Tommy shot a great final round -7 under par 65, one of the low rounds on the day, to retain his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship title with a -22 under par total, on a good day with the putter;
“It was pretty good on that back nine really, I think at the turn, it was just a few shots .”
“The up-and-down on ten, the up-and-down on 11, 13, got a bit lucky with the tee shot.”
“When putts were going in like 15 and 16, you just feel like, could this be my day again.”
“Then 18, I mean, forget the second shot, the up-and-down was one of the best up-and-downs I ever made. So happy days.”
“I holed the putts on the back nine, ten, 12, 13, 15, 16, the up-and-down on 18. I was just in the moment and seeing the shots.“
Ross Fisher finished in second place, making it a top one & two for England, he carded a last round -3 under 69 for a total of -20 under par;
“Obviously you’re going to face a very tough and tricky day, the wind was blowing.”
“Greens were getting firmer and faster. And then you’ve only got to look at the quality of the leaderboard, playing with Thomas, you had Fleet just in front with Rory, Fitzy, and you never knew, someone from even earlier could have shot a really low one.”
“Hats off to Tommy. I don’t feel like I’ve lost a tournament. Tommy’s gone out there and shot 65 and he’s won it, so all credit to Tommy.”
Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland, -2 under 70 today, Matt Fitzpatrick, England, -3 under 69, finished in third place at -18 under par.
