Grace happy with top 10 finish
Last updated: 22nd January 2013
World number 30 Branden Grace is pleased with his top ten finish at the Abu Dhabi Championship on Sunday.
Grace, who finished fifth at the competition, felt he was striking the ball well; off the tea and on the greens.
"I just kept on hitting the balls in the right spots the last couple of holes and the putter was hot, so the last one was actually the longest putt I had to make," said a confident Grace.
Above all else, he was particularly impressed by his putting.
"It was one of those rounds where everything got together. The putter was hot.
"I think that was the big difference between me and many today. You could say we hit it the same, if not better, but I just made everything I looked at," added the South African golfer.
Grace hopes to build on this momentum, by adding to his four existing European Tour titles. The key word, as always, is consistency.
"I think that's something I've wanted to work on. Last year, I had four wins, but obviously I had some nowhere finishes as well.
"I think this year, I obviously want to try to keep on winning, but I want to get the consistency up," added Grace.
