#RWMMasters Preview: What they said

Liang Wen-chong (Chn)

I’m really happy to be back for the Resorts World Manila Masters because this event holds many fond memories for me. That win in 2013 was special as Manila holds a special place in my heart. This event has played an integral role in transforming tourism in the country and has changed the golfing landscape here. It has raised the profile of the Asian Tour in the Philippines and given players playing opportunities which we greatly appreciate. My form has been good this year. I won in Japan and had a couple of good finishes which I can be proud of. It’ll be nice to win again and I’ll try my best.

Mardan Mamat (Sgp)

It’s always nice to be back to a place where you’ve won before. I like this course a lot as it suits my eye and game. I feel like I’m starting to regain my form. I won a local event back home in Singapore recently and that that helps with the confidence. I’m not getting younger and the next stage in my career would be to play on the Seniors Tour. But before that, I would obviously like to win again.

Natipong Srithong (Tha)

This is my third year playing on the Asian Tour and it seems so long now already. But whenever I look back at my first year on Tour and knowing that I won my first event in my rookie year, I’m always very happy. My form is good and I feel I just need to sharpen my short game. If I can do that, I’ve a chance this week.

S.S.P. Chawrasia (Ind)

I’m excited to be back. Obviously last year’s win was my first outside India and it is very meaningful. That win showed that I have what it takes to compete globally and not only in India. I was in contention at this event on several occasions before my victory last year. So to be able to win it and outside of India is indeed very special. The golf course is in great shape. I’m playing well and my confidence is high. I won another event in India earlier this year and it’ll be fantastic to get another win here before the year comes to a close. I finished second at home in India just last week so my form is definitely good.
