Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters: What They Said

If I win this week it will be my first Asian Tour win. My driving and putting have been good so hopefully I can continue with this form and become the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters champion.
Last week I played and won in Penang. That course was short and my driving and putting were good. Hopefully I can bring that feeling to this week.
You can see the fairway this year and it is very hard. The greens are fantastic. When Angelo won in 2010, the fairways were soft and new. It will be tougher this year because the fairways are harder.
It is going to be very challenging this year. The course is not easy. I have an advantage playing here because I always spend my time here and practise my short game here. I know how to play all the holes here.
I’m looking forward to win my first Asian Tour title, that’s my target. I think this week will be the closest and my best chance to win if I can play good.

I’m not in form. Sometimes my game is good and sometimes it is good. I’m not sure why. This isn’t an easy course so it is going to be difficult for me. I can’t say that I’m confident to win but I’ll try my best.
The course suits my game but the greens are quite hard. It will be easy if you can find the fairways. But I’m not feeling confident with my game because I’m not hitting it great with my irons at the moment.
I played well last year and I’m trying my best to play well. I hope I can get my best game back. I haven’t changed anything.

I played well in the United States. There was nothing special with my game but everyone in my golf team (University of New Mexico) played well so that kind of boosted the performance of everybody.
The cut-off date for the U.S. Amateur Open is at the end of this week so I need to do well here. I’m only two spots away.
I haven’t played here in a long time but I remember the course from my junior days. I should be fine.
I know I can compete with the professionals. I still have a lot of things for me to learn and I’ll still hang on to my amateur status. I’m not there yet (professional level) but I’m getting there. I still have a lot of work and learning to do - mental wise.  I’m getting close but I’ll give it a little more time.
The course is hard and you have to be really patient. It will be a lot easier if you keep it in play. I would have some advantage with my distance in some holes but not all. There’s a lot of thinking to do this week.

I’ve been home with my wife Claire. It has been a nice break. My form hasn’t been quite there this year. I need some time to practice and my game feels like it is starting to turn up. I always like playing in Malaysia.
My goal is always to try to play in the best tournaments in the world and one of the perfect examples is playing on the Asian Tour. Look at what Thaworn did last year and he had the chance to play in so many big tournaments in the world.

It was a great feeling winning here last year. I like this course but the greens are so much faster compared to the last time we were here. All of us will struggle on the fairways so it will take a lot of patience and thinking about your shots towards the green.
I played in a couple of local events and caddied for my wife! I’ve been quite busy caddying and playing. It is taking a toll on me now and I’m feeling it physically. I’ll just go back and rest after this.
