Jakarta, April 26: Read what leading contenders have to say following their final round at this week's CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters presented by Enjoy Jakarta Golf.

One-over-par 73, (Total -7, 281)
Every win is very special to me. But to come to this tournament and winning it three times is obviously extra special. I’ve never been beaten around this golf course which is great and this win will give me the confidence for the year ahead. I’m delighted to have come over and win the tournament. It was all pretty good until 16 where I hit a poor second shot, pulled it a little bit and went through the back. I chipped back and missed from about six feet. I hit it into the rough on 17, hit a good shot and chipped to about four feet but missed that as well. It was a tough putt coming into the hill over on the 18, misread it slightly and hit it to about 5ft and missed it. But fortunately in the play-off, I hit it into the exact same spot, I knew the line and it was a nice straight putt for the win. There are a lot of good players on the Asian Tour now and the standard is getting higher on this Tour and it’s harder to come over here and win. I’m very fortunate as I have my success over the years in Asia and I’ve witness myself how the Asian players have been improving. I meet them on the PGA Tour and European Tour and have witnessed their success. It’s nice to come back here and play with them on their own Tour, see how to show everybody in Asia how good they are.

When I started out, I told myself a top-three finish would be fantastic, considering how good Lee has played this week. Getting into the play-off was a bonus and I’m very proud of myself despite the defeat. I managed to sort out my putting this week. And that’s important as it’ll help in the long season ahead.

Five-under-par 67 Total (-6, 282)
I was looking to birdie a hole each time I go out there. I knew I needed an eagle to at least have a chance.  But I hit it into the bunker and my putt just fell a little short. All in all I’m happy with the day’s work. Seeing my name out there on the leaderboard was a big motivation and I was just trying to chase them down. I haven’t finish inside the top-20 in my last three events on the Asian Tour and I was really looking forward to this week. It’ll be nice to have my card secured early in the season. And I knew if I can have a good day today, it’ll help to secure my card. But there’s Mauritius next and I’m looking forward to it.

Six-under-par 66 Total (-3, 285)
I’ve been hitting quite well this week. I misjudged a lot of putts in my first three rounds. I was always under-par but just couldn’t finish it off. Whenever I got to under-par, I kind of got defensive but today, I just kept on going, feeling like I needed more. (birdies). Luckily I had good yardages on my second shot and hit it pretty close to the pins. This is actually my first under-par of the year. My best score so far coming into today was even-par and it was nice to have a six-under on my card. It was pretty tough out there as it was windy and the pin positions were tough. But I managed to play well under such conditions. Hopefully this will kick start my season.
