Duck sophomore Jonathan Woo opened his Asian fall tour swing with impressive finishes in the Barclay's Singapore Open and Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship the past two weeks.

This week, the Singapore native made the cut in the Barclay's Singapore Open and placed 63rd overall with an eight-over score of 292 (70-71-74-77). Afterwards, he was honored as the event's top amateur.

Inclimate weather forced early round delays, but that didn't stop him from shooting one-under and par scores the first two rounds.

Two weeks ago, he opened his busy month of action in the Asian-Pacific Amateur Championship (23rd-tie, 71-70-75-72) at the Amata Spring Golf Club.

Woo earned his invite as the top-ranked Singapore amateur in the event that featured 120 entrants from 26 countries. He stood in 10th place after the second-day cut, then dropped to 19th after the third day.

His appearance in the event was his second career-wise, after he placed seventh in the inaugural event in 2009.

“It’s been a great season these past five months," Woo said, "winning three out of the four amateur events, and getting to play in the prestigious Barclays Singapore Open.  Being paired with Emiliano Grillo, Richard Sterne and Mars Pucay has shown me the steel needed to play in a pro-event.  I enjoyed myself, although it was very exhausting, both mentally and physically, with the long days at the course.  The experience was priceless.”

Earlier this fall, Woo played two events for the Ducks and placed 20th in the St. Mary's Invitational (74-74-72-220 (+4)) and 65th in the Kikkor Husky Invitational (65th-tie, 78-80-71-239).

Career-wise for UO, he has posted eight rounds of par or better, including a five-under best of 66 from the NCAA Ann Arbor Regional (seventh, 72-66-70 (-5)) to help the Ducks earn an NCAA Championships bid last May.

Looking ahead, Oregon resumes action next term in the Amer Ari Invitational, Wed.-Fri., Feb. 6-8 in Waikoloa, Hawai’i.
