KUALA LUMPUR, April 2 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's newest golf star Nicholas Fung is prepared to rise to the occasion as he dreams of glory at the US$2.75 million (RM9 million) Maybank Malaysian Open which tees off at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC) from April 17 to 20.
The 23-year-old Fung is riding high on his new-found confidence after being a part of Team Asia which produced a stunning fight back to share the inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-Hicom with Team Europe in Shah Alam, last week.
Although the young Malaysian did not win any of his matches, he earned plenty of praise for his fighting performance, especially in the singles session when he narrowly lost to Team Europe captain Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain by one-hole, on the 18th green.
"I am proud of myself. It shows that I can play under pressure with a big crowd following our match and this will be a good lesson for me, especially when I will be playing in the Maybank Malaysian Open.
"I still need to learn and playing against Miguel, I could see that he wasn't under pressure in our match. I need to keep improving my game to become better," said Fung as quoted in the Asian Tour official website, www.asiantour.com today.....
