“I have really good memories and feelings. It was very satisfying, the way the whole week went, the way I managed it.

A very, very good first round. The second and third rounds were very important, they were only two under rounds, but that was key. I didn’t play my best, as good as Thursday and Sunday, but I still managed to shoot under par, keep up there on the leaderboard and a very good final day gave me the win.

I was very pleased with the way I played and the way I managed the week. With this weather it’s a dream to be back and very nice to get the feeling back from playing the course, walking the holes again. Awesome views today with this good weather.

I’m very happy to be back here at the Fairmont. It’s going to depend on the weather, the wind and the rain – it might rain a little bit at the end of the week. It’s a scoreable course. On the front nine there are a few par fours which could be reachable – today they weren’t.

The rough isn’t very thick but you need to be good around the greens, because there are some slopes. They are rolling very pure. It’s a scoreable course, but you need to play well and the weather has to be on your side”
