Zimbabwean Scott Vincent, who is in red-hot form, today said he hopes to clinch his maiden Asian Tour title.
It would be not be easy as he is up against some good players like SSP Chowrasia and Khalin Joshi at the Take Solutions Masters.
"I would love to win his maiden Asian Tour Title. I am in good form and I would like to continue it here also, but it will not be easy. There are good players like Khalin Joshi, Chirag Kumar, SSP Chowrasia. It will be a hard-fought battle," Vincent told PTI ahead of Take Solutions Masters kick-off here.
The field also is strong and it is not going to be a walk in the park for anyone, he added.
"It was quite funny. A friend of mine was going to play Asian tournament which I did not consider. He said you should come along. I did go with him.
Vincent had won 2016 Asian Tour Rookie of the Year award and continued his impressive run with four top-10 finishes in 2017.
In 208, he has clinched six top-10 finishes, including a second place finish in Indonesia last month.
"Back home my father initiated me into the sport. My coach Roger Baylis put in hours and hours on me at the growing period of my career, and here I am contesting three years hence in Asian tour," he said.
"Golf has been a great sport in Zimbabwe. It has produced a lot of good players like Nick Price, Mark McNulty, Brendon de Jonge and others. Hence, it is making strides. It is developing, of course," he said.
Many junior programmes have been initiated at grassroots level to popularise the sport in Zimbabwe, he added.
Replying to a question, Vincent said Henrik Stenson is his favourite player, who hits long and has strong stunning looks.
