Q&A: Six things about Fung

  • SHARE
Sentosa, Singapore, June 21: Nicholas Fung is one of the promising stars to emerge from Malaysia. He continues his search for a first Asian Tour victory but has shown positive signs that he is edging closer to the elusive win.
In this latest Q&A with Fung, he talks about his inspiration and his most memorable golfing moment to date.
What’s your best golfing moment to date?
It has to be both the editions of the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM. The latest one was memorable for me because I partnered with my countryman Danny Chia. We played really well in the Foursomes and Fourball formats.
Where is your favourite holiday destination?
I like Japan a lot especially Tokyo. The people are nice and I have some good friends there. The food there is also very healthy. When I’m in Japan, I’m always eating sushi!
Who is your inspiration in life?
My father because he taught me how to play golf and he gives me confidence when I’m playing badly. Sometimes he travels with me and he supports me in any way he can. My girlfriend (Suki Loh) is also very supportive and only wants the best for me.
If you could buy anything in this world, what would it be?
I will buy the tallest building in the world because everyone can see it and talk about it. I will name it the Fung Tower (laughs).
Why did you start playing golf?
I was introduced to golf by my dad, who is a social golfer. When I was young, he would take me to the golf course and I would watch him play golf. From there, I learnt how to chip and putt and since then, I’ve always liked golf.
What playlist do you have going in your phone and car right now?
Faded by Allen Walker.
