Quick Quotes

Q. Just what a fantastic week, close with a 7-under 65 today. You may not have realized that you were going to get this close to a playoff, just a few comments about the week.

CHRISTIAAN BEZUIDENHOUT: Yeah, I love this week. This is my third time playing here. I always like to start my year here. Yeah, everything about this place, the weather, the people, the golf courses that we play on, all the courses are just in great conditions and, yeah, it's just a joy to be here.

Q. How much can you take away from knowing you were this close, you're obviously heading in the right direction, you got to feel good about your game.

CHRISTIAAN BEZUIDENHOUT: Yeah, a hundred percent. Although, I don't feel I had my full game today, I still managed to score. The whole week I really putted well. I made some great putts coming in as well now. Like, on 15, just that kick started my back nine as well.

Q. How cool is it that we have an amateur who has done what he has done here this week?

CHRISTIAAN BEZUIDENHOUT: Yeah, it's amazing. Actually, I heard his name last year when he won the U.S. Amateur. Yeah, he's obviously a hell of a player and congrats to him and hopefully he can be out on the PGA TOUR soon, and we all can get to play with him.
