Jon carded a final round -5 under par 67 to win the DP World Tour Championship, with a -19 under par total, and a one shot victory;
“It’s hard to sum it up, an incredible week, I could not be more proud of what I’ve done this week.”
“It could be very easy to just be content with getting the award and just being here and trying to play the best.”
Second place was shared between Shane Lowery, Ireland, -9 under 63 today and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Thailand, -5 under 67 last round, both with -18 under totals.
Tommy Fleetwood won the Race to Dubai carding +2 over par 74 here, but the cushion he had built up was good enough to hold off Justin Rose, who finished in the tie for third place in the DP World Tour Championship with -2 under 70 today and -17 under for the Championship, when at one point he was soaring, a triple bogey six at the par three 14th really was his undoing;
“I did hit the wall a bit today.”
“My front nine was beautiful. I was playing great golf and I felt in complete control, but the bogey at twelve seemed to slow all the momentum.”
“From that point it was a bit of a grind.”
