Shanshan Feng

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Q. Have you decided to give the rest of the field a chance this year?
SHANSHAN FENG: That's not the case. I mean, when I was on the course, I actually gave my 100 per cent today. My ball-striking was actually very good. I had so many birdie chances. But my putting wasn't really working. I was missing all the short birdie putts and also the par putts, also. So that's why I didn't make too many birdies but a few bogeys. I think even par is not a great score, but I still feel like at least I tried my best.

Q. Lots of people have struggled with the putter today. Are the greens running tricky? Are the pins hard? What is it?
SHANSHAN FENG: I think the first half it was because of myself. I think maybe my posture was a little bit off, and then I think my putting was getting better towards the end. But I didn't have too many holes left when I started to feel like I could putt. Yeah, that was it.

Q. I have to ask you about the second shot on 17. It was unusual.
SHANSHAN FENG: I know. Actually my ball was still on the fairway, but I didn't have a stance because the lip of the bunker was really steep. I couldn't even stand in the bunker and hit. So I had to go left-handed, but then I had to call the rules official to ask if I could use the back of my club to actually hit the ball, and I've never done that, so before I hit it, I didn't even know where the ball was going, but I just gave it a swing, and actually it went like 70 yards. My caddie said, oh, you surprised me, you actually can hit it 70 yards. I was really happy I saved a par there.

Q. Will you try it again in the future?
SHANSHAN FENG: Well, if I have to. But if I don't have to, maybe I won't.
