“I played pretty solid and it wasn’t easy because it was windy.”
“I kept pushing the whole day. I knew I had to make a lot birdies to catch the leaders. I made a lot of birdies on the front nine and just continued on the back.”
“To be honest, I wasn’t thinking about the leaderboard. I wanted to set a target in my mind and try to achieve it.”
“On the 13th I knew I was somewhere near the leaders but on 16 I knew I had a two-shot lead. I told myself if I can make two more birdies, that would give me a good chance to win.”
“The last two months have changed my life. I’ve been a member on the Asian Tour for a while and I will continue to be a member on the Asian Tour.”
“I’ve always dreamt of winning and now I’m a two-time winner on the Asian Tour and European Tour.”
Jorge Campillo of Spain was in second place at -19 under par, a last round -4 under 68 giving him that position on his own.
Tied in third place at -18 under par were Ryan Fox, New Zealand, with a final round -6 under 66, and Pablo Larrazábal, Spain, who also carded a last round -6 under 66.
