Before you make any 2018 CIMB Classic picks or enter a daily fantasy golf tournament on sites like DraftKings or FanDuel, you'll want to hear what the team at SportsLine has to say.

"He's given me lots of advice throughout my career as well as during my win two weeks ago".

New Zealander Danny Lee had the first ace of the 2018-19 season by holing out on the par-3 fourth hole. I went to Napa (for Safeway Open) and I was still in my practice mode, a little rusty, Lahiri added.

"I played this course many times with Gavin before the renovations and after today's practice round I feel there's isn't much difference; just a few changes here and there".

Thomas will tee off at TPC Kuala Lumpur hoping to claim the title for the third time in four years after wins here in 2015 and 2016, but he won't have it all his own way. Ryan Moore won it in 2013 and 2014 and then Justin Thomas claimed it in 2015 and 2016, while Pat Perez was the champion previous year.

American Pat Perez returns to Malaysia to defend the title he won at the US$7 million (RM28.7 million) CIMB Classic at TPC Kuala Lumpur (TPC KL) past year.

Sharma, making his debut at CIMB, leads the Asian Tour's Habitat for Humanity Standings as he prepares for his debut at the $7 million CIMB Classic on Thursday.

Perez cruised to victory at last year's tournament thanks to a score of 24 under par. "It was a very instrumental part of my career, for sure" said the world No. 4.

Check out the odds below and then visit SportsLine to see the full CIMB Classic projected leaderboard from the model that nailed the winners of four golf majors and was all over Ryan Moore's run last week. It was a close call and Lahiri nearly did not make it.

"Then I'm like, oh, maybe I'm not going to play".

"Everyone is excited to see them play again and I think it will help to get people to come along to Walton Heath, which is one of my favourite courses".

"I haven't really thought about anything or set any goals".

Perez: I think it's just been okay. Next week it's the CJ Cup in South Korea followed by the World Golf Championships event in Shanghai.

I'm looking forward to defending my title, especially when I've heard the course has been upgraded this year with new grasses on the fairways and greens.
