QUICK QUOTES FROM:

GONZALO FERNANDEZ CASTAÑO

Q. (No Microphone.)

GONZALO FERNANDEZ CASTAÑO: I think I'm happy in a way. I pretty much had the round under control every day. It's not that I had things get away from me. So I have to be happy, this is the first time I've made the cut.

Unfortunately, a little disappointed with that 3 putt finish on the last. That would have put me in the top 10 and I would secure my place for next year and some of the good things that were at stake.

But overall, I think I have to be happy. It is my best finish in a Major Championship, and especially on a really tough one like a U.S. Open.

Q. The consistency you had throughout the week, talk about that.

GONZALO FERNANDEZ CASTAÑO: Well, I think I was mentally prepared to what was going to happen. When you play a U.S. Open, you know you're going to make bogeys, you just have to get away with it and just keep plowing away and that's exactly what I did.

It's been a good week. Overall I think it's been a very good week. There's many positives to take out from this U.S. Open and hopefully will make me a little stronger for future majors and future U.S. Opens.

Q. You say that, Top 20 in the Masters as well, and it's a continuation of that progress.

GONZALO FERNANDEZ CASTAÑO: Yes, I think it's a good progression. I just need to keep working on the same things I'm doing and hopefully one Sunday I can find myself contending for one of these, because this is what it's all about, playing in these major Championships and just feeling that pressure on the Sunday, which I think is good.
