I started really well today. Hit the ball good. It’s a tough course to pitch at. The par-five are the key here. You got to get on the fairways and get it up on the greens. It’s not too bad to chip at. I’m really pleased. The greens can be really challenging here. You got to read the grains and a little bit of intuition helps too. But I’ve been coming back here long enough and I have a feel of what’s going on. I won an event in Singapore before coming here so I’m feeling good. It’s nice to come straight here and get back into it. We’ll see how it goes but things are going well so far.

Second round Two-under-par 70, Nine-under-par 135 total

I played okay. Although it was not as good as yesterday, it’s still alright as I’m in a good position. I did not hit the ball that good but my putting was okay. I need to be sharper over the weekend to give myself a chance.

Second round Four-under-par 68, Eight-under-par 136 total

I did pretty much everything right today except for that bogey on 15 which I three-putted. I’m in a good position and the key is to continue to enjoy myself out there and play my own game. Mentally, I was more composed as compared to yesterday. I was feeling more calm and was not distracted easily especially on the greens which can be tricky. It’s still a learning process for me but overall, I’m headed in the right direction.




Danny Chia (Mal)

Second round Four-under-par 68, Six-under-par 138 total

I’ve been driving the ball well which probably one of the key reasons why I've done well. The greens are very tricky here. I had lots of birdie opportunities but could not read them correctly. My two wins on the Asian Tour both came from Taiwan and I’m hoping to extend that proud record here. I need to sharpen my approach shots as they are not as deadly as I want them to be.
