I played well. Anytime you can shoot under-par on this golf course, I’ll be pretty happy. This course suits my game. Given the size of the fairways, I can’t hit it too far so I’ve to try to hit as many fairways as I can so I always look forward to coming here so that I can get a chance to move up to the top. I started my season in the Avantha Masters and didn’t do as well as I would like to but I’ve been playing well since.  I guess it’ll be sooner or later before I make my breakthrough.

This is my best round ever at Delhi Golf Club and obviously I’m happy. Everything worked for me today. I holed a lot of putts and hit several good shots. I played the par fives pretty well and I guess that was the key today. I’ve been building a lot of confidence with my ball-striking and that’s pretty important around the Delhi Golf Club. The way I’ve played since the start of the season was not to my liking. It has been a while since my last win and you get that itch where you want to win again. I’ve always been like that and I’ve always wanted to win golf tournaments and hopefully it’ll be this week again.

It wasn’t easy out there. It was the most windy round that I’ve ever played in at Delhi Golf Club. The winds were swirling and I got lucky quite a few times today. This is my best score at Delhi Golf Club. I’ve been coming here for so many years and I’ve played so many tournaments out here, so much so that I’ve now learnt how to manage my way around this golf course very well. Losing my Tour card last season was disappointing but I hope to make it up this season with performances like this.

I am happy with the way things are, though I could have had a better score today. I played quite well and had some long putts, like the 25-footer on the fourth. I started with a birdie from 10 feet on first. I had six birdies overall, but also gave away three bogeys. On the eighth, the ball was stuck on the slope of the bunker and on the 10th hole, I three-putted. On the 16th, I went off to the right and had to get back to fairway with a lay-up. The conditions were not all that easy. There was wind on almost all holes and one had to be careful off the tee. The greens were excellent, though I three-putted once. It has been a fair season, though the last two weeks were not so great. But I have been making cuts and I need to consolidate. But I feel I am on the right direction.
