Calm Finau Will Not Panic Ahead Of Debut At The Hong Kong Open
Hongkong, January 8, American Tony Finau hopes to start the new year by producing a winning performance with a calm mind as he takes on a galaxy of Asian Tour stars when the Hong Kong Open gets underway on Thursday.
“I’m really excited to be here in Hong Kong. It’s my first time. I just played the golf course for the first time and I think it’s going to be a great test. My coach and I talk about it all the time. There are three things which we don’t want to be doing on the golf course, panic, don’t panic and don’t panic,” said Finau in the press conference yesterday.
Finau’s mantra to his rise on the world stage is largely attributed to his ability to stay calm under pressure and the world number 16 is ready to stick to his mental process when he tees off at the Hong Kong Golf Club for the first time this week.
More than 30 Asian Tour champions will also get their 2020 season underway at Hong Kong’s longest standing professional sporting event, which is sanctioned the Asian Tour and the Hong Kong Golf Association, with the European Tour continuing to stage the tournament.
