Yusaku Miyazato (Jpn) – Second Round 64 (-7), Total 131 (-11)
I’ve had a perfect two days. It is unbelievable. I can’t believe it. I’m really enjoying my time here in Myanmar. I got up at 4am today and it is too early but luckily I had a good score!
My irons are good and the tempo is good. My putting was also really good. I really managed my round really well the last two days. I need to stay sharp with my irons and putter during the weekend.
I hit it close on some holes today and every time you do that, you expect a low round. I’m playing with very good condition at the moment and feeling very confident. I’m aiming for 20-under-par this week. Hopefully I can reach that target.

I took advantage of the conditions in the first five holes then it got the same again. I started well by making three quick birdies. I was on a roll but I wasn’t playing my best because I was I was quite cautious and couldn’t take advantage on some birdies holes because I was in the rough from the tee box.
I struggled with the wind out there. I felt there were more birdies and got a little bit frustrated not being able to have any close putts coming in. The wind was blowing and it wasn’t an easy day so I’m happy with my round.
It is always nice to be right there. As long as I’m in the final group or there or there about, it will be good. It is always nice to be near the top of the leaderboard and see how everybody else is doing.
K.T. Kim (Kor) – Second Round 69 (-2), Total 135 (-7)
It isn’t that bad but my tee shot was better in the first round. My putting and iron shot is not bad so I hope it can keep going into Saturday and Sunday. The third round will be very important because it will tell if I will have a chance on the final round. Maybe if I shoot four-under then I will have a chance to win.
Miguel Tabuena (Phi) – Second Round 69 (-2), Total 136 (-6)
I’m still hitting it pretty solid off the tee. Overall I’m happy with how I’ve been striking the ball. I just need to make more putts and hit it closer with the wedge. I’m struggling with my wedge.
If I stick to my game plan, those shots will come so it is just a matter of patience and making more putts. I was hoping to get less wind especially on the par five 11th which I bogeyed. I misjudged the wind and that cost me a bit.

I can’t get ahead of myself. That’s the key. I’ve been getting ahead of myself the past three weeks and it didn’t do me any good. I’m not going to force anything. There’s a fine line when you can attack and when you can’t.
Sihwan Kim (Usa) – Second Round 70 (-1), Total 136 (-6)
I had a good plan and executed it alright. I had a good two days. I didn’t know I was going to get into this week. I’m just happy I’m the last guy to get into the field. I got here on Monday night and prepared for it.
I’ll play the best I can and whatever the result it gives me, I’ll take it. With the wind today, the course is playing a bit tougher. It has been pretty good the last two days and if I can keep it up then I think I should be alright.
