Malaysian golfer Irawan found dead in hotel room aged 28”

Sunday's final round of the PGA Tour Series-China Sanya Championship was canceled after Malaysian pro Arie Irawan was found dead in his hotel room at the age of 28. Local medical personnel pronounced Irawan dead "after 45 minutes of continued revival efforts".

The PGA Tour Series-China said in a statement that Irawan missed the 36-hole cut on Friday in the tournament at Sanya Yalong Bay Golf Club.

Arie Irawan has died at 28.

"This is just a awful tragedy that affects all of us who are part of a very tight-knit family here in China", Greg Carlson, the tour's executive director, told the site.

A PGA Tour statement said Irawan's death was because of "apparent natural causes" but a coroner's report had not been completed. "We are incredibly saddened by this news, and we extend our honest condolences to his wife and family".

Organizers cancelled the final round in Hainan out of respect for Irawan's family, with American Trevor Sluman declared the victor.

Trevor Sluman, who shot a third-round six-under 66 to take a two-shot lead on Saturday, was declared the champion and his victory will count as an official PGA TOUR Series-China win.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Arie during this hard period".

"This is one of those times, and after consultation with sponsors, the golf course and tour staff in Florida, canceling the final round was the proper decision".

Irawan, who was ranked 1,366th in the world, won two events on the Asian Development Tour in 2015.

Hundreds of fans have paid tribute to the golfer, who Wednesday wife Marina Malek past year. "Rest in Peace, Arie".
