Life is a lot easier when you play badly and then all of a sudden you get in contention and win one. No one gets on your back. When you finish runner-up seven times, everyone is asking, 'Why aren't you winning?' It's much more fun when you jump into a win out of the blue. It's a much tougher game when you play consistently well.

Carlsberg Malaysian Open

Entry Date:
Feb 22, 2004

Padraig finished with  a level par 72 in the final round of the Carlsberg Malaysian Open. A bad start of three over par after six holes put paid to any chance of a high finish but four birdies on the way home is something to build on for the first big event of the year, the Accenture World Matchplay Championship. I didn't give myself much of a chance this week, my game is good but it's typical early season stuff, just need to cut out the silly errors!"
