THE IRISH OPEN


June 22, 2014


Mikko Ilonen


FOTA ISLAND, IRELAND

Q.テつ Are you very, very proud of your performance across the whole of this week, wire‑to‑wire?
MIKKO ILONEN:テつ Wire‑to‑wire, it was very much Martin Kaymer‑inspired win.テつ I sent a message to him last week that I really enjoyed watching golf.テつ I very rarely enjoy watching golf; I would rather play golf, but Martin's win inspired me.テつ It was nice to keep that lead all the way.

Q.テつ Dare I say there was the similarity, not only leading but the way you held yourself and you seemed to be walking tall and very assured.
MIKKO ILONEN:テつ I made sure that I paced myself good and I'm not too quick with things and keep my head up no matter what happens, and I kept on doing the same thing all the time, tried to hit the fairway.テつ Hit a lot of greens today and kept okay pace with my putting.

Q.テつ You've won in Scandinavia, but this is something special, as well, isn't it?
MIKKO ILONEN:テつ This is slightly bigger.テつ I look back on the 18th green and I can't believe how many people there were.テつ It's nice to see.テつ It was a very humble moment.
