I hope my life story can inspire many as it shows giving up is never an option. It has been a very tough journey but I persevered and focused on my training in hope of getting back to my competitive best. If I compare my health to last year, I’m definitely 50% better than what it was then. And of course, if you rate it against my pre-operations days, it’s just about 70% of what it used to be. Every day brings new hope and its always improving, whether it’s my overall fitness or my form on the golf course. Obviously I hope to carry on my winning form from last week but to be honest, I also want to be realistic with my target. I’m not sure if I can reclaim the title as I’ll probably be lagging behind my rivals in terms of my fitness but hopefully the golf can tilt that balance.

I’m really happy with my game. I’ve learnt a lot the last couple of weeks especially at the U.S. Open and I believe my game is ready. This course suits my game. I’ve played well here where I almost won it twice and hopefully this will be my week.

The win here was a massive step for me in my career and showed I’m capable I’m of winning more events on the Asian Tour. I’m looking forward to the week. I like to recall the shots that I made last year and the good feelings I had. I’m hitting the ball well and my putting is not bad either. So I’m definitely in for a chance to defend my title.

This is one of my favourite venues on the Asian Tour. 2012 was the year I won and I’ve got lots of good memories and positive vibes on this golf course. I can’t wait to get the week going. The season has been average. I’m just hoping to kick-start it with a good showing this week as I’m striking the ball better. I’ve put in a lot of effort especially during the last three weeks. The time has come for me to deliver.
Ends.
