Korea's Soomin Lee hopes his time will finally come when he gets another shot at glory at the ISPS Handa Perth International which starts on Thursday.
The Korean came within a whisker of his maiden breakthrough in Malaysia last week but suffered a late meltdown which saw victory slip away from his grasp.
Lee is ready to move on from that emotionally charged week and believes the A$1.75 million event is a good opportunity to redeem himself.
"Of course, I was very disappointed last week but it's a fresh start and I hope things will be different and better this week," said Lee.
Lee has made a blistering start to the season with three top-10s in four starts. While victory has still eluded him, the 22-year-old is already starting to make his impact in what is only his second season on the Asian Tour.
"I'm enjoying my professional life on the Asian Tour. Obviously it helps that I've also been playing well and the sky's the limit for me.
"I have a good feeling about this week in Perth and I'll try my best to show that I'm capable of winning," said the Korean.
Lee will face a stern test as he takes on the likes of France's Victor Dubuisson and world number 21 Louis Oosthuizen, who is the highest ranked player in the strong field this week.
Dubuisson finished second in the 2014 edition and will be hoping to exact some measure of revenge by getting the job done this week.
"You know, I always like to come back to play tournaments where I had a great result. I came close two years ago, so I want to try again by doing better and win," said Dubuisson.
Besides the field, the Frenchman knows he has to overcome the challenges conditions at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
"The course is not easy at all. We know it's a tricky course. The greens are not easy to read and you really have to hit the ball straight from the tee," said Dubuisson.
Oosthuizen meanwhile believes the unpredictability nature of the sport will throw up several surprises despite being the highest ranked player in the field this week.
"Obviously it's a nice feeling going into the event as the favourite for the week, but again, you've got to play well.
"You've got to hit good shots and there's a lot of good guys in the field," said the South African.
However, with the form he is in, the Major champion does not discount himself from being a genuine contender.
"Golf is a very unpredictable sport and anything can happen. The favourite always wins in any other sport, but golf doesn't work that way.
"But I'm in good form and I'm looking forward to the week," said Oosthuizen.
No fewer than 20 Asian Tour champions will tee up at the ISPS Handa Perth International which will welcomes the return of the Tour's best players to Australia after a seven-year absence.
The ISPS Handa Perth International is the only golf tournament in Australia to be tri-sanctioned by the Asian Tour, PGA Tour of Australasia and European Tour.
