Robert Rock - (England) BMW Italian Open Royal Park I - Roveri - Turin - Italy - 9th to 12th June, 2011 The European Tour also saw a first time winner when Robert Rock won the BMW Italian Open title with a closing 67 that left him 21 under for the week, one ahead of Thorbjorn Olesen and Gary Boyd. The 21 year old Dane Olesen had already completed a stunning front-nine 29 by the time Rock teed off, and eventually signed for a ten under 62 that set the clubhouse target at 20 under. Gary Boyd was pleased with his improved showing after a disappointing start to the season had seen him down at 162nd place in The Race to Dubai at the start of the week. This win took Robert Rock to 111th with an improvement of 54 places in the World Rankings.

The 32 year old started the day three shots clear and was never troubled as Daniel Denison and Federico Colombo, both in the final group, carded 73 and 76 respectively. George Coetzee, another golfer who was three shots off the pace at the beginning of the round, signed for a 75. Zions climbed to 264th in the World Rankings with an improvement of 248 places.

Rory McIlroy - (Northern Ireland) US Open Championship Congressional - Bethesda - Maryland - USA - 16th to 10th June,2011 Rory McIlroy won the 111th US Open Championship with a wire-to-wire win that rewrote the record books. A final round of 69 saw him finish at 16-under-par, eight strokes ahead of closest rival Jason Day of Australia. He had record 36 hole, 54 hole and 72 hole totals and jointly held the halfway lead record with Tiger Woods (6 strokes). His overnight eight stroke lead was never really challenged. McIlroy's' first Major Championship win comes at age 22 and in his 11th Major Championship appearance. He climbed to a personal high of fourth in the World Golf Ranking with a jump of four places.

Pablo Larrazabal - (Spain) BMW International Open Golfclub Munchen Eichenried - Munich - Germany - 23rd to 26th June 2011 Pablo Larrazabal defeated fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia on the 5th hole of a play-off to win the BMW International Open. The 28-year-old's victory in Munich came only 20 days after he lost at the sixth hole of sudden death in an Open Championship qualifier at Sunningdale. Larrazabal will be going to Sandwich after all - and so will Garcia, whose runner-up finish earned him the other place up for grabs off a 'current form' mini-money list. The players had tied on 16 under par after Garcia birdied the 18th hole for the fourth successive day in regulation play but he three putted for par on the same hole and the title was his. Larrazabal moved up to 94th place with a jump of 86 places and Garcia moved to 51st in the World Rankings.
