Gareth Shaw


Q.  Give us your thoughts on what seemed to be a very nice second round here at The Irish Open?
GARETH SHAW:  Yeah, delighted, great finish, three birdies in the last four.  With the wind getting up, it's looking ever more promising for me.

Q.  For the weekend you must be delighted?
GARETH SHAW:  Obviously just got a call last week getting into the weekend; this week is a bonus for me.  I've been playing very solid all year, and again I played solid again today.  Hit a few ropey ones but held more putts today and that's probably the difference.

Q.  Before the tournament started you said making the cut was the real ambition; how do you reassess your goals?
GARETH SHAW:  It's a bit early to reassess straightaway but I'm happy with it.  My game is solid, but it's all about the putting.  If I can hole some putts, you never know what can happen.

Q.  Lovely finish for you.
GARETH SHAW:  Yeah, it is, because I was on the cut mark playing the last four holes, a stiff left‑to‑right breeze coming in there, and it's not my favourable wind, either.
So I was very pleased how I handled it.  Hit some lovely putts and held a wedge shot into the last as well.

Q.  Were you thinking about the cut line?
GARETH SHAW:  Of course you are.  I'm quite good when I'm on the cut mark of making the cuts; I don't know why, grind it out.  Again, today, it's more evidence that I can do that again and I'm delighted.

Q.  And this is your first full European Tour event, nice to play so well, I'll sure.
GARETH SHAW:  Yeah, of course it is, home support, got my family here, girlfriend here, coach was down yesterday.  I've got all sorts of people and hopefully a few more will come down tomorrow and watch.
