Pattaya, Thailand, July 31: Read what Chan Shih-chang and others have to say following the final round of this week's King's Cup presented by PTT Group.
Chan Shih-chang (Tpe)
Three-under-par 67, 12-under-par 268 total
I was actually feeling very nervous when I started my round. I knew it would be a very close fight as there was little separating the leaders at the start of the day. I told myself to play my own game and not look at the leaderboard too much so that I’ll not feel so nervous. The greens are very challenging this week and it was important for me to get most of my shots onto the fairway. I did most of that today. It was a close battle all the way until the 16th when I knew I had a chance. Words cannot describe how I felt when I sank that last putt. It has always been my dream to win on the Asian Tour and I did it today. All these would not have been possible without the support from my sponsors including the Yeangder Group and my family. The future is bright and I can only look forward from here.

I didn’t really set any targets for myself when I started my round today. I’ve always been telling myself that the key to a good round is to relax and not put too much pressure on myself. If I can play my best, the result will come. I thought I had a good chance coming in as I was really hitting the ball very well. I reminded myself several times during the round not to hit into the bunkers and I managed to do that today. If I was destined to win this week, I would be holding the trophy now. But that’s golf. It has been a great week and I cannot ask for more.

I’m very pleased with how I played today although I felt let down by those two bogeys on five and 16. When I eagled six, I felt like my game was back on track and I was ready for the charge. I did that right until 13. I could not find any more birdies after that and that bogey on 16 all but left me out of the running for the title. But it’s okay. This result is better than what I had expected and I can only look forward. Hopefully, this result marks the start of better things to come for me and I will continue to do my best.

I’m happy this is my second top-10 finish after the True Thailand Classic. I think Thailand is lucky for me. I’m glad this result has given me lots of confidence going into Europe, starting from the Czech Open. When you keep shooting under-par especially when it’s windy out there and when you’re in the last few groups, that builds lots of confidence in a player. Hopefully, I’ll be back in the winner’s circle very soon.
