‘Satisfied with my top-25 finish’

Tied 23rd in a Major is step forward and the next step is to try and get myself more often into Majors.

All four days I stayed in the 70 to 73 zone for my card but came back with the feeling of having a left a shot or two out there. Tied 23rd in a Major is step forward and the next step is to try and get myself more often into Majors. The best way, of course, is to get into top-50 of the world and then one does not need to go through qualifiers like I have had to for all my Major appearances.

For the final day I wanted to try and get as close to top top-10 as possible, but I began bogey-bogey just as I had done in the third round. The difference was that in the third round I had made up quickly with three birdies on the trot, but on Sunday I dropped another bogey on sixth, so it was three-over after six and I was seven-over for the tournament.

But what I am pleased about myself is that I managed to hold my game and did not allow things to worsen. When we reached the 18th, I told myself I could finish well with a birdie. I managed that and it gave me a good feeling as I walked off the course with a final card of 72.

A top-25 finish at a Major like US Open is certainly something I will cherish and work on improving it. It is back to the European Tour for me, but I feel I have come out of the US Open as a better and a more mature golfer.
