It wasn’t the fairy-tale fin­ish to the EFG Hong Kong Ladies Open that Hong Kong num­ber one Tif­fany Chan had hoped for at Fan­ling. The lo­cal star teed off in the fi­nal group af­ter en­ter­ing the last day within three shots of the lead but strug­gled to build any mo­men­tum be­fore fin­ish­ing seven shots adrift in a tie for sev­enth.

“I think I disappointed the au­di­ence and a lot of my friends and fam­ily, but at the end of the day I still have a lot of years to win this tour­na­ment,” said Chan, who won the event in 2016.

“I think I did a good job on the first two days, but I couldn’t fin­ish it off. I found it re­ally hard to get mo­men­tum go­ing out there, and I bo­geyed my sec­ond hole which was un­ex­pected be­cause I drove it next to the green.

“I just couldn’t hold my emo­tions as good as the last two days, but I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to the U.S. Open, so I bet­ter calm my­self down.”
