I hit some squirrelly-looking shots out there. Nick Price.

Before today's round we were on the practice ground and Nick was hitting the ball so well he said to me he wanted to hit a couple of bad ones so he knew what they felt like. He wanted to get a couple of poor shots out the way and didn't think hitting everything so cleanly was a good omen] David Leadbetter on his charge's success.

Our game was like sitting in a round room watching paint dry. Nothing ever happened out there - there was no flow, no rhythm and you need that in golf. Fuzzy Zoeller on his final round with Brad Faxon.

I just went out there to play but I must confess that a 62 became my target then because I knew no one else had ever shot that before in the Open. Nick Faldo.

It's been a real mixed bag this week. I went from disaster to a good comeback to frustration - but finally to a good day. I will sit down and analyse things. I'm learning because you are learning all the time in this game. Faldo.

The last two days were a bit of a struggle, but it's been a great experience. I'll never forget it. My adrenalin didn't stop pumping all week. Warren Bennett, top amateur.

John came here to win this championship and once that chance had gone he didn't care if he was 50th or fifth. Dave McNeilly, John Daly's caddie, after his man shot a closing 80.

I will keep battling on as long as I still have the desire and keep hitting the ball the way I want. That is what I enjoy. Every shot is a target, a mini goal. If I were to stop playing in my 40s what would I do, play for fun? It is something in your blood, you have to hit it one more time. Faldo.
