International Golf News August 2010

Sun, 1st Aug 2010
Justin Rose won his second PGA Tour tournament in three starts as a final round of 70 saw him win the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club from Ryan Moore by a single stroke. Rose hit a fantastic 3-wood close for eagle on the ninth but then three-putted the next two holes. Seven closing pars were enough for a win which took him to World Number 16, a jump of 19 places on the week and 54 better than his 2009 year end ranking. Sweden's Carl Pettersson shot a third round 60 en route to his fourth PGA Tour victory at the RBC Canadian Open. The 32-year-old's ten under par Saturday was a tournament record and propelled him into contention after only making the cut by a shot. Dean Wilson, playing on a sponsor's invitation, had led by four overnight but faltered on the back nine to hand Pettersson victory. The win sees the Swede jump almost a hundred places on the World Golf Ranking to 109 place. Australian Daniel Gaunt claimed a one stroke victory at the inaugural English Challenge after a bogey at 18 saw high-flying amateur Tommy Fleetwood concede victory. Gaunt was only playing because of his position on the top of the EuroPro Order of Merit and he took full advantage becoming the ninth first time winner on the Challenge Tour this season. This success saw Gaunt take a meteoric jump of over 700 places in the ranking to 447 position.

His par at the first extra hole, the same 18th hole he had just double bogeyed, was enough for victory and he becomes the oldest winner of continental Europe's oldest golf title. The win takes him to World Number 32, a jump of 18 place.

Edoardo Molinari - (Italy) The Barclays Scottish Open Loch Lomond - Glasgow - Scotland - 8th to 11th July, 2010 Italian Edoardo Molinari won the Barclay's Scottish Open at Loch Lomond.

Edoardo closed with a 74 in the much tougher conditions and, with a 12 under par total of 272, took the €601,599 first prize by three strokes from Darren Clarke. Rafael Jacquelin holed at 40 foot putt for birdie on the 18th for 3rd place alone while Edoardo's brother Francesco, playing with his sibling in the final group, finished in a tie for fourth place with Stephen Gallacher and Peter Hedblom. The win took Molinari into the World Top 20 with a 22 place jump to World Number 19.

Louis Oosthuizen - (South Africa) The 139th Open Championship St. Andrews - Old Course - Fife - Scotland - 15th to 18th July, 2010 South African Louis Oosthuizen won the 139th Open Golf Championship by seven strokes from Lee Westwood over the Old Course at St. Andrews. He started the final day with a four stroke lead which after eight holes had been trimmed to three, but an eagle at the ninth and a birdie at the twelfth to Paul Casey's triple-bogey seven gave Oosthuizen the lead by eight. Westwood birdied the final hole after rescuing a five when in trouble at the seventeenth, which gave him outright second place. Louis Oosthuizen climbs to a career best as 15th in the Official World Golf Ranking from the 54th place.

Richard S. Johnson - (Sweden) Nordea Scandinavian Masters Bro Hof Slott - Stockholm - Sweden - 22nd to 25th July, 2010 Richard S Johnson became only the second home player in the last 12 years to win the Nordea Scandinavian Masters after a 30-foot birdie putt saw him triumph by one over Rafa Echenique. The Swede, now based in America, has struggled on the greens all year but a closing 71 was enough to see him delight the home support. His second European victory has propelled the 33-year-old almost 150 places up the ranking and inside the top 200 at 189.

Ross Fisher - (England) 3 Irish Open Killarney - Co Kerry - Ireland - 29th to 1st August, 2010 The big hitting Englishman made another big impression on the game with his victory in the 3 Irish Open on Sunday and having moved into the world’s top 20 and well up The Ryder Cup Points List and the foundations are in place for a great few months. Firestone Country Club, with its length and tight fairways and premium on good driving could be right up Fisher's street as he looks to build on his success in Killarney. He threatened a sub-60 round on Friday before settling for a 61 and despite being caught by the home favorite Padraig Harrington, responded in the manner of a true champion to edge clear. He has the benefit of the vastly experienced Phil Morbey, (aka Wobbly), on his bag now and that can only help his cause as Wobbly has seen it all having caddied for Ian Woosnam and Jose Maria Olazabal, two of Europe's great champions. Fisher will not get carried away by his 3rd Irish Open victory and signs are good for him for continued success.
