“I’m so over the moon. Not just 15, the fact it’s Dubai. It’s an iconic event on the European Tour. One of the coolest trophies around.”

“I’m all emotional with wins, but with this one; this one is such a prestigious event, the history which is behind you, and I can see it from here with amazing winners, is basically a Who’s Who in world golf. Dubai have given so much to golf, European Tour golf in general and across the globe.”

“The long walk from nine green to the tenth tee box kind of reset everything. I kind of just said, ‘all you have to do is hit one good shot and one good shot’. Got very fortunate on ten to get a good bounce and get on the green and two putt for birdie and the momentum kept on building.”

Robert Macintyre of Scotland finished in third spot, a final round +2 over par 74 not what he was really hoping for.

“I was patient and committed to every shot. That’s something I struggled with last year but this year, it’s been drilled into me by many people – accept what comes. Just control what you can control and it’s working well.”

“I’ve been in the hunt a bunch of times in a major. I’ve got one major, so having that experience is definitely going to be beneficial tomorrow.”

“You know, but it’s one of those things. Still going to have to go out and play really good golf.”

“This is a tough golf course. Greens are getting really firm. They are fast. So, I think the wind is going to blow again tomorrow, so it’s going to play difficult.”

“I look forward to the challenge, and you know, I will definitely be relying on a lot of that experience that I have.”

“I have been out here awhile now. I’ve been in contention a lot, and I’ve got it done a lot of times. Tomorrow, it’s no different. I’m going to have to play good golf if I want to win.”

”  It’s simple, I’ve got to hit a lot of fairways and a lot of greens. If I can do that tomorrow, I’m going to have a good chance coming down the stretch on the back nine.”

Tied in second place at -8 under are Scottie Schefeller who also carded -5 under 65, and Cameron Champ with -3 under 67.

“Things didn’t go my way today, I fought well until the end.”

“It doesn’t matter where I am on the leaderboard, bottom or top, every point counts.”

“Today I just showed my fight and to birdie the last was huge to get a tie for the lead.”

“It’s just about the belief. I’m going to go out there tomorrow and play my best golf. If it’s enough, it’s enough. If it’s not, it’s not.”

“We are always going to learn and today was a huge learning experience.”

Paul Casey of England has third spot on the leaderboard to himself, just one shot back at -8 under par, a good round of -3 under 69 keeps him in sight of the Title, and the advantage of experience on his side;

“Solid stuff, probably my best ball-striking day this week;  until 18 when I knocked it in the rough.”

 “I was cruising around, having a good time. The sun’s out with no wind, my kind of style of golf.”

“There’s very little pressure on me. I’m the guy to beat, I’m the highest in the World Rankings of the guys on the leaderboard, but still I’ll go out, do what I did today and have a lot of fun, enjoying the golf course.”

“I would love to win a Porsche European Open.”
