Dean Burmester

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Q. Tell us how delighted you are with that.
DEAN BURMESTER: Yeah, pretty amazed. A little nervous on the first tee this morning. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't. I played with Peter and Ben, and they really helped me to feel at home on the course early on. Just managed to keep a lot of mistakes off the card and I hit the ball pretty solid all day and just had a nice finish.

Q. Did you feel at home playing with those two?
DEAN BURMESTER: I feel like it obviously helps, you play with friendly guys, it always helps. You know, sometimes you get intimidating guys and that makes it maybe a little tougher, but all the more reason for you to kind of stay in your own bubble and keep going. Yeah, I'm just delighted.

Q. Is there a reason for this?
DEAN BURMESTER: Yeah, I think a little bit of hard work. Last year, I was expecting big things. I was inside the top hundred in the world, and getting into tournaments I wouldn't normally get into. A couple of things didn't go anyway, a couple of bad bounces and a lot of frustration in there and unfortunately it just kind of leaked into the whole year, and I ended up finding myself back in Q-School, which I was not expecting.

I put in a lot of hard work after that Q-School, and it's nice to see it paying off.

Q. Probably secured your card with this performance. What does that do for the rest of the season?
DEAN BURMESTER: That would be huge for me. I haven't even thought of that yet. But it would be amazing. That's goal No. 1 coming out this week, just try and Top-10, Top-10, Top-10, as much as I can, and hopefully by the end of The Desert Swing, I'd be somewhere in a position to have a chance to hold my card.

If that's the case after today, I'd be really delighted.

Q. Was consistency the key this week?
DEAN BURMESTER: Yeah, I think so. Like I said before, I just putted well all week. The last four holes, I had four 1-putts, so coming in under that kind of pressure -- well, not four 1-putts, but I made four good putts coming in. That's kind of just been the story of the week. My caddie and I have just seen the lines on the greens really well all week. Bit of work to do maybe on the ball-striking but I'm happy.
