Due to an outbreak of typhoid in Malaysia, the PGA Tour has warned players competing in this week's CIMB Classic, held in the country's capital and most populated city of Kuala Lumpur, to take health precautions. 
In a statement to GolfChannel.com, Ty Votaw, the tour’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, explained that the tour simply wanted to keep its field apprised of Malaysia's current conditions. 
"We do this with any international event as it relates to travel and what’s happening on the ground," Votaw said. 

According to the Malaysian news entity Asia One, while no deaths have been attributed to typhoid, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor have reported 52 cases of the bacterial infection since August. The country is also dealing with poor air quality issues stemming from drought.
The Health Ministry has advised the public to eat only hot and freshly cooked food in clean eateries, while the PGA Tour instructed players and staff to only consume bottled or boiled water.
The CIMB Classic is a co-sanctioned tournament between the PGA Tour and the Asian Tour. Held since 2010, this year's field includes Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Hideki Matsuyama, Kevin Na and Danny Lee. Ryan Moore is the defending champ.
