Veteran South Korean Kang Wook-soon is a big fan of Fanling, especially its trees. Kang, the last Asian player to win the open (in 1998), uses the many trees around the course as targets. 'I enjoy playing this course,' the 41-year-old said after finishing the day at five under, three shots off the leader, KJ Choi. 'The fairways are tight with big trees all around. I use them as targets. I like playing mature courses and this is similar to my home course in Seoul.' Kang was lethal with his putter yesterday, sinking everything within 10 yards. 'A lot depends on your putting here and today I was spot on,' he said.
