HONG KONG OPEN


October 17, 2014


Cameron Smith


FANLING, HONG KONG

CAMERON SMITH:テつ Started off, I had four in a row, hitting it really well and putting it really well.テつ Missed a couple of fairways on the way in but made a couple of good up‑and‑downs and continued putting well.テつ So pretty happy.

Q.テつ A start like that makes you feel anything could happen presumably.
CAMERON SMITH:テつ Yeah, that's right.テつ After four holes, you're still getting into the round, so I just tried to keep doing what I was doing.テつ Hitting fairways I think was the key to a good round today.

Q.テつ Anything in particular about those four birdies that made you think this is going to be a brilliant day?
CAMERON SMITH:テつ Well, I holed a pretty good putt on the second hole, the 12th.テつ So that gives you good confidence for the rest of the round.テつ So yeah, I think, yeah, just hitting the fairways and putting well are definitely the two keys today.

Q.テつ Am I right to presume confidence is high with the season you're having?
CAMERON SMITH:テつ Yeah, it's pretty good at the moment.テつ Coming off four Top‑10s, so I'm feeling pretty good about my game and hopefully I can keep it rolling for as long as I can.

Q.テつ Does this feel any different knowing it's a co‑sanctioned event with The European Tour with some big names involved?
CAMERON SMITH:テつ Yeah, a little bit.テつ Obviously the quality of players I think this week is a little bit different to a normal tournament.テつ So sort of stepping up a level is nice, stepping up to some of the best guys in the world and competing against them is a good change.

Q.テつ Presumably that's part of the challenge, that's part of the aim in the career, isn't it?
CAMERON SMITH:テつ Yeah, that's right, on and upwards is the goal.

Q.テつ What do you make of Hong Kong?
CAMERON SMITH:テつ I like it.テつ We got in Monday night.テつ We haven't really had time to have a look around yet, so hopefully I can have a look in the city on the weekend.

Q.テつ And the course itself, a good traditional track.
CAMERON SMITH:テつ Definitely, like I said, just hitting fairways is the keys.テつ Short, you sort of have to think a little bit with your positioning on the fairway, which makes the fairways tougher to hit.
