"I will keep to the same strategy this week. I just want to go out there and give myself chances for birdies. I will stick to the same routine, keep to the same mindset and try to play with more confidence, added Choo, whose best result on the ADT this season was a tied-ninth finish at the season-opening PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship."
Kuala Lumpur, June 10 - Singapore's Choo Tze Huang hopes his recent good run of form will spur him to victory at the PGM Vascory Templer Park Championship which starts Wednesday.

Buoyed by his career's first top-10 finish on the Asian Tour last week, Choo will be amongst an international field from over 16 countries challenging for honours in the $80,000 Asian Development Tour (ADT) event at the Templer Park Country Club.

His title challenge will be put to test against a talented field that includes proven ADT winners, Filipino brothers Jay and Rufino Bayron, Pavit Tangkamolprasert of Thailand, Japan's Mitsuhiko Hashizume and American Brett Munson.

Reigning ADT Order of Merit winner and defending champion Nicholas Fung will also be spearheading the local charge alongside experienced Iain Steel and Danny Chia, who have both recorded two victories on the ADT.

Choo expressed relief after capping his best result on the Asian Tour since turning professional in 2011. The Singaporean believes he is peaking at the right time and is confident of a good result at the PGM Vascory Templer Park Championship.

I'm extremely thrilled to finish in top-10 last week. I can take a lot of confidence from there, knowing that I do have the capabilities to compete with the top guys out there. I just need to keep working hard and try to get better so I can be out here more often, said the 27-year-old.

Choo, who missed the cut in last year's edition, is hopeful of making amends when he returns to the Templer Park Country Club this week.

I will keep to the same strategy this week. I just want to go out there and give myself chances for birdies. I will stick to the same routine, keep to the same mindset and try to play with more confidence, added Choo, whose best result on the ADT this season was a tied-ninth finish at the season-opening PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship.

The ADT, which was launched in 2010 with five tournaments before growing to eight in 2011, 13 in 2012 and a record 16 in the 2013 season, has established itself as a gateway to the Asian Tour.
