Quek blog: Staying positive

I could not have started any better.
The weather has been very kind to us especially after the rain delay this morning. The course is perfect and the greens are rolling so well. I picked up most of my birdies on the putting greens and I managed to hole quite a few long putts.
I was just looking at my statistics today. I had 20 putts in total which I have never achieve before. It is quite a crazy one for me but we still have three more days to go. I am looking forward to playing well again tomorrow.
The putter was working well for me. I gave myself chances by hitting the ball closer than I normally do. Overall it’s been a pretty good day. I really had fun out there. I was really staying positive all the way and just playing one hole at a time.
It’s always nice to play in your home country with your friends and family coming out to support you. I don’t really get that when I play overseas. It’s a bonus to be able to play well in front of them. At least I made their six hours out there worth it.
Playing well in the first round has definitely put me in a good position going forward. There are still three more rounds to go. I just have to go out there and make as many birdies as I can again. Hopefully I can finish well this week.
