Next year’s Ry­der Cup...

“I am try­ing not to think too much about it, even ‘though it is the big­gest tour­na­ment I can imag­ine play­ing in right now. But I have been in the other ones – The Open and the Masters – so it would be amaz­ing.”

Hang­ing with Rory and Jack...

“I’ve prac­tised at The Bear’s Club when I’ve been in Amer­ica. It is an amaz­ing place to play and prac­tise, and it’s nice to be close to the best play­ers in the world like Rory, so I can watch what they are do­ing, what they are prac­tis­ing and talk a lit­tle bit to Jack. We don’t talk about golf that of­ten, but he’s a re­ally nice guy and I have spo­ken to him a few times about as­pects of the game.”

His streaky putting...

“My putting hasn’t been as good this year as last year. I putted well last year and it has been a strong part of my game for four or five years. I also hap­pened to putt very well when I won those four tour­na­ments and had those ca­reer-high putting rounds.”

What they say about him...

“He has al­ways been one of those peo­ple who you felt should have done bet­ter with his tal­ent than he has. Now some­thing has fi­nally clicked.”

Lee West­wood

“He is one of the more tal­ented play­ers we had, but he just couldn’t get out of his own way.”

Mike Holder, golf coach at Ok­la­homa State, where Rickie Fowler also went

“That was the best round of golf I’ve ever seen. So glad I got to wit­ness it first-hand.”

Peter Uih­lein (Alex’s play­ing part­ner in the fi­nal round at Went­worth)
