June 13: In our latest Q&A series with stars on the Asian Tour, we catch up with Thailand’s rising star Arnond Vongvanij on the things that he does to relax, his favourite movie and club in the bag and the best dish that he can serve.
What’s the most memorable moment of your career so far?
Winning the King’s Cup in 2012. It is always an honour for any Thai player to win the King’s or Queen’s Cup.
What do you do to relax when you’re at home?
I like to watch movies and television series. I’m currently watching Arrow, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Blacklist.
What’s your favourite club in the bag?
My putter because I sink a lot of putts with it!
What’s your favourite movie?
I like all the Fast and Furious movies.
What did you think of the inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM?
It is a great opportunity for Asian golfers and it is one of the tournaments which I would like to play in the future.
Who is your favourite female golfer?
I like American golfer Natalie Gulbis but now there are a lot of good looking female golfers so it isn’t easy to choose!
What’s your favourite food on Tour?
It depends on where I am. If I’m in the Philippines, it is definitely burgers. But if I had to choose one, it would be sushi.
One sentence to describe the Asian Tour?
Asian Tour is like a family golf tour. You feel warm and welcome here.
What’s your favourite superpower?
Teleportation.
What are your favourite sports apart from golf?
I started watching American Football when I was in college and it is still one of my favourite sports.
What’s better for you? A hole in one or loads of birdies?
A hole in one when there is a big prize like a car.
If you cook, what’s the best dish you can make?
I can make a good sandwich Panini!
