Now I’m in with a sniff. I managed to get some rhythm on the greens and made some good putts. I tried to focus on getting back to even-par yesterday and tried to push myself to make a few birdies coming in. I’m happy with the way I fought back.
You got to keep it on the fairways and it is easier said than done especially when the wind starts to pick up. Whoever can keep the ball in play the most will probably walk away with a big smile.
I’m happy that I fought back hard after yesterday’s disappointment. I’ve been fighting a very stiff back and sore shoulder. I’m going to continue to fight. It was nice to get my putter hot. I didn’t hit the ball that great. I chipped in a couple of times and holed some nice putts. It is important sometimes when you are not at your best to scrape through.
I’ve had a long relationship with the Delhi course. It wasn’t very friendly at the start but that’s turned around in the last three or four years. The feeling here now is just fantastic.
There’s no pin position on the golf course where we haven’t seen before. There won’t be any surprises here. I’m quite comfortable out there and hopefully I can play well. I would like to be at 12 or 13-under but after yesterday’s round, I will take where ever I am now.
Ends.
