Nicholas Fung hopes to shake off his fever in time for the Sabah Championships which tee-off on Wednesday.
PETALING JAYA: Reigning Asian Development Tour (ADT) Order of Merit champion Nicholas Fung hopes to have recovered from a fever in time to contend for the RM250,000 PGM Sabah Championship starting on Wednesday.
The Sabahan will spearhead the local charge alongside Abel Tam, Arie Irawan and Ben Leong, who won on the domestic circuit two weeks ago, at the Sabah Golf and Country Club in Kota Kinabalu.
ADT hopefuls American Brett Munson, Thailand’s Pavit Tangkamolprasert, England’s Peter Richardson and Sweden’s Nils Floren, who all occupy the top-five on the current ADT Order of Merit, will also feature at the Sabah Golf and Country Club in Kota Kinabalu.
Other notable contenders include England’s Grant Jackson, Scotland’s James Byrne, American James Bowen and China’s Ye Jianfeng.
Despite feeling unwell, Nicholas is determined to pull through the week and get his game back in shape.
“I’ve been running a temperature since yesterday but I will try my best to play well this week. Hopefully, I can get well before the tournament starts. I’m definitely hoping to do well in front of the home crowd,” said the 24-year-old Nicholas, who represented Team Asia at the inaugural EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-Hicom in March.
Nicholas was the toast of the 2013 season when he claimed a victory, three second-placed results and three other top-10s on the ADT to emerge as the Order of Merit champion.
The top five players on the Order of Merit at the end of the season will secure Asian Tour cards for 2015.
