Singh's record best round at golf meet

Zanzeer Singh
Sunday, August 17, 2014

FIJI'S Vijay Singh carded two under par 70 yesterday to record his best round at the Fiji International heading into the final round today.

With a second round score of three over, Singh teed off early in chilly and rainy conditions. He bogeyed the first two holes to drop down the leader board to five over.

However a birdie on the third hole brought back confidence in Singh's game. He scored birdies on the sixth, 13th, 15th and 17th holes to finish 54 holes at one over par 217.

Singh said he made a rough start with the consecutive bogeys.

"It was raining as well so I thought that it was going to be a long day but a birdie on the third kind of settled things down," he said.

"I had a great birdie on the sixth and played pretty solid from there.

"I got away with one or two shots but on the back nine, I really played well.

"You have to be very careful on this golf course because there is so much wind so it kind of puts you on the defence all the time.

"You want to be aggressive at the same time, with the wind you have to control the ball flights so you just can't go on hitting.

"Hopefully in the final round I can play the ball more and see what happens. The rain calmed the course down a little bit and the ball was not running off so it made it a little a bit easier."

Singh is the initial designer of the Natadola course.
