Henrik Stenson


Q.  Quite a way to win the match.  Talk us through the final shot.
HENRIK STENSON:  He was putting a lot of pressure on me coming in.  I felt pretty confident after 14.  I was 3‑up with four to go and I knew I needed a halve to go through. 
Of course you want to win your match when you're 3‑up at that stage.  But then I 3‑putted from very far away on 15 and he hit a good first putt, almost made it for eagle and 2‑putted for birdie.
Then I thought what I needed to do on 16 when I just trickled it up there to a foot and got it for par and then he managed to chip‑in from off the green for birdie to take it 1‑up with two to go.
Now it's getting a little bit more interesting, but he didn't hit the best of approaches on 17.  So I felt like if I can stick my lob‑wedge in there a little bit past and try to spin it back, and came out with a nice flight and knew it was going to be pretty good but a bonus that it went in the hole and spectacular way to finish.

Q.  You told us you had not touched a club for a couple of weeks; are you getting more into it, is the game feeling better?
HENRIK STENSON:  I probably played a little bit better the first day than yesterday but the back nine was good yesterday and today was pretty nice, as well.  Got to have a good start but he was always hanging in there.  Every time he missed the green he got up‑and‑down and I had to make birdies to win holes which you kind of expect.  I was playing nicely and he came back and I returned the favour to him on 17, so nice to not have to go down the last.
