2009 Xiamen

Zhou back in Chongqing after disappointing start to season

Zhou Xunshu reunited with his wife and infant son Sunday night after more than six weeks spent away from home, training in Shanghai and competing in the Dell Championship, the season opener for the 2009 Omega China Tour in Xiamen. Unfortunately, Zhou didn’t have good news to share with his family. After a promising start — a 1-under 71 in the opening round — Zhou followed with scores of 79, 79 and 76 and tumbled to 58th overall (leaderboard) for a payday of RMB 5,375 (US$787) before taxes.

Zhou has a month layoff until the next China Tour event, the Sofitel Zhongshan IGC Open in Nanjing April 23-26. This also means it’s back to the daily grind for Zhou at the Hao Yun Driving Range, where he works as a golf instructor. In his month training at the Silport David Leadbetter Golf Academy Zhou was able to focus solely on his golf game and he said it was the first time in his life he really felt like a pro golfer. But Zhou needs to teach in order to pay the bills.

失望的赛季首战后周巡书回到重庆

在离家六个多星期之后,星期天晚上周训书回到了家中和妻子儿子团聚。过去的这几个星期里,周训书一直在上海训练,并参加了在厦门举办的2009欧米茄中巡赛首战—戴尔锦标赛。遗憾的是周训书没能带给家人一个更好的比赛成绩,在首轮打出了很好的71杆低于标准高一杆的成绩后,周在接下来的三天里打出了79,79和76杆的成绩,最终跌到第58名(领先榜),得到了人民币5,375(美金787)的税前奖金。

离下一站中巡赛比赛还有一个月的时间,下一站索菲特钟山高尔夫公开赛将于4月23到26日在南京举行,对于周来说,这也意味着回到好韵高尔夫练习场继续做高尔夫教练的日复一日的工作。在旭宝大卫利百特高尔夫学院训练的一个月里,周训书可以专心致志地练球,他说这是他到现在为止第一次感觉像个职业球员,但是为了生活,周必须要去教球。

Zhou struggles on Day 2 in Xiamen

Zhou Xunshu began his round Friday near the top-10, but after a birdie-less 7-over 79 he’ll just barely make the cut at the Dell Championship at Orient Golf Club in Xiamen. A double-bogey on the par-4 hole No. 3 set the tone for Zhou’s round, which included another double-bogey and three bogeys. Zhou, now 6-over for the tournament, will try to regroup and secure a respectable finish over the weekend. He’s only five strokes out of the top 20.

厦门第二天周艰难前进

星期五东方(厦门)高尔夫俱乐部戴尔锦标赛,在第二轮开始前,周的排名还很接近前十,但是在今天没有打出一个小鸟,最终打出了79杆高于标准杆七杆之后,周仅勉强晋级。三号洞标准杆四杆的双柏忌定下了周今天比赛的基调,包括今天的另一个双柏忌和三个柏忌。现在总成绩为高于标准杆六杆的周努力重新振作,期望最后能取得满意的成绩。现在他离前二十名只差五杆。
