Zhou’s Thursday: A big score and a broken club

zhouxunshu-nanjing-thursday-09

Zhou Xunshu will be fighting for his life on Friday after shooting a disappointing 8-over 80 Thursday in the opening round of the Sofitel Zhongshan IGC Open in Nanjing, the second stop on the 2009 China Tour. Zhou will need to play extremely well in the second round if he hopes to make the cut in the tournament, which with 144 players boasts the largest, and arguably the strongest, field in the tour’s five-year history.

Playing in gusty winds Thursday, Zhou bogeyed three of the first five holes. After birdieing the par-5 7th, Zhou blew up for a 4-over 7 on No. 8, wasting a handful of strokes trying to get out of a bunker. Zhou settled down after that, and was playing 1-under on the back nine until finishing bogey, double bogey. On the final hole he hit his drive into the trees. On the following shot, he struck a tree with his club, splitting his 6-iron in half. He spent the better part of the afternoon in downtown Nanjing trying to find a replacement iron.

Zhou tees off at 11:50 am Friday. Follow live scoring here. More updates here.

周训书的星期四:糟糕的成绩和打坏了的球杆

星期四在南京索菲特钟山高尔夫公开赛首轮的比赛里,周训书打出了令人失望的80杆,高于标准杆八杆的成绩,这是2009赛季中巡赛的第二战比赛。这也意味着周训书必须在星期五的比赛中打出极其优秀的成绩,才能保证他得以晋级周末的比赛。此战比赛有144位选手参赛,是中巡赛五年历史中参赛人数最多,据说也是实力最强的比赛。

星期四风很大,周训书在前五洞中三洞打出了柏忌。在第七洞五杆洞,周打出了小鸟球,在第八洞为了把球打出沙坑周训书尝试了多次才成功,最后打出了七杆高于标准杆四杆的成绩。这之后周训书稳扎稳打,后九洞的成绩一直在低于标准杆一杆直到最后两洞的柏忌和双柏忌。最后一洞,周训书开球打进树丛,在随后的一杆里,他的球杆打在了树上,把他的六号铁杆打断了。当天下午周训书去了南京市区修补球杆。
