IN-FORM WIES­BERGER TAR­GETS WIN IN SHANG­HAI

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Bernd Wies­berger ar­rives in Shang­hai in a rich vein of form and, af­ter a run of near misses, hopes he can fi­nally land a first Euro­pean Tour ti­tle of the sea­son at the WGCHSBC Cham­pi­ons. The Aus­trian has had four straight top-10 fin­ishes in his last four events, fin­ish­ing sec­ond at the Bri­tish Masters and the KLM Open. Now he hopes he can make the most of his im­pres­sive form by se­cur­ing vic­tory in China. He said: “I’ve played well in the last few Euro­pean Tour events and I’ve been up there in the last cou­ple of groups on a Sun­day, so I’m feel­ing good. “I need to keep my mo­men­tum go­ing on and around the greens but I feel like I’m hit­ting the ball nicely enough to make a cou­ple of birdies. “I en­joy this course. It feels like it suits my eye off the tee. “I also ended up play­ing well here last year so I’m look­ing for­ward to this week.”
