After a close victory over 2023 Masters champion Jon Rahm, Tony Finau said he knew the competition would be a close one, via Golf Channel:

“Rahmbo is the best. I knew I was going to have my hands full to the end."

Brandon Wu, who finished third behind Finau and Rahm, said:

“Just a few too many loose swings. Satisfied with how I went today. I’m glad I gave myself a chance through nine holes.”

Rahm gave Finau a run for his money but couldn't bring it home in the final round. He admitted that he didn't do much wrong, but also didn't do a whole lot right, either. He said:

“Obviously I wanted to win, but it’s a reminder that everybody out here is a great player. Tony came out with a two-shot lead and played fantastic golf. I feel like had I been able to pressure him a little more, we would have seen more birdies from Tony.”

Akshay Bhatia finished fourth after a real shot at winning. He's on a temporary PGA Tour membership but is inching closer to making it real. He said:

“I know I'm capable of winning. Obviously won on the Korn Ferry Tour (at the 2022 Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay), so I know what the feelings feel like going into tomorrow. We're just going to have fun.”

Will Bhatia continue his strong play and become a full professional on the tour? His Mexico Open performance seems to indicate as much.
