Arnond Blog: Samui is beautiful

The Santiburi Samui course here is beautiful and has really nice surroundings. There are a lot of things to do when you’re not on the golf course. It’s like a vacation tournament for most of us!
I’ve been playing pretty solid the past few months. Maybe on some weeks, I’ve not hit the ball as well as I should have but I worked on it in the past week and it’s feeling good.
I finished second (in the ICTSI Philippine Open several weeks ago) in my last tournament but that is in the past. I’ve got to look ahead now and we’ll see how it goes here.
I feel like I’m getting more and more experienced now on the Asian Tour and feel that I’m more patient on the course which is the key out here. You’re going to miss some greens this week as it’s windy and the elevation changes a lot. I’ll also need the putter and short game to work well here.
Anytime you can win a trophy from the King or Queen, it’s going to be very special. I’ve won the King’s Cup already in 2012 so it’ll be a good collection to have the Queens’ Cup as well.
Today, I’ll be going to out to work on my putting a bit. The greens can be tricky out there with the mountains having an effect on the lines. That’s something else that I need to look out for this week.
