A final round of even par 72 was good enough to give Eddie a wire to wire win at the British Masters with a -9 under par total, in wet conditions;

“It’s brilliant, I said yesterday I wouldn’t know how it felt being in the lead at this event as opposed to another one but now that I’ve won it, it does feel special.”

“The crowds are great, I’ve had some great local support around a beautiful golf course, one I’ve played a lot as a junior and an amateur.”

“So to come and win this event is really special.”

“It was such a tough day with the conditions. I didn’t swing it very well from the get-go and it was really hard then to find it.”

“It was an absolute grind for four or five hours. It just shows how important it is to build a lead when things are going well for you.”

“I’m delighted to go wire-to-wire, especially at this event, I’m over the moon.”

Alexander Björk , Sweden was second at -7 under par, with a final round -1 under 71.

Tied in third place at -5 under par were Lucas Herbert, Australia, -3 under 69 today and Jordan Smith of England with a last round +1 over par 73.

In Gee and Trophy

In Gee carded a final round -6 under par 66 to secure her first win for a while, the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship, with a -16 under total, giving her a three shot victory.

It was an emotional victory for In Gee, she had been suffering from negative comments posted online about her performances;

“I was really frustrated with myself for responding or reacting to those comments on line, and so I think that there was a factor there that pushed me down, and I didn’t want to get back up again.”

“I was kind of scared because I didn’t know how I would act in front of people again, but then I didn’t want to act like somebody else.”

“I always wanted to be true to myself and I wanted to be a genuine person.”

“Before this week, I won 13 times as a professional, I am glad that I am done with the No. 13. I really hate that number.”

Charley Hull from England could not post a good last round, settling for second place at -13 under after posting -1 under 71 today;

“On 16, I hit a decent tee shot. Was in the drainage ditch and had to drop it in the first cut. Hit a really good pitching wedge to the green and couldn’t manage to hold it, and then it was a weird lie.”

“I was in like a little bit of a divot on the 16th green and then chipped it and nearly holed the putt.”

“Oh, well. I’m pretty happy with that result. But this week was a lot of fun. I’ve been playing pretty well so far this season.”

“Had a bit of a quiet spell through like the Women’s British Open and stuff but I feel like my game is in really good condition right now.”

Four Ladies were tied in third place at -12 under par, Sung Hyun Park, South Korea, -3 under 69 today, Danielle Kang, USA, even par 72, Minjee Lee, Australia, -2 under 70 and Ariya Jutanugarn from Thailand with a last round -1 under 71.

Eddie shot -1 under 71 in the third round of the British Open to stay on top of the leaderboard at -9 under par, and will take a three shot advantage into the final round tomorrow.

Eddie would have liked to have holed some more putts today;

“It would have been nice to hole a couple of putts on the back nine for sure.”

“Give myself a bit more daylight.”

“But I’m confident that I can go out there tomorrow and shoot three, four under par and make everyone else’s life very difficult.”

“New position for me, first time I’ve ever gone out there with a three-shot lead on a Saturday so, to have maintained it, I would say is not a failure.”

“Looking back today, I did feel like I hit a lot of nice, solid shots. If I can achieve that tomorrow, I’ll be happy.”

Four players are tied in second place, those three shots back at -6 under par; Jordan Smith, England, -2 under 70 today,  Alexander Björk, Sweden, -4 under 68, Julien Guerrier, France, -2 under 70 and Julian Suri, USA, with his third round of -3 under 69.

Danielle and Charley both carded -4 under par 68 in the third round to stay on top of the KEB Hana Bank Championship leaderboard with -12 under par totals.

Danielle started with two bogeys on the front nine, but good putting got her back in it;

“I got off to a really slow start, my caddie talked me through a lot of shots and kept me together when I was getting annoyed.”

“I’m a leaderboard watcher but he just kept telling me, ‘You’re putting great,’ and that kept me in the game.”

Ariya Jutanugarn, Thailand is one shot back at -11 under par, holding third place following her third round -3 under 69, she missed some shots to drop back;

“I have a lot of things to work on.”

“I missed some shots and started to think about making birdies and catching the leader and that’s not helping.”

“I have to try not to think too far ahead.”

Shubhankar, -6 under par 66 today, Gary and Marc both with -5 under 67, all tied at the top of the CIMB Classic leaderboard with -19 under par totals.

Shubhankar has been in this position before;

“Good thing is that I’ve been in this position before so I know what happens and what my mind goes through, so I’ll just try and relax myself as much as possible.”

“The way I’m playing, I’m pretty sure I’ll play well tomorrow as well.”

Gary said he got a little loose on the back nine today;

“Kind of got a little loose there a little bit on the back nine, maybe ran out of gas a little, but it was nice to finish up with a birdie and get some momentum going into tomorrow.”

Marc also cooled off coming home today;

“Happy with the round, gave myself a good chance tomorrow, so hopefully I can be hot like I was that first 10 holes today.” 

Louis Oosthuizen, South Africa, -7 under 65 today, and Bronson Burgoon, USA, -5 under 67, share fourth place, two shots back at -17 under par

Eddie shot a second round -3 under 69 to take a three shot lead into the week-end at the British Masters with a -8 under par 36 hole total, good putting helping him along;

“It’s a great spot, I felt very comfortable.”

“Frankly I feel like I’m not hitting the ball that well, really. I feel like there’s a lot more for me in terms of that department.”

“Clearly I’ve putted well and I’ve thought my short game has been good. I’ve hung in there in tough conditions over 36 holes.”

“I’m hoping to spend a little bit of time on the range and I’m hoping this weekend for my swing to feel a little more comfortable and then I can play some shots and take even more to the golf course because I’m pretty happy with where the rest of the game is at.”

Sharing second place at -5 under for the tournament are Matt Wallace, England, even par 72 today and Julien Guerrier, France, with his second round incomplete, play having been suspended for the second day in a row due to darkness, Julien is at -3 under through fifteen holes of his second round.
