Liang Wenchong had his name in exalted company on the leaderboard through 13 holes at the Caltex Masters yesterday. And he hopes Asia's Dynasty Cup captain Hsieh Min-nan took note. Liang, who lost his way a little near the end to finish five shots behind leader Nick Dougherty, wants to make the Dynasty Cup for the Ryder Cup-style showdown between Asia and Japan at Mission Hills from April 14-17. He has no chance of making it on the Asian Tour rankings - the top eight automatically qualify - so he hopes Hsieh will choose him as one of the four captain's picks in the 12-strong team. Asia beat Japan 16?-7? in the inaugural Dynasty Cup in 2003, also played at Mission Hills. Shocked by the defeat, Japan have sent an SOS to US PGA Tour winner Shigeki Maruyama to bolster their team. 'I really want to play in the Dynasty Cup,' said Liang, who was only two shots off then leaders Colin Montgomerie and Thomas Bjorn at one stage. But successive bogeys at the 14th and 15th holes took the wind out of his sails. 'I played to the best of my ability, but those two bogeys stopped me,' said Liang, who plays mainly on the Japanese Tour. He had five top 10 finishes last season.
