Wade Ormsby won his first European Tour title as a closing 68 got him to 11 under at the UBS Hong Kong Open.

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

Rafa Cabrera Bello (69, -10)

"It was a bit of a slow start. I didn't quite play great on the front nine, nothing wrong, just not really giving myself birdie chances. The back nine I felt a bit better, I gave myself some chances. I rolled some good putts and obviously a bitter feeling with the last bogey to miss out on the play-off. It's been a great week again. I came from playing great last year, I finished second here. I felt that I gave myself a really good chance coming in today again, I've been battling until the last hole, there's not really much more that you can ask yourself as a player than to have a chance coming up the last, the coin just didn't fall my side this time."

Alexander Björk (68, -10)

"Disappointing, really disappointing. I was playing well the first nine holes, playing a little worse the back nine, but I had a decent chance on 17. The second shot on 18 just came out short and back in the bunker and I missed a short one for par and potentially a play-off. It's a very good week, of course, but I wanted to win that's for sure. I'm going to be disappointed for a few days but I will get over it and come back again."

Julian Suri (66, -10)

"It was good, I did what I wanted to do which is what I did all week. I've just been puring it really tee-to-green. Even today I had some close calls but at least I got a couple of putts to drop, got some momentum. Looked like the leaders weren't really doing much. I kind of saw the green light on the back nine and made a couple there. Still didn't really make much coming down the stretch, which is kind of disappointing. On the greens it was pretty disappointing. I would say all four days I really left a lot out there and really pleased with my ball-striking. I feel like this is the best I've hit it all year, gave myself a million chances and didn't really make anything all four days. The way I'm hitting it, I should have been double this or close to it. I'm playing really well."

Paul Peterson (67, -10)

"Had another solid round going, another bogey-free which always feels good. I was just happy with how many quality putts I hit coming down the stretch, any one of those could have gone in. I think that's the difference some weeks whether you top-five or win. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get those to go in coming down the stretch but hit quality putts that started on line and they all got to the hole, so you can't ask for much more than that."

Tommy Fleetwood (69, -9)

"I played lovely, just didn't get the ball in the hole at all. Just one of them days, it was a bit like that all weekend. I played really nice and just couldn't make the putts. I holed a great putt for par which could have been an early momentum builder but just couldn't get anything going. Happy with how I played the first event of the season. It's hard to be disappointed with a sixth-place but I felt like I could have done better."
