Five of the Best - KLM Open (Day Four)

Romain Wattel captured a first European Tour title with a one shot victory at the KLM Open.

Here we hear from some of the players pipped by the Frenchman at The Dutch.

Austin Connelly (66, -14)

“I played exceptionally well today and made a lot of putts, which is so important in a final round like today because it just takes so much pressure off of you when you are making putts.

“This is a huge result for me. I only had one more event that I was guaranteed to play to try and win my European Tour card but it looks like I might have done it this week.

"This is my first time being in this position as I am not long in the professional game – I feel very blessed to have finished the way I did.”

Lee Westwood (69, -13)

“I played lovely again today. I might have gone as low as I needed to but this has been a really positive week for me.

"To be honest this is the best I have played for a couple of years in terms of ball-striking and control so I am delighted with what is my best result of the year. There are a lot of positives to take from that and now I can really look forward to playing in and hosting the British Masters.”
