I played decent golf through the week at the Venetian Macau Open but couldn’t make too many putts. I’m happy and I learned a lot of things and will try to use the experience in the next few weeks. I’ve got a week’s break and then I’ll play the Panasonic Open India right through the end of the season in Dubai.
I’m really looking forward to doing well. I’m outside the top 60 and hope to do well in those events to do well and get my ranking back. I feel I can still do something as overall, my game is good. I’ll be looking for some top-fives and maybe even secure a win.
I missed all the co-sanctioned events cut by one shots which was disappointing. A bit unlucky here and there and I guess it’s part of the game. I learned a lot from those events and I hope to use the experiences well in the near future. Just one good week and I will keep my card on the Asian Tour.
I believe in myself. I don’t have any doubts at all. I’m trying to do a lot of things and I have the belief. When I don’t have doubts, I can hit good shots. When I have doubts, I’ll miss shots. That’s what I’ve been learning this season.
Delhi Golf Club is one of my favourite courses on the Asian Tour. I’m going to try to do well there. I have good memories there and it’s one of the golf courses where I have done well in the past.
It’s one of the courses which suit my game. On that course, I have a chance to win.
At the SAIL-SBI Open, I was in the lead at the halfway stage and got unlucky because of the rain. I have played good golf in Delhi Golf Club and my goal is to do well at the Panasonic Open India.
I’ll also be going back this week to do my visa for Thailand. I’ve got a problem as I have to get visas for every event which is quite tough. This year, I’ve missed some tournaments because of visa problems in the past. But after getting my Thai visa, I’ll all set for the rest of the year on the Asian Tour and my mind will be free of those worries.
Wish me luck.
