It's not going to happen. Since it happened I've not been slow and I'm not going to be over time at all.

In the end, I'm happy. If I had made the putts I had over the first two days I feel I could have won but I never felt comfortable with the putter. And when Sergio had the chance he took control and you can't fault him for that.

I was close to not playing because of feeling unwell. I felt tired and ached in my body. But I gave it a go to see how I felt and the putts started to drop.

I definitely thought about winning a tournament at the start of the year, ... I had six top 10s last year, even though only a couple of them I thought I had a chance of winning, but I could feel it gradually coming.

I've aired my views to everyone concerned about it. I don't care who are you - unless you're Tiger maybe - £16,000 is a bit penal, to say the least.

As you can imagine it's not a nice thing when you know 16 grand is looming.

When I won in Wales I shot 27 on the front nine and I was looking at my notes from that week this morning.

I think it's a bit astronomical.
