Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - In The News -

Aus­tralia’s Wade Ormsby over­came a one-shot deficit by clos­ing with a two-un­der-par 68 to win the UBS Hong Kong Open.

De­spite a late bo­gey at the last hole, the 37-year-old Aus­tralian could still af­ford to clinch the UBS Hong Kong Open by a sin­gle shot as none of his near­est ri­vals could sur­mount their late chal­lenge to dis­lodge him from the top of the leader­board.

It was sweet re­lief for Ormsby as his last win on the Asian Tour dated back to 2013 and his vic­tory at the Hong Kong Golf Club was also his first on the Euro­pean Tour af­ter 263 starts.

“It feels amaz­ing, mate. I’m just try­ing to hold it to­gether here. Yeah, pretty stoked. Well, not pretty stoked: Very stoked,” said Ormsby. “I played solid all day and I just tried to keep pump­ing it out. Hit a lot of greens. Put­ter wasn't quite be­hav­ing but just played solid. Some­times that's good enough. A bit dis­ap­point­ing to three-putt the last, but it's a tricky pin down there. Any­way, good enough. It's a bit of a weird feel­ing (watch­ing Rafa over that par putt). You don't want to win like that but I'm sure a lot of guys have. I just missed one there, too. I don't know, it's not the way you want to do it, but at the same time, yeah, you take them re­gard­less of how you can get them.”
