Marc Leishman matched his best result of the calendar year on the US tour with a fine closing round 66 at TPC Kuala Lumpur today finishing fifth in the CIMB Classic.
The performance is a boost for Leishman in the build-up to the Emirates Australian Open at Royal Sydney, not to mention the HSBC Champions event in Shanghai next week.
Leishman, 32, had not logged a top-five result since February.
It was a great day for a bunch of Australians, with Scott Hend (tied-seventh), Aaron Baddeley and Adam Scott (tied-10th) all in the mix.
