KOTA KINABALU: The Education Ministry and state and national golf associations need to foster close cooperation to promote the sport in schools, said Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.
He said this commitment should be highlighted, especially through the Malaysian Schools Sports Council (MSSM) National Golf Championship, which is an effective platform to produce world-class golf athletes.
“This initiative will highlight new talent and enhance the skills of young athletes through intensive and systematic training to pave the way for Malaysia at the international golf arena one day,” he said in a speech at the closing of the MSSM National Golf Championship, here on Thursday night.
His speech was read out by Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.
Musa also commended the Education Ministry and the agencies concerned for their commitment and role in developing the prestigious sport among the younger generation.
Selangor emerged as overall champion at the event, followed by the host Sabah contingent in second place, and Negeri Sembilan in third place. — Bernama
