ALFRED DUNHILL LINKS CHAMPIONSHIP


September 29, 2013


Tommy Fleetwood


ST. ANDREWS, SCOTLAND

TOMMY FLEETWOOD:¬† It's obviously a brilliant week.¬† If you'd have give me fifth before I came, I would have took it, especially with 21‑under, best score I've shot for four rounds.¬† You keep putting personal bests out there, you've got to be happy.
Today, especially the last six holes, I had a lot of chances.  Just couldn't seem to get one.  I really wanted to give myself a chance with a putt on the last.  Disappointed but I've got to be happy.

Q.  The three birds in a row to start the back nine, you sensed a chance?
TOMMY FLEETWOOD:¬† Yeah, I was still behind obviously and I was still chasing and then you've got the tough holes to come.¬† Coming in, I couldn't have hit it any better‑‑ and like I said, maybe I started trying too hard on the putts but I just couldn't seem to get one to drop.¬† It is frustrating and you've got to keep going, but that's the way it is, that's golf and I'm sure that I'll have a day where they do drop.

Q.  How much more difficult has the back nine in particular been with the breeze today?
TOMMY FLEETWOOD:  Yeah, today it was a little more across.  So when we played on Thursday, it was tougher because it was straight into.  But still, the holes are playing so long, and it's obviously a big comparison to the front nine where you can drive a couple of the greens like 370 yards.  It is a big change, and you really have to strike it well on the back nine.  You have to hit good shots.  You have to really play well to shoot a decent score on the back nine.
Like I say I'm disappointed with 3‑under on the back nine and just shows how good I've got to hit it.

Q.  I know we have to digest this one first, but there's a nice one on the horizon for you.  Looking forward to Seve Trophy?
TOMMY FLEETWOOD:  Yeah, I can't wait.  It's been a long time since I played match play in any event, and obviously it's a massive achievement to get into that Seve Trophy.  There's a lot of great players.
Looking forward to it.  It's a nice little bonus to the year, and yeah, I can't wait.

Q.  You've got a good team, GB&I?
TOMMY FLEETWOOD:  Yeah, a lot of good players, plenty of good players.  I'm sure we have a good chance, just as Europe have.  It would be great and match play it's a different format that we very rarely get to play but hopefully I can put in a good performance.
