Kumar blog: Pain free

  • SHARE
Taipei, September 13: Chiragh Kumar shot into prominence when he contended at the 2011 Hero Indian Open before finishing second. The result earned him an Asian Tour card for the following year but an ankle injury held him back from playing his best.
Playing injury-free at the Yeangder TPC, Kumar enjoyed two consistent rounds for a seven-under-par 137 total. In this blog, he talks about struggling with a flu and talks about his solid round.

I’m happy with my round. It is tough out there and it wasn’t easy. It was windier so it was tough to control the ball. The greens are quite hard so I’m pretty happy with how I played.
I played solidly for two days and I want to continue my form. It is not an easy golf course. It is a thinking golf course. I made a long putt on the first hole for birdie and that kept me going. I made a bad chip there and I’m thankful I made that putt.
I’m feeling better than yesterday. I’m going back to rest now. I don’t have any energy to practice.
My ankle is feeling okay (injured his right ankle about a year and a half ago). I’ve been feeling better and I’m able to put in solid practice. Hopefully the pain won’t come back. I’m feeling confident for the next two days.
Ends.
