RIKARD KARLBERG (SWE) FIRST ROUND 64 (-7) – TANJONG COURSE
Q. Thoughts on your round?
A. I worked a lot on my driver and putting lately because my shots into the green have been really good. I needed a balance to my game and practised really hard before coming into this tournament. I made everything a little bit shorter in my routine and stay committed to my shots. It worked out really good for me.
Q. Where did you start this morning?
A. I was on the 16th green.
Q. Are you back to your best form since your victory at the SAIL Open in India?
A. My game felt good all the way since my victory at the SAIL Open (April). My putting in India was incredible and it wasn’t as good in the other events but it seems to be working again. I hope there is another victory around the corner.
Q. Are you looking forward to play the more challenging Serapong course?
A. It is a bit challenging but Graeme McDowell is playing beautifully there. If you can find the fairways and are hot on the greens, you have a good chance of scoring. The key there is to hit the fairways and that will give you a good chance of scoring.
Q. Were you distracted by the rain delay yesterday?
A. You can’t do much about the rain delay. You have to move on and keep yourself motivated. To be honest, I actually had fun during the rain delay. I had the time to catch up with friends on the European Tour who I haven’t met for a long time. That made the time move faster.
