Matt Wallace secured his maiden European Tour victory at the Open de Portugal at Morgado Golf Resort, but behind him a host of players enjoyed career-best finishes.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.
Julian Suri (65, -18)
"I got off to a great start. The key thing for me was that yesterday after I finished, I had a tough putting day and I put in about two hours of work on the green last night. Then I came in about three hours before my tee time today to hit some putts.
"I was really starting to trust my putting by the end of that practise time and it just carried over into my front nine.
"I birdied the first three, made a great birdie on five, and then got another on nine. From there I was rolling and really got the juices flowing.
"Putting was the difference for me today. It definitely wasn’t my best ball striking day. Being able to trust my stroke inside ten or 12 feet, because out here you will have so many of those putts, that definitely made the difference.
"It’s been a long time coming. I was home for about six weeks back in the States working with a coach – Dan Carragher – and he gave me a pep talk last night, telling me to trust my putting, the same with my brother back home."
