Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship: Blake Windred opens up early lead in China

Blake Windred declared a championship record-equalling 63 to assert the lead.
As he finished the day with a two-stroke head over Junhong Park, windred birdied the final four holes to cap a nine-birdie opening around.
The Australian took advantage of their near-perfect afternoon conditions, cruising with four birdies in six holes to the turn in 32 adding another in the 10th until his finish ensured he’d sleep on the overnight direct.
“I just did not want it to finish,” said Windred, the world amateur No 11. “I was just loving it and I am just shattered it’s ended. “I am quite pleased with the way I played. I think I kind of ticked every target I had place, so it is consistently great. I felt like that I executed every shot .
“I didn’t even realise I birdied the final four until I signed up the scorecard. The nine, I sort of fought getting the speed. I felt like I could have wrapped in a couple more. I am so happy I stayed patient and did not begin to force it since I knew I had the lines. I had been hitting fairways. So, there was always a chance to make the stretch.”
Windred is not getting ahead of himself, although the winner will book a spot at The Masters and The 149th Open season.
“If I was to win, then I’d definitely be playing those majors,” added Windred, who’d originally planned to turn professional following this tournament. “it is a fantastic start, but yeah, we have finally got three rounds to go.
“I guess that is something that I’ve practiced really tough for, like everyone else. I’ve been working hard on all facets of my game, and this week the goal is to win. There’s no sugarcoating itI need to acquire and that is it. There’s no other option.
“I am not likely to have ahead of myselfbut at precisely exactly the same time, why not adopt all of the other stuff and just keep it going. Make a few more birdies tomorrow hopefully.”
South Korea’s Park, playing with with his first AAC, also kept a bogey off his card into his seven-birdie opener, and there is a three-stroke gap into a set of seven players joining third place on four under par.
