Malaysia’s Nicholas Fung remains confident of winning his first title on the Asian Tour following another close call in the Yeangder TPC in Taipei yesterday.
Fung had looked poised for victory at Linkou International Golf & Country Club until late bogeys on 15 and 17 derailed his title hopes. The 26-year-old then missed a birdie putt on the 18 which would have given him a spot in the play-off between eventual winner Carlos Pigem of Spain and Japan’s Shuya Takesayu.
“It might not be the right time for me to win yet and I just have to work harder. I’ve to remain more positive and confident about myself. I’m sure I’ll be a winner one day,” said Fung, who settled for for joint third place on 11-under-par with Australia’s Scott Barr.
“I did what I had to do but unfortunately not good enough to win. At the start of the week, my goal was to finish inside the top-10 and I’m happy I managed to do that. I missed a short birdie putt on 14 which could have made a huge difference today. That affected by concentration,” he added.
