“I obviously expected somewhere close to 25-under that was going to lead tonight so by the turn when I saw nobody was really making a charge I just kept calm and tried to hit as many greens as possible and give myself as many greens and putts as possible.

“The greens were a little bit firmer and that was about it. I can’t think the course played much different but the greens were definitely a lot firmer.”

“I stayed very patient all day and got a bit unlucky on the 14th, obviously someone is testing my patience on the 14th, so I made a bogey there but kept it cool and finished up nicely.

“It was awesome, I haven’t played in front of a nice home crowd before so I really enjoyed every minute of it. You have to take it as it comes, just stick to your process, trust your targets, trust your lines, hope for the best and enjoy it.”
