Pigem blog: A win is near

May 26: Carlos Pigem talks inching closer to a first Asian Tour win.

I feel good. This is the first time I’m here but I like this country. People are kind, the course is nice so I like it. This is a tricky golf course and you need to find fairways to have a chance to attack the green. If you go to the rough, it will be tough to have a low score.

I like Asia and I’ve felt comfortable here since my debut season. I like playing in warm conditions. I’ve enjoyed a good season so far. I’ve made all the cuts and finished seventh in Thailand. I was disappointed with my result in Mauritius because I was leading in the tournament at one point.

If I continue to do what I’ve been doing then I think the win is near. I’ve had some chances to win so that’s pretty good.

I think I kept my Asian Tour card for next year. If you do good early in the year then you have less pressure to play the rest of the tournaments. It is going to be interesting because you always try to win a tournament. My goal is to win one tournament this year.
