“I made pretty much no mistakes today, I’m super happy.”
“I’ve been striking the ball so well off the tee and also into the greens all week. It’s been so solid, it’s easy to play a round when the swing is there.”
“It’s the final day and the pressure comes on and I still hit good shots on the way in.”
“I had a really good feeling this morning, I was less nervous than I usually am before a big final round,.”
