“It was a very nice way to finish. Great shot on 17 and obviously a great putt on 18. It was obviously a bit of a fight out there. I am just happy I stuck on out there and kept being aggressive the whole way around.

“I know how hard it is to win out here, it never comes easy so that is important [knowledge]. My attitude today was really good. If I can keep staying aggressive and not worrying too much then that is very important. It is always really difficult to win, you have to go out there and get it.”
