The Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego was a tournament that golf fans were looking forward to. However, many did not expect that the Frenchman, Matthieu Pavon, would win. Pavon shot a three-under par 69 to beat Denmark's Nicolai Hojgaard by one shot. Pavon could not hide his delight, given that he achieved a big success. He thanked the PGA Tour for giving him the chance to show his qualities. This will be an important step forward for the French before the next challenges.

"I have no words. It is amazing. It feels like there is another round to play tomorrow because we're only Saturday!" said Pavon, as quoted by skysports.com

"That is special. I can't thank the PGA Tour enough to give us the opportunity to come from Europe and compete here in America against the best players in the world."

Matthieu Pavon talks about his experience

Playing in America, according to Pavon, provided a unique chance with less pressure, as failure wouldn't be overly consequential.  

The fact is that when you play without pressure, the best can come out of you. Pavon entered this tournament relaxed, focused, and had nothing to lose. He used the situation in the best way and won.

He viewed it as an opportunity to learn and grow, with the option to return to Europe and start afresh if needed. Pavon highlighted his approach of giving his best effort each day and appreciating the special moments along the way as contributing factors to the realization of his dreams. 

After he made this kind of success and showed that he really has the qualities, there will be much higher expectations from him in the future. It is not known what the next challenge is for the Frenchman, but this will be a huge wind at his back. Pavon wants to do the same feat in the future.

His mentality is special in many ways. With this mentality, he has a good chance of success.
