious Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC), the American stars will compete alongside a star-studded line-up for the US$1.9 million prize purse.

Creamer, who turned professional in 2005 at the age of 18, is currently ninth in the Women’s World Golf Rankings (as of 25 July 2011) and second among American lady golfers. She has an impressive nine LPGA victories to her name.

Creamer, 25, did not compete during last year’s Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia after a thumb injury forced her to withdraw from the tournament. This later led her to take a five-month layoff from the game.

Fellow American, Natalie Gulbis, will be hoping to better her success in last year’s event where she finished joint 12th.

Dato’ Wahab Maskan, Chief Operating Officer of Sime Darby Berhad and Managing Director of Sime Darby Property said, “We are delighted that Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis have confirmed their participation in the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2011 which we hope will once again showcase the battle of the world’s top ladies golfers on our very own turf at KLGCC and we look forward to hosting another fantastic tournament in October.”

Commenting on both players tourism activities ahead of the tournament, Dato’ Wahab further said, “We believe the project will not only help to showcase the beauty and rich cultural heritage that Malaysia has to offer but also highlight Sime Darby’s conservation efforts in the region. We are also confident that the programme will generate positive publicity that will further promote the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2011 event.”

As part of this year’s tournament activities, sponsors Sime Darby has arranged for the two top American lady golfers, on a five-day tour of Malaysia, to highlight the country’s attractions and tourist offerings. The players are currently exploring Malaysia’s top destinations, as well as gaining an insight into Sime Darby’s concerted initiatives in the protection and preservation of environment and the conservation of animals and their natural habitat.

They visited the Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary in Sabah this week, where they witnessed the Orangutans being fed by the sanctuary personnel. They even posed for photographs with the Orangutans, much to their fans’ delight.

Sepilok, one of the popular tourist spots in Malaysia, has been a highlight for the players since their Malaysian tour began on Monday. Creamer said, “I’m so excited to be touring Malaysia and exploring the wonderful conservation projects led by Sime Darby.

“It was incredible to go to Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary, especially to be there during feeding time! There’s so much
