Ryan and Jon shot a -3 under 69 in the alternate-shot final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to win by three strokes at -26 under par.

Ryan said it was an awesome week, his first Tour win since 2010;

“What an awesome week, our games complement each other so much, the way we drive the ball, our iron play, and there’s nothing better than missing greens knowing his short game is behind me.”

“It’s so fun when you’re playing with a guy who can hit it as good as he does. When I’m hitting it as well as I can, it makes for a lot of fun golf.”

“What a week.”

Jon was left without a partner when his intended partner Wesley Bryan had to have a shoulder op. In stepped in Ryan;

“When Wesley told me he was having shoulder surgery a few months before the event, I was in no man’s land with no partner.”

“I got a text from Ryan, and last year we were joking around saying we are going to play together really, really well based on how we played last year.”

“And then we saw each other, and it was a clear choice. I’m really happy I said yes, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

“This is a very special one, it’s very special for Ryan. I’m really excited to be able to share it with him because he definitely earned it today.”

Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia claimed second place at-23 under.

The teams of Kyoung-Hoon Lee / Matt Every and Brian Gay / Rory Sabbatini tied for third spot, five shots behind the leaders at -21 under.

Tiger beat Rory then lost to Lucas on the final hole, missing a four-foot putt.

Lucas was happy with the result;

“It’s a shame it had to end the way it did, our match didn’t deserve that.”

“But I’m happy to be on the winning side.”

“It’s been a pretty incredible day. It’s been emotional, that’s for sure.”

Tiger said the result would hurt for a while;

“This is going to sting for a few days.”

Lucas will now face Matt Kuchar, who took care of a petulant Sergio Garcia, who made the ultimate blunder, picking up his ball without Matt telling him he could, losing a hole he should have won.

Francesco Molinari will take on Kevin Kisner in the semi’s tomorrow.

Francesco said of his victory;

“I think it’s really important at this level, even if you’re three or four up early, to keep going because matches can turn very easily.”

 “It’s nice obviously to close it out early, but I’m ready to go as long as it takes.”

Dustin recovered from a double bogey six to score a third round -5 under par 66 to lead the WGC Mexico Championship by four shots with a 54 hole total of -16 under  the double bogey did not worry him;

“I knew I was playing well so I didn’t really let it bother me.”

“I know I hit a couple good chips today, but for the most part this week my short game’s been quite rubbish.”

“I’ve hit the ball really well and I’ve played really good, but I missed a bunch of I felt like easy up-and-downs.”

“I’ve got a game plan out here, I’m not going to change it.”

Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland, has second place at -12 under par with his third round -3 under 68;

“D.J. is playing very well. He seems to be comfortable on this golf course.”

“He’s going to be very tough to beat, tomorrow I’m going to have to go out there and probably shoot something similar to what I shot the first day (63) to have a chance.”

Four players are then tied in third place at -9 under, Sergio Garcia, Spain, -2 under 69 today, Patrick Reed, USA, -7 under 64, Cameron Smith, Australia, -3 under 68 and Patrick Cantlay, USA, with his third round -6 under par 65.

DJ carded a bogey free -4 under 67, the only player to be bogey free in the WGC Mexico Championship through two rounds. Dustin has a two shot cushion at the top of the leaderboard at -11 under par;

“I just hit a lot of fairways, hit a lot of greens.”

“My speed has been pretty good with the putter.”

“I feel like I’m swinging really well, I’ve got a lot of confidence in the game so I’m looking forward to this weekend.”

Tied in second place are first round leader Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, a disappointing -1 under par 70 today, and Matt Kuchar, with -4 under 67.

Tiger pulled off one of the most amazing recovery shots you could ever imagine.  He missed the fairway at the par four 9th, his final hole of the day. The ball was  sitting in a bad lie in a fairway bunker. To make matters worse there was a tree to go around to a pin cut on the right side. Tiger pulled off the helicopter shot, the ball finding the green, and also spun just past the cup, for Eagle. Sadly missing the return birdie, giving him a round of -5 under par 66, and T8 at that five under score;Helicopter finish / getty

“I opened it up and gave it as much of a cut motion as I possibly could, and it worked out.”

Tommy Fleetwood had his own magic today, making a spectacular start, driving the first green, and then pitching in at the second, to become the first player in ten years to begin his round Eagle-Eagle on the European Tour. He is currently T4 with Sergio Garcia at -7 under.

Li signed his third round card for -8 under par 62, with three Eagles on par fours and one on a par five. He also managed to throw in a bogey as well. The history making round saw him catch Dustin Johnson, -5 under 65 today,  at the top of the Saudi International leaderboard, both with -16 under par totals, giving them a five stroke advantage over the field going into the final round tomorrow.

Li spoke of his Eagle two at the first hole;

“If it didn’t go in the hole, it could have been off the green. It’s a very lucky eagle over there.”

“At the tenth, that’s what I wanted to play, that way, but I felt like I pushed it a little bit. I got a lucky bounce, kicked it left and went in the hole, which is very lucky, too.”

“Those eagles, especially the last couple of shots, were really solid but except that, honestly, my play wasn’t that good.”

“But I did make a lot of par putts.”

Dustin said he had played well once again;

“I thought I played well. I probably played just as well as I did yesterday.”

“I gave myself a lot of opportunities and made a lot of good putts. Just holed a few more yesterday than I did today, is the only difference.”

“For me, I just go out and play like I’ve been playing and hopefully can roll in a few more putts and see what I can do.”

“Haotong is a good player. He’s obviously playing well right now. I think it’s going to be kind of a tough match against him tomorrow for the most part, but I’m looking forward to it.”

Tom Lewis, England, has third place to himself at -11 under, he scored a more conventional bogey free -8 under 62, all birdies.

On  sad note today Sergio Garcia of Spain was disqualified from the competition for serious misconduct.

Sergio made a statement afterwards;

“I respect the decision of my disqualification.”

“In frustration, I damaged a couple of greens, for which I apologise for, and I have informed my fellow players it will never happen again.”

Bryson carded a final round -8 under par 64 to win the Omega Dubai Desert Classic by seven shots with a -24 under par total, and a seven shot winning margin at Emirates Golf Club;

“Today I was happy with my game. I executed a lot of great shots.”

“Today was a pleasure. It was obviously a lot of fun to be able to finally hoist an international trophy, I’m so happy about that.”

“I was trying to shoot 25 under today and missed it by one, but I’m happy with the results for sure.”

“I was trying to go as deep as possible today.”

In second place was Matt Wallace of England, a last round -4 under 68 not good enough to get anyway near the leader, he finished at -17 under par;

“I wanted to give it a go today, I really wanted to put some pressure on Bryson.”

“Credit to him, he’s played great today from what I hear and he’s a worthy champion this week and it’s great to have him here.”

“But I’ll try and get him next time.”

Tied in third place at -16 were Ian Poulter and Paul Waring, both from England and  both also -8 under 64 today. They were joined by Sergio Garcia, -6 under 66, and Alvaro Quiros, -4 under 68, both from Spain.

Matt shot a 7 under par 65 first round to lead the Omega Dubai Desert Classic by one stroke;

“It was obviously a great finish to the round. A couple of things that I’ve been doing in the off-season sort of looked to have paid off a little bit.”

“I just added a bit of extra length to my driver, so it’s given me a few yards to help get on in two on the last because I’ve never been able to do that. And then, just wedging it a lot better has given me a few more chances coming in.”

“I do like the golf course. It’s tough, you’ve got to hit fairways, you’ve got to hit greens and I think it does suit my game if I’m playing well.” 

“So it’s nice to be able to get off to a good start and three more rounds like that would be nice.”

Eight players then share second place at -6 under after their opening rounds of 66;

Sergio Garcia, Spain, Bryson DeChambeau, USA, Scott Hend, Australia, Matthieu Pavon, and Romain Langasque, both from France, Thongchai Jaidee, Thailand, Kalle Samooja, Finland and Callum Shinkwin from England

Bryson was happy to be where he is, even though he did not play his best golf;

“I didn’t feel like I was hitting it anywhere near my best.” 

“I was able to recover in a couple of situations, made a couple of long putts and then got up and down on six, which was huge.”

“I even missed a couple of putts. I just felt like it was a scrappy round, but I got it out and shot 66 today, so I’m happy.”
