Wang Blog: Cut streak giving me pressure

Domaine de Bel Ombre, Mauritius, May 6: Korean teenager Jeunghun Wang has not missed a cut since the end of the 2013 season and he certainly does not intend to lose his fantastic streak at the inaugural AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open this week. Read his blog from Heritage Golf Club.

I’m so happy to be here. I feel good and I want to try my best like always to have a good result here. My game is feeling okay although I’ve not been feeling too well. The time change is like five hours to Korea and I’ve been struggling to adapt. I’m always feeling sleepy in the afternoon. I need to overcome the jetlag.

I’m actually feeling nervous about my streak (He has not missed the cut in his last 21 tournaments on the Asian Tour.) I’m trying to make the cut all the time. I feel I have become a better golf over the past one year, so much so that i have improved over the past one year. At every event, all players are good and I’m just trying to learn from the players I play with. Playing in many tournaments has also helped me to improve.

I’m learning more about the golf swing, the short game and mental strength. After the Dubai Open last December (where he finished second to Arjun Atwal), I learned that I need to slow things down when I have a chance to win a golf tournament.

It was my first time leading on Sunday afternoon and I was so nervous. I should have slowed things down and I got too fast with myself. Hopefully I will have another chance at winning and hopefully I can be better at it. If I have one more chance, I think I will get the win.

My ball is not going straight these past few months but I’ve been managing my game well, my short game has been good. I’m happy to be here for the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open this week. It’s such a beautiful place and I hope to continue playing well.
