ABU DHABI HSBC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP


January 19, 2014


George Coetzee


ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

Q.テつテつ 66 is a brilliant round, 12‑under is a brilliant total, how do you fancy it the chances?
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ At the beginning of the day, I would have taken it definitely.テつ I didn't really play that well, but I think I had 22 putts again today.テつ I remember reading that Mickelson shot 63 with 22 putts after 12, and I think I had nine or ten putts through ten holes.

Q.テつ Tell us about the second shot to the last, are you aware Mickelson had made a triple and you were right in the thick of it?
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ I saw he was in the bushes, but obviously he's got a lot of holes to go.テつ So you just try and shoot something that you can, the best possible score that you can.テつ I was disappointed with the approach shot but the way I played today I'm quite happy.

Q.テつ What are your thoughts?
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ Quite happy, the way I played this week, surprising to see my name up there.テつ I just putted really well and luckily that's one of the parts that mattered the most.

Q.テつ And you gave yourself a nice realistic chance; you might yet win it, 6‑under for the final round is a good knock?
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ Yeah, 16, 17, pretty tough holes.テつ You can birdie but you can also make mistakes.

Q.テつ And you'd have seen the last hole there, I presume that was one that will stick in the mind for a little while?
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ Who, mine?テつ No, not really.テつ I'm quite happy with the par that I made.テつ I made a good putt to make the par, and I was quite happy with the tee shot but yeah, that's the way things goes.

Q.テつ What are your feelings about 12‑under; not quite enough?
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ Yeah, I think‑‑ I told myself if I can beat 12‑under coming down the last and maybe have a chance at a birdie, I'd be quite happy and that's what I had.テつ Unfortunately didn't give myself a good enough chance for birdie.

Q.テつ When we consider this is right at start of the year, it bodes pretty well.
GEORGE COETZEE:テつ Yeah, we are all busy trying to make a living, so it's always nice to get off to a good start.
