What They Said

LIN WEN-TANG (TPE) – THIRD ROUND 66 (-6) TOTAL 208 (-8)

 

My putting worked for me. I made 29 putts and returned with six-under so I can’t complain. I couldn’t quite predict the speed of the greens. I thought it would roll fast but it didn’t and I missed a couple of short putts for birdie.

 

My short game was excellent. All my birdies were close but I couldn’t believe it when I missed a very short putt for birdie on the 17th hole.

 

My game is now very good from my driver, iron to my putting. I just have to be wary of the green speeds and if I can do that, I’m confident of winning.

 

Hsu (Chia-jen) is a young player. I know many young players get good scores on the first two days but it is the last two days that are important. He also played in the last group and might have been nervous.

 

I need to win a tournament because I told many of my friends that I will win a tournament every year and so far I haven’t won anything! Hopefully that will change tomorrow.

 

HSU CHIA-JEN (TPE) – THIRD ROUND 75 (+3) TOTAL 209 (-7)

 

I couldn’t estimate the green speeds and that let me down. I shot a bogey on the last hole and was disappointing because I could have tied for the lead. I hit it right at the edge of the pond and couldn’t go for the green so I opted to punch the ball out.

 

I was also struggling with my stamina. I was feeling tired out there and it affected my game.

 

This is a very important tournament for me as I’m currently fourth on the Order of Merit. I want to secure a ticket on the Asian Tour next year and this is my best chance of winning. I’m going to try and do just that tomorrow.

 

Lin Wen-tang is Chinese Taipei’s top player and it would be great if I could defeat him for the title. Many young players look up to him and to be able to beat him to the title would be wonderful.

 

ZAW MOE (MYN) – THIRD ROUND 73 (+1) TOTAL 213 (-3)

 

My driving was horrible and it caused my round. I could have closed the gap on the leader but my driving let me down.

 

I have to work on that to improve on my standings. Anything can happen in golf but I’m only going to think about my game.
