February 18: Danny Chia of Malaysia will miss the Chinese New Year festivities when he contends for the Hero Indian Open title this week. Read what he has to say in his blog.
By Danny Chia
This is not the first time I’m away from home during Chinese New Year but playing golf is my job and it is a huge sacrifice which I have to make. This is part of golf. My wife understands this but my 10-year-old daughter Calista Chia is still young.
Obviously, it is difficult to be away from them during Chinese New Year. I will miss my family most during this festive time so I’ll spend as much time as I can with them when I’m home.
Believe me when I say that it isn’t easy to spend Chinese New Year in a different country without your family so I hope that I can get a good result this week and make up for what I’m missing at home.
I’ve enjoyed a good two-week stretch and I hope to continue my form. The Delhi Golf Club is not an easy golf course and I’ve never played well here. Hopefully that will change this week.
Ends.
