SHOWS: ICHEON, SOUTH KOREA (APRIL 28, 2013) (UCOM - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) WINNER BRETT RUMFORD, SPEAKING ABOUT RECEIVING A TIP FROM HIS COACH BEFORE TEEING OFF FOR PLAY-OFF HOLE, SAYS: "The tee shot was perfect. Pete just gave us a quick tip. Not going to mention it obviously, I am going to keep that one a secret, but it was brilliant. It just got me back to the feel, and the feel that I have been working on for months now. So when it is good it is very, very good but obviously there is a slight transitional hiccough. If I put that on a golf ball I really start to struggle with the long stuff so it was great that Pete was there and was able to offer me that little bit of advice." STORY: Australian Brett Rumford won the European Tour's Ballantine's Championship in Icheon, South Korea on Sunday (April 28) with an eagle at the first play-off hole to beat compatriot Marcus Fraser and Peter Whiteford of Scotland. Before teeing off for the play-off, Rumford had called coach Pete Cowan for some advice on how to fix his driving, and credited Cowan for the perfect tee shot that helped set up the eagle. His second shot with a long iron dropped to within two metres at the par-five 18th and he confidently rolled in the putt to seal a fourth European Tour title and first for six years. "The tee shot was perfect," Rumford said. "Pete just gave us a quick tip. Not going to mention it obviously, I am going to keep that one a secret, but it was brilliant. It just got me back to the feel, and the feel that I have been working on for months now."
