CJ Invitational: Rd 4 What They Said

Jyoti Randhawa (Ind) – Final Round 67 (-5), Total 281 (-7)
Start with a bang and end with a bang but I have no idea what happened in between! I had a good ball striking day. I also made a few good putts.
I felt the best out there today and I’m happy with the way I was swinging. I’ll take the positives out of this round and I’ll take it with me until the end of the year.
The 16th was the best birdie. I had a 25-footer and it was up and down of the hill and I made that putt. That really got my juices going. That got me to five-under and it was a comfortable position for me to be in.
I’ve been taking it easy for the last two or three months. For me to come back and finish in the top-five is really good for my confidence.
There are a couple of things that’s been holding me back from getting another win. I made a few swing changes and I wasn’t feeling confident under pressure. Today I did that and it felt good.
You got to have at least three good rounds and one mediocre round to win. I’ve had two or one good round so it is getting there. I’m feeling very good with my swing so hopefully I can hold it until the end of the season.
Kiradech Aphibarnrat (Tha) – Final Round 73 (+1), 282 (-6)
I got off to a good start but I felt pain in my left knee during the closing stages. I couldn’t squat to read the line. That’s why I struggled a lot in the last four or five holes. I even felt a bit of pain when I was swinging and that’s why I hooked two of my shots.
I birdied on 17 and that made me jump up a bit. Anyway, it is a good result but it should have been much better than this because I strike the ball so good this week. I’m going to go home and rest for a week and prepare for the CIMB Classic.
This golf course is very undulating so it gets a bit tiring walking here. I guess that’s why I hurt my left knee as well.
I’m feeling confident with my ball striking. I just have a couple of mistakes with my tempo. But that’s something I can fix when I’m back in Thailand next week. There are a lot of big events coming up so I really want to get ready for these events.
Baek Seuk-hyun (Kor) – Final Round 69 (-3), Total 282 (-6)
I’m happy with the result but I’m feeling a bit disappointed because my plan didn’t quite work out. I was feeling tired during the round and I misjudged a few shots. I changed to a new putter on the first three days but I couldn’t hole my putts.
My old putter wasn’t heavy enough but that was a wrong move! I changed to the old putter again today and I holed so many putts. I’ve been using this putter for the last two years so I don’t think I’m going to change it again until I find a better one.
I need to plan my game better and I need to get fit! When I get too tired, I can’t think and I mess up my shot. I need also need a little bit more luck. I’m feeling very confident and I know that I will win soon.
I’m happy that I’m playing at the CIMB Classic. I didn’t think that I could even have a chance to play at the WGC-HSBC Champions. But if I do get to play in it then I’ll be very, very happy.
Panuphol Pittayarat (Tha) – Final Round 68 (-4), Total 284 (-4)
I played well. I was six-under with four to go but had a bad approach on 16. The pin position was tough. I hit a bad drive on 17 and made two bogeys on 16 and 17. But I’m pleased with how I played in the last two days.
I wasn’t hitting well at the driving range but I scrambled well. I was lucky out there. I did my best and I’m proud with how I played. I should be fine to save my Asian Tour card for next season. I’m just happy with the last two tournaments I played in.
I need to grow up. I need to play some grown up golf. I need more confidence and I need to keep playing well. I think the win is just out there for me to grab it.
