May 30: In our latest series of Q&As with stars from the Asian Tour, Nicholas Fung of Malaysia talks about the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM, his favourite superhero and his favourite sports apart from golf.
What’s the most memorable moment of your career so far?
I was a bit shocked when I finished tied second at the 2013 Indonesia Open. I didn’t expect that result so that’s definitely my most memorable moment so far.
What do you do to relax when you’re home?
Playing my PlayStation 4 and watching dramas on my laptop.
What’s your favourite club in the bag?
My driver because I like to hit it as far as I can!
What’s your favourite movie?
I have so many favourite movies but all the Fast and Furious movies are still the best.
What did you think of the inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM?
I’m glad that I was selected by Thongchai Jaidee to play in his team. I learnt a lot in the tournament. I’m now more patient on the golf course and I do not get too angry after hitting a bad shot. I’m definitely a better player now after the EurAsia Cup.
Who is your favourite female golfer?
Choi Na-yeon!
What’s your favourite food on Tour?
Bak-Kut-Teh! (pork ribs soup with herbs)
One sentence to describe the Asian Tour?
The Asian Tour is good for Asian players to improve and play in bigger events like Majors and World Golf Championship tournaments.
Who’s your favourite superhero?
Deadpool. He is so funny!
What are your favourite sports apart from golf?
Basketball, billiard, football and badminton.
What’s better for you? A hole in one or loads of birdies?
A lot of birdies!
If you cook, what’s the best dish you can make?
Instant noodles (laughs).
