Yangon, February 3: Read how contenders rate their chances at this week's Leopalace21 Myanmar Open.
Mithun Perera (Sri)
I came very close to winning my first Asian Tour then and I remembered I was five shots off the lead at the start of the day and made a strong charge but lost by one shot.That was one of my best runs on the Asian Tour and I was really hoping I could win then. But it’s okay, I’ve another chance again this week and hopefully, I can do it. I had a short practice round and I know the kind of shots I should hit on this golf course again. I feel that as long as I stay focused and patient, I should be in contention again.
Chawalit Plaphol (Tha)
I’m going to defend my title well. I’ve won on this golf course and I’m confident I can do that again. The course conditions are more difficult as the fairways are softer and the greens more firm but I’m in good form and it should be okay.
Shintaro Kobayashi (Jpn)
I finished tied for fourth in Singapore which was one of my best results in a long time. That was my first event and to start off the season that well is really good for my morale and confidence.This is my first visit to Myanmar and it’s a very beautiful country. Hopefully, I can take back even more beautiful memories come Sunday
K.T. Kim (Kor)
I’ve been working hard on my putting as I didn’t putt well in Singapore. But I had a good rest and I’m ready to play well again. I’ve heard so much wonderful things about this country and I’m happy I’m here now. I’m determined to put up a strong performance and contend for the title this week.
Younghan Song (Kor)
Beating Jordan was like a dream come true. But it’s a new week now and my focus will be to do well again.
Zaw Zaw Latt (Myn)
I’ve been here on the golf course since Sunday practicing hard. It’ll be nice if I can give them a good fight and stay in the mix this week. I’m in very good form and I hope it continues that way.
