“I’m a bit emotional, to be honest, you’re never sure whether you’re going to be able to do it again.”
“Until now my emotions have felt really under control all day which is what I’ve been working hard on.”
“I was just trying to hit fairways and stick to my game-plan and hit it in the right places.”
“I’ve got a bit of a process that I’m going through with my golf swing and I’m starting to see better shots.”
“The seven iron into 17 is probably one of the best shots I’ve ever hit.”
Leader for three rounds a disappointed Sergio Garcia, Spain, could only post a last round -2 under 70, for second place at -12 under par;
“To shoot 64 in the last round, the greens were a little bit softer today but still, you had to go out there and do it. It’s not that easy.”
“I’m thrilled for him, he had a bad Ryder Cup at Hazeltine and he struggled a little bit, he’s been playing much better this year.”
Home player Louis Oosthuizen, shot -3 under 69, to capture third place at -11 under par.
