#PanasonicOpenIndia Rd 4: What they said

Shiv Kapur (Ind) Fourth round 68 (-4), Total 271 (-17)

It’s an amazing feeling. This victory has not really sunk in yet but when I was walking down the 18th, I was really trying to hold back the emotions. I was telling myself just finish the race, finish the race and it’s just amazing to be able to do it. To be able to win in front of all my friends and family is wonderful. I grew up playing golf here and told myself I got to win at the Delhi Golf Club one day. So no words can actually describe how I’m feeling right now. The reception I got when I was coming up the 18 was just amazing. It was well worth the wait. I was very aggressive the first few days but I had a pretty conservative strategy today. I just wanted to eliminate the mistakes on the card and I started off playing really steady. I had a three-putt on 10 which sort of got me going. I was like come on, I can do this. I birdied 11 followed by 12 and then 14 and 15. When I stood at the leaderboard on 14, I said to myself I got to take the tournament by the throat. I’m not going to play conservatively anymore and I took out my driver. I attacked the flag all the way coming in and that aggressive golf paid off. It’s amazing to have two wins this year and I’ve to thank a lot of people for believing in me and supporting me. The form is good and the confidence is high, so there’s no reason why I cannot win again.

S.S.P. Chawrasia (Ind) Fourth round 69 (-3), Total 274 (-14)

It was a good week. I missed out on another win by three shots but overall I’m playing well and that’s a good sign. I also chasing the Order of Merit title and playing for a place at the EurAsia Cup and that’s why I’m here. There are still four more events left on the Asian Tour for me and all I need is one good week in any of these events and I could be up there.

Ajeetesh Sandhu (Ind), Fourth round 65 (-7), Total 274 (-14)

I’m very happy with how I played all week. I would have taken this score, 14-under at the start of the week. I hit the ball to the centre of the green on 17 and made a very slow putt from there. I misread the greens and left it a little bit too short. But I finished off strongly which was good. This result will help with my movement on the Order of Merit. I’ve been playing pretty well ever since my win in Chinese Taipei and it’s good to see yourself in contention every week.

Chiragh Kumar (Ind), Fourth round 64 (-8), Total 274 (-14)

I started off the tournament with a bang and unfortunately I couldn’t finish off the first day the way I wanted to as I finished with a double and ended the opening round four shots back. Unfortunately I couldn’t get anything into the hole on the second and third day. But today was great as I hit the ball well and putted well. I haven’t had the best of years so far but this finish is really going to move me up the Order of Merit. We got a few good events coming up which will put me in a good mix.
