Final Shot with Dr Brian Choa

Alex Jenkins talks to the Hong Kong Golf Association's Chairman of Rules about his introduction to the game, his favourite courses and who he'd have in his dream fourball 

Dr Brian Choa

When did you start playing - and where?

I started playing at the age of eight, here in Hong Kong.

How often do you play?

I generally play once a week and try to practise once midweek, mostly in Fanling.

What's been your best ever round?

I once made six birdies and an eagle on the Old Course in Fanling, but it was a bad round on that course in Club Championship qualifying that taught me a valuable lesson: I was nine-over-par after four holes and 11- over after 11, but with an eagle and a birdie I salvaged a 79. After a middling round in the afternoon I was actually drawn in the upper half of the field. That really taught me never to give up. Turning to a happier occasion, one of my best technical performances was my 28-28-27 start in my first Deep Water Bay Championship win, which gave me a large lead with nine holes to go.
