“I don’t try to push, I just try to enjoy playing my favourite golf course.”
“So pushing, I have that experience with pushing.”
“I felt like I played a little bit better than yesterday. It was a bit more difficult today with the wind, especially the first nine. I struck the ball a little bit better and I made a few long putts today, same as yesterday.”
“Once in a while when a putt drops in you catch momentum and you can make another three or four birdies coming in, like it happened today.”
“I think I made only two pars on the back nine.”

“It’s good, my game feels in good shape. I’m hitting a lot of good iron shots and giving myself a lot of chances.”
Kiradech has also had a good start to the season, and is making putts;
“It’s been great, it’s a very good start to the 2017 season.”
“I had a couple of good up-and-downs and a lot of good putts today.”
