“They just have a very special bond and relationship, and they have for a long time.“

“They had a very, very good day today,  and it’s nice to see Francesco, he’s played in two Ryder Cups and he’s never been the guy that’s right at the front of everything, but he certainly has stood up today and showed why he won an Open Championship and why he’s a force to be reckoned with in the world of golf.”
