I found the rhythm back in my swing and I just stuck with that and decided to do the same thing today. I was a bit tentative on the first hole but I told myself, let’s do what I did yesterday. I put my head down and made three great swings, three great putts and played those three holes fabulously well. After that, I knew what I needed to do and just stuck to that game plan. It all started with all the fun I had off the golf course. I was on my ATV (All-terrain vehicle), tried to jump it and it came back on me and I broke my leg. I took about three months to recover. It was a good time off but I’m back and playing well and that’s all that matters.

I putted really well and gave myself several my birdie chances. I took advantage of them and managed to put myself into a good position heading into the weekend. It has been good so far and I hope this good form will continue.

It felt really good, especially making those three birdies coming home. It has been a long time since I last made 11 birdies in a round so I’m really happy. The difference between yesterday and today was the putts. I managed to make lots of putts from 10-15 feet. I got a little annoyed with myself after that double bogey on 11. But my caddie told me to calm down and what’s past is past. I changed my mindset and managed to go on that birdie run. I played really well at the start of the year but struggled in Europe. I’m still learning but I’m on the right path now.

It was a fantastic feeling. Making seven birdies in a row. I’ve never done something like this before. The closest I got to this was in Johor several years ago where I made five birdies. I knew it was possible to break the course record. But it started to rain when I was approaching my finishing holes. I hit my tee shot went into the bunker on 17 and later got a bogey there. On the last hole, I missed the fairway and it was tough reading the line there. I feel very happy. Before coming here, I work hard on my fitness and also my game. It’s a million-dollar event this week and it’s important I do well as that will help my position on the Order of Merit.

I couldn’t really get it going especially on the greens. I hit several good shots to the pins but didn’t manage to convert them. I lost some ground today but there still two more days and I know this course pretty well and it’s not over yet. I’ve scored low here before and I don’t see any reason why I cannot do it again. Every time I play at home that I’ve to do something special. You must have the ability to bounce back when you are playing at the highest level like this. I have done it before and will do it again.
