Que eyes season turnaround in Crans

  • SHARE
August 15: Filipino ace Angelo Que believes his form will turn for the better when he returns to one of the most breath-taking locations on the Asian Tour schedule at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland next month.
The Omega European Masters is the only event to be jointly sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour on European soil and will be played at the scenic Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club from September 4-7.
With the Swiss Alps providing a dramatic backdrop, the Omega European Masters has always been highly rated amongst the players and will also launch the second half of the Asian Tour’s 2014 season.
For Que, the prestigious tournament will offer him the opportunity to regain his best game, having enjoyed a commendable tied seventh finish in 2009, the year the Omega European Masters became a co-sanctioned event with the European Tour.
“It’s one of my favourite events. I like playing there. I like the place, I like the scenery. It’s a bit hard to get there but once you’re there, it’s easy for you to get around. I look forward to playing in the Omega European Masters again next month,” said Que.
After enjoying one of his most consistent seasons in 2013 where he posted six top-10s, the bubbly Filipino has yet to replicate the form that has led him to a career three Asian Tour titles.
“My current form is a bit off. Every time I get something going, something else happens. I’m just hoping for everything to come together nicely,” said Que.
“I am just hoping to play well for now. I’m keeping it simple although I haven’t been playing the standard of golf that I played last year. I’ll take whatever that comes and hope for the best,” added the father of two.
The Filipino posted rounds of 70, 70, 68 and 69 to finish in a share of 22nd place despite the presence of several of the world’s leading players at the Omega European Masters last year.
But with his top-10 performance etched in his mind, he feels confident of another strong run in Crans.
“I played quite well last year but I’m hoping to better that result this time round. It will be great if I can do better than the tied seventh finish in 2009. It’s always a tough week because all the top players will be there,” he said.
Charismatic Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez, the European Tour’s oldest winner and holder of 21 titles including a win in Switzerland in 2010, will headline the tournament once more alongside talented Italian Matteo Manassero and French star Victor Dubuisson.
