“I came in with a bit of respect. I showed some respect and got some respect back.”
“There were a couple of times where I almost walked away with a bogey but I made the up-and-down.”
“I was just cool. I’ve heard about this golf course so many times prior to this trip.”
I’ve played a lot of golf at the beginning of this year in South Africa. The courses were way different from South African courses.”
“I like this area where you need to keep it straight and hit good iron shots to have good birdie putts.”

There are five players tied in fifth place at -5 under par, Indian duo SSP Chawrasia and Sanjay Kumar recorded rounds of 67, along with Australian Terry Pilkadaris and South Korea’s Jeunghun Wang.
