“It’s like a bus, you wait ages for one and then two turn up at once.”
Pushing all the way was Nicolas Colsaerts, Belgium, they were neck and neck on the last green, and both had eight foot birdie chances, Nicolas failed to convert his, which left him in a tie for second place with his final round -5 under 66 for a -17 under par total;
“The juices were flowing. It was great to be able to push it until the end. I was surprised that none of the other guys were making such a push.”
“Too bad the little one on 18 doesn’t drop but that’s the sport.”
Sharing that second place at -17 under was Dylan Frittelli, South Africa, a last round -7 under 64 pushing him up the leaderboard, even missing a couple of putts;
“I had two chip-ins yesterday. I don’t know, something’s clicking right in my short game.”
“Although a few putts slipped by I’m still proud of the way I finished.”
“I played with Justin yesterday and he played amazing golf.”
This win for Justin has put him in touching distance of Tommy Fleetwood at the top of the Race to Dubai Rankings.
