Matthew Che­ung’s fi­nal score of 13 over par in the HONMA Hong Kong Open doesn’t tell the full story of his over­all per­for­mance. He pro­duced some sub­lime golf to en­sure he was the only Hong Kong player and the only am­a­teur to make the cut in the na­tional pro­fes­sional open. He did that with rounds of 71 and 70 on the open­ing two days to en­ter the week­end one over par.

Af­ter missing the cut in his Open de­but last year, Che­ung was just happy to be play­ing the tour­na­ment again af­ter win­ning the lo­cal qual­i­fier last month. He is prim­ing him­self for the PGA Tour of Aus­trala­sia’s qual­i­fy­ing school in early De­cem­ber and will also at­tempt to qual­ify for the Asian Tour.
