SSP Chawrasia stormed to an utterly-dominant seven-shot victory to claim his fourth European Tour title at the Hero Indian Open.

Here, we take a look at what some of those in the chasing pack had to say after their closing rounds.

Matteo Manassero (73, -2)

"I'm happy with the way I played. It was really tough out there. The greens are tricky. I putted good until yesterday and this morning as well. This afternoon I just couldn't get the rhythm going. This has been happening to me a little bit lately but I just stay patient and I know that at one point they are going to fall. So I'm still really happy with my week and looking positively to the future. A top five finish is always positive, I'm really happy with that. I came here after a three-week break. I could have paid the price for not playing so much lately and focusing on improving a few things technically and being more in the gym. I take this week as very positive."

Scott Jamieson (72, -2)

"The front nine was good. I had a couple of funny shots in there as well, particularly on six, but managed to make a few birdies. They dried up a bit on the back nine. The key whenever you are in trouble is just to make sure that a bogey is the worst you're going to make and pick up some birdies when you can. I was probably a little bit timid on some of my birdie tries that didn't quite make the hole, but it was a good week."

Rafa Cabrera Bello (71, -1)

"It's been one of those crazy days. It's a bit of a summary of the week really. There has been some brilliant stuff in the game and then some horrible stuff. Obviously I fight until the end and had a good comeback after the mistakes. After the first seven holes today, I am definitely happy with a top ten. At the start of the week I would have liked to have played a bit better and be challenging for the win."

Anirban Lahiri (71, -1)

"I'm disappointed. I'm disappointed I got so far out through the first two rounds that I couldn't really challenge. Having said that, SSP would have been hard to beat seeing the way he is playing. I'm happy with the way I fought back. The third round got me into this position and I'm happy to finish strong. I missed a lot of shots, just put myself in bad positions. This course, you can't really do that."
