Vincent blog: What a year it has been!

Manila, November 8: Zimbabwe’s Scott Vincent is having an unforgetable rookie season on the Asian Tour. After experiencing the euphoria of a tied second finish in Korea last month, Vincent is hungry for more of such results and he is hoping to continue his good form at this week’s Resorts World Manila Masters.

The Zimbabwean pens his thoughts ahead of this week’s US$1 million event, which is also the richest golf tournament in the Philippines.

“I’ve been taking a bit of a rest and working on my game since Korea as it has been a busy year.

I haven’t played as much as I would have liked but maybe that’s also good as it allows me to recharge and get fresh for this week.

I’m feeling ready to go and I’m looking forward to what the week has to offer.

Playing well in Korea has eased that pressure as that has helped to secure my card for next year.

But looking ahead, I’m trying to get that first win out here and I’m ready to go.

I’m also trying to finish as high as I can on the Order of Merit so that I can get into the bigger events too. I’m looking to wrap the season up very well.

A friend asked me to try my luck out here on the Asian Tour. I didn’t really consider it at first but I’m very glad I did.

There are a few South African guys who play on this Tour and they speak very highly on it.

It’s a brand new experience for me this year, visiting new places and taking in all the sights and sound  of what each country has to offer.

It has obviously worked out very well for me and it’s setting me up very nicely for next year.”
