Malaysian golfer Arie Irawan died in his hotel room at the age of 28 during the Sanya championship at the Chinese holiday resort of Hainan.

A PGA Tour statement said that Irawan's death was due to "apparent natural causes," but a coroner's report was not completed.

Irawan, who became a professional in 2013, had missed the cutback at the PGA Tour China Series tournament.

Organizers canceled the final round out of respect for the Irawan family.

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

"The PGA Tour and the China Golf Association saddened about this loss of one of our members and share sincere condolences to Arie & # 39; s wife, Marina, and his parents, Ahmad and Jeny, "said a PGA Tour statement.

"When something of this magnitude occurs in the golf world, we all mourn in the same time."

American Trevor Sluman was named winner after the tournament was reduced to a 54-hole event.
