Despite having just won his maiden Asian Tour title at the 2017 Mercuries Taiwan Masters, Gavin Green has his eyes set on a higher goal.

Not contented with just competing in Asia, the 23-year-old wants to be the first Malaysian golfer to play on the European Tour.

"It is massive and has always been the best tour due to its experience and learning opportunity," the current world No. 157, who also represented Malaysia at the Rio Olympics, told Stadium Astro.

"It has always been my dream to play on the European Tour and by participating on it, maybe it can help me change my perspective and gain a lot of experience.

"I hope I can get on it by next year and then the PGA Tour in two or three years' time."

Green is currently preparing for 2017 CIMB Classic, which will be held at TPC Kuala Lumpur from October 12 to 15, and will see him go up against the likes of two-time defending champion Justin Thomas and world No. 3 Hideki Matsuyama.

It will be his second outing in the Malaysian event, having finished 69th last year, and he is hoping for a better performance this time.

"The course is not easy and I have played here a lot of times, but it is a course where I know I can obviously do well," he said.

"A lot of it has to do with the mental preparation and having played here last year, I think it has helped me overcome the anxiety.

"Instead of 'Wow, it is the CIMB Classic', it feels like just another event to me.

"I am more relaxed now, which is good, so I am hoping for a solid week."
