Daniel Chopra wants to forget about snakes and concentrate on ladders instead. The Swede had a close encounter with a snake during last year's event and made sure he stayed out of the trees during his four-under 66 yesterday. 'I remember the incident with the snake last year and have kept away from the trees pretty much so far this year,' he said. 'I feel very good on the course and very content about my game at the moment.' Chopra finished 150th on the PGA Tour in the US this year and when asked if he preferred ladders to snakes, he said: 'That's exactly what I'm looking for - one rung at a time.'
