#UBSHKOpen Rd 4: What they said

Wade Ormsby (Aus), Fourth round 68 (-2), Total 269 (-11)

It feels amazing, mate. I’m just trying to hold it together here.  Yeah, pretty stoked.  Well, not pretty stoked:  Very stoked. I played solid all day and I just tried to keep pumping it out.  Hit a lot of greens.  Putter wasn’t quite behaving but just played solid.  Sometimes that’s good enough.  A bit disappointing to three-putt the last, but it’s a tricky pin down there.  Anyway, good enough. It’s a bit of a weird feeling (watching Rafa over that par putt).  You don’t want to win like that but I’m sure a lot of guys have.  I just missed one there, too.  I don’t know, it’s not the way you want to do it, but at the same time, yeah, you take them regardless of how you can get them.

S.S.P. Chawrasia (Ind), Fourth round 72 (+2), Total 272 (-8)

I was playing well today.  I start very good, and then made a triple bogey on nine and from then on, I kept dropping shots.  But overall, I managed to make a comeback. I had a couple of putts missed, but that’s all right.  It’s part of the game. There are three events more to play and there’s a good chance for me on the Asian Tour Order of Merit. It’s not over yet at least for the Order of Merit title.

Paul Peterson (Usa), Fourth round 67 (-3), Total 270 (-10)

It was fun out there.  Really enjoyed it.  Beautiful day here in Hong Kong.  A little bit different than the first few days; a little bit of stormy and cloudy, which I’ve never seen, so back to its typical self. I had another solid round going, another bogey free, which always feels good.  I was just happy with how many quality putts I hit coming down the stretch.  I mean, any one of those could have gone in.           I think that’s the difference some weeks whether you top five or win.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get those to go in coming down the stretch, but I hit quality putts and you can’t ask for much more than that.

Miguel Angel Jimenez (Esp), Fourth round 63 (-7), Total 272 (-8)

I played very solid, very solid from green to tees.  I played really, really good.  I made four-under par on the first nine and three-under par on the back nine. I’m very happy.  In the end I make a couple of birdies.  I holed like a 10-foot putt on 17 and another 10 foot-putt on 16.  Played very well.  Particularly hole No. 12, I hit the ball like three foot from the hole, beautiful but I missed the putt. I played really, really well today. I love to come here.  This golf course always makes me feel good because, you know, you need to play the game.  It’s not only about to hit hard.  You need to control the ball. Of course I’m having fun.  I’ve been hitting the ball very well, and today it was moving better than the previous days, and there is the score.

It was a new experience, and playing with these European Tour guys and with some of the top-10 players in the world, players was pretty cool.  I could stand on the same greens, same range and play with them.  It makes me inspired, as well.  I was actually kind of disappointed I wasn’t hitting as well as Manila, but I still had a great week and I’m still satisfied with it. I think I’ve been just really steady, just always confident all year long.  I don’t know, it’s really hard.  I’m not saying it hard for me to miss a cut but being confident was I think key for me to not miss the cut.  I had a few times I almost missed the cut but I didn’t give up and came back.

It has not been a very good week. I’m not very happy with the weekend.  But it’s part of golf, I guess.  You play some good weeks and you have some bad weeks. It’s just not a very good weekend, that’s all. It’s only my first time here, and you know, I think I did okay the first two days.  The last couple days, I just didn’t finish well. If S.S.P. goes ahead and wins, you can’t do anything about it.  He’s playing well. I’ll just move on to the next event in Mauritius. I’m playing most of the events on the Asian Tour. I’m going to do my best in the last three and try to finish strong.
