“It’s been a long time. We did it,”
“It was tough, being in that position is a lot harder than I thought.”
“You always want to be leading going into the final round. You would think leading by seven is great, but it’s hard to stay motivated to continue doing what you’ve been doing.”
Three players then tied in second place at -14 under par, Jimmy Walker and Xander Schauffele, USA, both with final rounds of -5 under par 67, they were joined by Charl Schwartzel from South Africa, who also had a -5 under last round.
