Queen's Cup Rd 3 - What they said

POOM SAKSANSIN (THAI) – THIRD ROUND 68 (-3), TOTAL (-12)
I feel happy. I felt quite the same as yesterday. I have my uncle Piatya caddying for me and I’m able to talk to him. He said just play the game, don’t look at the leaderboard. I said ‘oh, Siddikur is -10’ and he said ‘just hit your shot.’
The most important shot is the shot you’re playing, that’s all. I’ve been hitting it good, trying to hit as good as I can. I’ve been sleeping well in my hotel because I’m tired every day.
I will try to focus on my game, play golf and be happy. If I can finish I can finish as champion, and that’s an if, I will go back home and celebrate with my mum. I won’t think ahead too much.
This is the second time I’m in the last group on Sunday. I won a tournament in Chiangrai in February. Played with Chapchai Nirat and Poosit on the last day. I proved that I can make it, so hopefully tomorrow again.
I’m just going to go back to the hotel, take a bath and sleep. I’m always able to sleep at 10 every night. The round felt like it flowed water, lots of pars, a few birdies and one bogey.

SIDDIKUR RAHMAN (BAN), THIRD ROUND 64 (-7), TOTAL (-11)
It was really a great round, a bogey free round. Seven great birdies. I’m really happy, especially my putting which I got my putting back. My hitting was excellent, overall it was very good.
The first six holes, it didn’t go in but on seven, I got a birdie putt from four feet and then hit another putt from 15 feet and on the last few holes, I managed to get three in a row. It was all down to my putting.
I practiced more on my putting after yesterday’s round. I think that helped me a lot as I got my feel back.
I’m in good form, I feel confident. This is one of my favourite places in Asia. My career started here with a top-10 in 2010 and since then, I’ve played well here. I like this course very much. I’m confident and looking forward to tomorrow.
I’m just going stick to my routine and focusing on hitting the fairways. I’m scared of the rough here as it’s tough to hit from here.
BAEK SEUK-HYUN (KOR) – THIRD ROUND 71 (E), TOTAL (-7)
I played good on the first nine but I couldn’t get it up and down. On the back nine, I had some good chances like on the last hole, hit it to three feet but missed it. I’m happy to come back after the problems with the front nine. Still, I’m five behind but on this course, anything can happen. My tee shot is getting better but I’m not going to just go for it. I want to enjoy it as this course is a tough one.
This is my first time playing with Poom. He’s playing good, he’s short game and putting is really good. He’s a straight guy. He’s got to have a good mind tomorrow if he wants to win it.

CHOO TZE HUANG (SIN) – THIRD ROUND 71 (E), TOTAL (-3)
I played good today, hit it decent and didn’t make a lot of putts. It was nice to make those birdies on 16 and 17. I did make a few silly mistakes. Back in the day, I would have been agitated and lose my focus but I knew I was hitting the ball well enough to make a few birdies. I stayed patient and laughed off those bogeys and it paid off.
I played  a pretty much full schedule on the Asian Tour last year and I learned a lot on what I need to do. A lot of times when I missed the cut and played well and finished poorly, or getting frustrated on the smallest things, it’s something I’m still learning. I think I’m getting better.
I’m feeling quite confident with my game. Same game plan as the first three days and hopefully I’ll get my first top-10 on the Asian Tour tomorrow. It’ll be the same thing, plod away and hope to give myself chances. Hopefully it’ll turn out well.
