I mean, scrambling around like I did do day, I was all over the place. I need to be better off the tee. I didn’t play very good on eight, nine, 10. As soon as you hit the fairway on this course, you get yourself in a good place to hit birdies,” he said. “I need to be a bit straighter off the tee. If am better off the tee, my putting is very good and if I find some fairways, it will be interesting.”Watch the final round of the Andalucia Masters live on Sky Sports Golf from 11am on Sunday.
