Q. Joined by Robert Macintyre. Hi, Robert. Great playing today. Just how would you assess your performance this week?
ROBERT MACINTYRE: It's been a good progression. I struggled obviously early on in the tournament. Couldn't get the putter going. I felt like on the weekend there I really started to get the putter rolling.
I yeah, I mean, hopefully I can sneak a Top 10 would make an absolute brilliant week.
Q. Do you feel like you're close, ready to win a major?
ROBERT MACINTYRE: I don't know -- I mean, I feel like I'm ready. I feel I've got the game to do it. But I've not really put myself in with a real right chance coming in on a Sunday.
But I'm doing everything right to give myself that chance. It's just about getting off to good start early on in the right tournaments and keep the momentum going.
Q. Standing on the 14 tee on Friday knowing you had to birdie two of the last five holes to get through to the weekend, you must be delighted to finish with such a strong weekend and get into the Top 10, which it looks highly likely you have now.
ROBERT MACINTYRE: I hope so. Again, always say it, I never give up, no matter how many I'm behind our outside of cut line. You just never know what's going to happen. Even today once I managed to escape a bogey on 14, Nate said, You could birdie all four of the holes coming in, and he's right, you can.
You can hit brilliant shots on the stretch of holes, but on Friday I just knew what I needed to do, and thankfully I done it. That putt on 18 was massive in the end.
