Oh So Close: Late bogeys keep Zhou out of Volvo China Open

zhouxunshu_chinaopen_qualifyingThe top three would advance to the prestigious Volvo China Open and Zhou Xunshu found himself tied for third place with three holes to play Wednesday in the second and final round of the Mid-China Qualifying tournament at Shanghai Silport Golf Club. But after bogeys on hole Nos. 16 and 18, Zhou found himself one stroke out of contention. The China Open would have to wait for another year.

“It’s disappointing, and I made some mistakes,” Zhou said, “but I feel very good about the way I am playing heading into the Omega China Tour season. I have a lot of confidence right now and I look forward to playing in Xiamen.”

Zhou added, “I’d really like to thank my coach Michael Dickie and the Silport David Leadbetter Golf Academy for taking me in and letting me train in Shanghai for the past five weeks. It’s been a huge help to my game.”

Zhou was on a flight headed for Xiamen just four hours after finishing his round in Shanghai. He tees off at 7:30 am on Thursday in the opening round of the Dell Championship at Orient Golf Country Club in Xiamen, the first event of the 2009 Omega China Tour. Follow live scoring of the event here.
