“I’ll be staying quiet, no dance moves from me this week. I’m here to play golf. It’s obviously nice to have these stars around, but I’m focused on my job.
“Being in contention to win the Race to Dubai is the goal. Obviously we want to get as high up as possible going into the final few events, but I’ve got a few things that I need to sort out before then and hopefully come the final event I can be knocking on the door.
“I’ll have maybe five or six weeks off at the end of the season. That will be the time to reflect and work on the things that we still need to work on.
“It’s great to be here, but it’s not just about being at St Andrews, being in front of a home crowd the support will be good again and hopefully we can have a good week.
“You’re out here with stars, celebrities, but it’s just about me being here to play golf and enjoy myself. Having a chat on the way round as well, which I like.
“It’s been a quick year. At the start I was just trying to keep my card and then after the British Masters you sit back and go well, now I need to push on and try to win. Going from just trying to keep your card to trying to win on the European Tour is a drastic move, but I’m enjoying myself.
“I’ve not reflected too much, which is probably a good thing. We just keep going. You’re turning up trying to win at the end of the day, but we just try to enjoy ourselves, especially this week on home soil and this kind of format.
“I’m playing less links golf than I did as an amateur which puts a premium on the best part of my game, tee to green. In links golf you can get away with a bit more, so hopefully I can get away with plenty this week.”
