Angela carded a final round -3 under 68 to win The Evian Championship in France with a tournament total of -12 under par. The 40-year-old never thought it would take this long to get one, after losing in a play-off 15 years ago;
“I would have laughed, No way, it’s going to happen before.”
“I didn’t know at the time how close I was, it was only my third year and I had no idea what I was doing, to be perfectly honest.”
“I’m so happy for everybody at home, everybody that’s cheered for me and never gave up on me.”
“I mean, God is funny. He catches you off guard just when you think that maybe you’re done. It’s amazing.”
“I’m not thinking that Amy is going to do what she did. Nobody does. I thought I had lost at that point.”
“For the longest time, I thought I was a major winner. I thought I was good enough. Not getting it, doubt starts creeping in, to say the least.”
Amy Olsen, USA, missed a six-foot putt, to get into a play-off, her last round +3 over 74 a dismal effort, she shared second place at -11 under par with, Austin Ernst and Mo Martin, both from the USA, and Sei Young Kim, South Korea.
Amy was disappointed but spoke about the positives;
“It’s disappointing to finish like that, I committed to every shot and did everything I could.”
“I had a great week. I have so many positive things to take away from it.”
“This is my best finish I believe in a major, so that’s always a positive.”
