Richard McEvoy Quotes:



 "Absolutely incredible," he told Sky Sports. "It was a rollercoaster ride big time today. But I fought hard, I believed and even at the last I overpowered my caddie to lay it up and give myself the best opportunity to make birdie and managed to do it. 
 “It’s incredible,” McEvoy said. “I’ve waited a long time, 17 years as a pro on and off the Tour. I’m absolutely over the moon. 
 "I've tried to enjoy my golf as much as possible. Not that I haven't been but I just needed to that little bit more and it's just come up with proper trumps."
