It’s been a topsy-turvy week so far for American Megan Khang. The Massachusetts native did not arrive in Singapore until Tuesday morning after flight issues kept her grounded in the United States for an extra day. That delay also meant less time getting used to working with caddie Missy Pedersen, who picked up Khang’s bag after her regular caddie was unable to travel.
“(Missy and I) really haven't had a full day until yesterday together. And so we've just kind of been chatting along,” said Khang. “I obviously know her usual player, Brittany Lincicome, and so we've just been kind of sharing some funny stories that we've had and really trying to keep our minds off of things.”
Add in the stifling Singaporean heat and it’s no small feat that Khang is just one stroke off the lead heading to the weekend at the HSBC Women’s World Championship.
“I think I'm just taking it shot by shot and really trying to conserve my energy in between shots, because this is a tough golf course, and it's both challenging weather-wise and performance-wise,” said Khang, who has just two bogeys over her first two rounds. “I'm just trying to take it easygoing and, again, stay patient out there because you really just got to stay within yourself and not get ahead of yourself, because this course does have some tricks up its sleeve.”
