Yanji, Day 3: Eat your greens


Zhou Xun Shu followed a disappointing second round 7-over 79 effort with a 73 on Saturday, putting him at 11-over and tied for 27th place heading into the final round of the China Tour’s Yanji Golf Championship on the Mountain Course at Yanji Harangang Golf Resort. If he manages to squeak into the top 20, Zhou might be able to break even financially for the events. Yanji is located in a remote part of northeastern China near the North Korean border — flights to the city aren’t cheap.

Not even the tournament leader, Chen Xiaoma at 1-over, is under par after three rounds. Zhou, and many other golfer, blame the course’s undulating greens for the high scores. Some are fast, some are slow, and they all are hard to read.

“It’s so easy to three putt here,” Zhou said. “I missed a lot of birdie putts today.”

Zhou tees off at 9:42 am on Sunday. Follow all the action with live scoring here. The official Omega China Tour site has coverage in English. Sina also has good coverage in Chinese.
