Matthew Fitzpatrick won the Omega European Masters as Scott Hend was defeated in a play-off for the second consecutive season at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club.

Here, we take a look at what some of the leading contenders had to say after the final round in the Swiss Alps.

Scott Hend (68, -14, lost play-off)

"I had the opportunity and I didn’t take it. It’s just what happens when you don’t take your opportunities. I hit a good bunker shot on the 18th in regulation play to get into the play-off. I hit that shot when I came back to finish my third round this morning. It was just insane out of the bunker. I would love to putt the same way I did in the play-off but it didn’t happen. I came back this morning to play the 14th hole of my third round and I made a nice eagle there. It was a good start to the day. I didn’t play as nicely in the afternoon but it is what it is. Fitzpatrick played great to win. He’s a good champion."

Tyrrell Hatton (66, -11)

"It was a nice finish for me to get back up on the leaderboard. The opening nine holes have been pretty frustrating. I lost my hat a bit. I think I made it difficult for myself but I am happy with how I finished. It’s another good week for me in Crans. My long game has been pretty good all week, probably until the final ten holes. I don’t feel like I have holed enough putts this week and unfortunately that’s what it has boiled down to. But there are still a lot of positives to take from this week. I have been on a very bad run so it’s nice to be up there again. I am looking forward to my two weeks off now and I'll hopefully build on this for a strong finish to the year. I really like it here. I was hoping for a good week which I have managed to do. Hopefully I can take this form into the rest of the season."

Fabrizio Zanotti (68, -11)

"I enjoyed myself a lot this week. It has been a great week here. It’s good to be playing in the last group today. Yesterday on the back nine, I struggled a little but I managed to stay in contention for the final round. I think I hit it pretty solid today. I could probably be playing in the play-off if I could drop a few more putts but, overall, I am happy with my week. This should be my best result on this course ever. I have been here nine to ten times already so it’s definitely nice to finish top three. This week will give me a lot of confidence for the rest of the year. It’s good to be in contention again after some time. That’s some good positives to take this week. I struggled a little after winning in Malaysia in February so it’s good to find the good form again."
