The bubbly Filipino, who has never produced an ace in his career previously, fired the magical shots at the par three sixth and 14th holes at Kota Permai Golf and Country Club, which is hosting the RM1.2 million (approximately US$400,000) Asian Tour event for the first time. Que was thrilled with his sterling effort with a six iron and pitching wedge respectively, which officials believe was a first in Asian Tour history.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better start. I’ve never had a hole-in-one in my life and all of the sudden, I have two in one day! The funny thing was we were talking about it on the 14th tee and said what if I had another hole in one here and I did it. It could be a good omen or a bad omen. When you’re so lucky on one day, the next day might be different. Hopefully it’ll continue for the whole week,” said Que.
“Malaysia is like my second home. I always play well here. I have luck here and whenever I’m over, I’m so relaxed. I could have won a car (if it was done during the tournament) but I’m not complaining. I rather win the tournament again,” he added.
