As you can imagine he was absolutely over the moon with his first ever win in Scotland, not to mention three wins in a row; “This is my first professional win in Scotland so it means a lot. This a great tournament, there’s definitely something special about playing golf up here and the golfing crowd are so knowledgeable and I’ve really got to love this golf course." “It was exactly the start I was looking for, and sixteen was the key. I looked at the leaderboard and I was only two ahead and felt I was bound to make bogey there. Getting it up-and-down was the key to the win."  “I couldn’t have scripted it better, I’ve never won two in a row and I’ve certainly never won three in a row so I’m in unchartered territory.”   In second place was Kristoffer Broberg, his last round -5 under par 66 gave him a -14 under par total, he said he was very happy to be in second place; “I'm just happy to be runner-up to Justin Rose, he played really well this week. I'm just happy.” Scotsman Marc Warren who started the day on equal terms with Justin could only card a final round of -1 under par and a finishing total of -11 under par, and third place on his own. He reported that  it was his putter that went cold; "On the front nine today my ball-striking was up there with what it's been all week. Unfortunately the putter went cold on me and I just wasn't quite seeing the lines to be honest." "Justin was the opposite. He seemed to be putting from outside me most of the time and holing them. Once he was out in front, he was tough to catch." Rory McIlroy had a final round -4 under par 67 which left him on -7 under par, the score he had been on Thursday evening . Defending Champion Phil Mickelson was  one shot ahead of Rory at -8 under par for the tournament, with a last round -6 under par 65.
