Fung Aims To Shine For Team Asia In EurAsia Cup

KUALA LUMPUR, March 10 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's Nicholas Fung is determined to shine for Team Asia and repay team captain, Thongchai Jaidee's faith in him at the inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM against Team Europe which will be held at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club from March 27 to 29.

The 23-year-old Fung is ready to rise to the occasion in the Ryder Cup style showdown against the Miguel Angel Jimenez-led European side which includes Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn and Jamie Donaldson, who finished tied second at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship on Sunday.

Fung said he enjoys the pressure of match play situations, especially when his first professional victory came at a match play tournament in Vietnam in 2010.

"My first pro win (in 2010) was in a match play event. As I was still a new pro golfer, I never thought I would win but I started winning all my matches.

"In the quarterfinals, I was three down through 13 holes but I told myself that I still had five holes to play and then I made five birdies in a row to win the match," said Fung as quoted in the Asian Tour website, www.asiantour.com today.....
