Marc, from Australia, cruised to victory at the BMW Championship with a last round -4 under par 67, to post a winning total of -23 under par;
“I feel awesome about this, it’s a long week when you lead every day.”
“Backing up that back nine last week at the Dell, when the pressure got put on by Rosie, I reacted with birdies.”
“Just tried to keep doing my own thing and give myself chances, and managed to roll a couple in there at the end which was nice walking up the last there with a bit of a buffer.”
“It’s just nice to put four good rounds on the board and in a really big event.”
“Backing up what happened last week was probably the most satisfying thing for me.”
Tied in second place at -18 under par were Justin Rose, England, -6 under 65 today, and Rickie Fowler, USA, -4 under par 67.
Jason Day claimed fourth place on his own with a final round -2 under 69 giving him a -16 under par total, and he is full of admiration for Marc;
“I think he’s a great player, especially I grew up playing amateur golf against him,”
“I don’t think he may have projected himself standing where he is today when we were sitting on a tee back when I was 16 and he was 18 or so.”
“He’s done a tremendous job, obviously, getting to where he is. I think there’s still a ton left in the tank for him.
