“We just dug in there, I would have loved to seal it off with a couple of pars coming in but sometimes it just tests you.”
“I’m very grateful for how it turned out.”
“I’ve always enjoyed coming to the links, Scottish links, and I’ve had nice success here in Scotland and it’s just really, really nice to be able to stand here with the trophy at the end of the day. It was a long day but somehow I managed.”
“Being in places where you have no control over what is going to happen next all of last year makes it just a lot sweeter and you appreciate it a lot more.”
Romain Langasque, France. carded a final round -4 under par 67 to take third place with a -20 under total.
Andrew Beef Johnson, England, was in the group in fourth place at -19 under, his last round effort of -9 under 62 has earned him a place at The Open
“I want to do so well out here and win tournaments. I think the pressure I put myself under after 2016 was too much. Expectations were way too high.”
“I should have been having fun with it.”
“So a day like today is special. I got to six, seven, eight under and just tried to roll with it and enjoy it. Whatever I finished with, I wasn’t going to be fussed. I’m happy.
