Fresh from a career-best finish on Hainan Island last week Grant Forrest is determined to rise further up the Road to Oman Rankings with another strong showing at the Foshan Open.
The Scot was a late addition to the Hainan Open having started the week as a first reserve, but after he fired four rounds in the 60s Forrest went on to claim a share of second place on the Chinese island.
That result has taken Forrest up to 29th place on the Road to Oman, and with just three tournaments left of the 2017 Challenge Tour season the 24 year old now has his sights set on a late-season charge and a place in the top 15.
“I feel really good after last week,” he said. “I was a reserve when I left home on Sunday and if you had told me then that I would finish second, I would probably have taken it.
“I finished two behind in the end which was a little disappointing as it was just one poor swing on the back nine that cost me, but all in all it was a great week.
“It was a season-changing result really. Before Hainan I was trying to break into the top 45 but now I am in with a chance of making the top 15 – so it was a huge week.
“I have heard lots of good things about Foshan and I am really looking forward to playing there for the first time. It is a really big event and there will be lots of points on offer, so it should be good.
“I really like the style of the golf courses in China and I think that they suit my game well. Hopefully I can keep the run going this week too.”
What a performance from @grantforrest93
