Gavin Green (Mas) – Second Round 70 (-2), Total 137 (-7)
It was a little bit tough. The wind was up and swirling. It was tough to hit a shot. I had a mixture of good and bad drives. Overall I wasn’t in it with my driver. I made a huge up-and-down on my first hole (10th) and that got my momentum going.
I made a couple of birdies and tried to stay patient but lost my cool in the middle of the round but I closed out with a birdie and par so that was good.
It was tough to judge the wind because it was swirling. It was difficult to get the right club. I’m fine with a two-under. I’m going to try and play under par during the weekend and see what happens.
The game plan that my caddy and I have worked so far. I’ll try to attack most of the par fives but I won’t go crazy or aggressive on the other holes. It is always fun to be in contention but there are two more days and there are a lot of good players. I hope my putter stays red hot.
Juvic Pagunsan (Phi) – Second Round 69 (-3), Total 137 (-7)
I had a slow start, same like yesterday but I managed to recover nicely. The weather was bad but I’m very happy with the round. I’m playing very well this week and I’m feeling confident. I’m trying my best to qualify for the CIMB Classic. I need a good result this week. Yes, it was one of my goals at the start of the week.
Settee Prakongvech (Tha) – Second Round 73 (+1), Total 138 (-6)
It was not an easy day because it was very windy. I didn’t expect much because I wanted to play safe. There was not wind yesterday but it was entirely different today so I didn’t expect very low scores.
I misread the greens on a few holes but that’s okay. I’m still in a good position and I’m happy with the result.
Ben Leong (Mas) – Second Round 69 (-3), Total 140 (-4)
It was a funny round. I putted really well. I didn’t hit it that great and it was tough because the wind was swirling. I kept telling myself that par is a good score. Even without this (windy) conditions, you will take par on every hole on this course. Well that’s my mentality.
You need to play smart here. You can hit the perfect shot and get a bad break because it is so firm out here. It is a test of patience, character and attitude here. You can’t get upset over bad shots.
I’m just concerned with my own game. It is coming along. You need to commit to your shots and I guess that’s what’s been holding me back.
