2013 reflections with Angelo Que

Singapore, February 7: In our 2013 Reflections series, asiantour.com talks to the bubbly Angelo Que of the Philippines, who shares his thoughts on a memorable 2013 season.
Can you reflect on your 2013 season?
I’ve no complaints as this is my best season ever. I finished top-five on five occasions and played really solid and consistent. Hopefully I can keep this up and have my fourth win on the Asian Tour very soon.
What was the highlight for you?
The highlight would have to be at the Hero Indian Open because I showed up on Thursday and almost had a chance of winning it without playing a practice round!
What was the low point for you?
There wasn’t a low point for me. It has been a great year. I played badly and missed cuts but it did not bother me. That’s part of golf. I always see the bright side of things. I can’t complain. I have very little regrets in my life and I’m grateful with what I have.
If you could re-hit one shot, what shot would that be?
My tee shot on the 18th hole on the final round of the Hero Indian Open. I made a bogey there. Things would have been different if I made birdie on that hole.
What was your favourite tournament of 2013?
Yeangder Tournament Players Championship in Chinese Taipei and Hong Kong Open. I had so much fun in those two events. It was my birthday during the Hong Kong Open week and Lam (Chih Bing), Unho (Park), Anthony (Kang) and myself stayed at the club. We were done by lunch but we stayed on to talk until evening!
What have you learned about yourself in 2013?
That I’m good enough! I have to keep believing in that. (Laughs)
Which aspect of your game will you practise during the off-season?
I will work on my putting. That’s always been a weakness in my game. It improved a lot in 2013 and that’s why I’ve been playing better.
Who do you think is the next big star on the Asian Tour?
Jazz Janewattananond and Richard T. Lee. They are young and talented but they just need a bit more experience.
Ends.
