International Golf News October 2010

Fri, 1st Oct 2010
Charley Hoffman was on fire as the PGA Tour finished on the Monday shooting a final round 62 to win by five at the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second event in the FedEx Cup series. The American has won once before, at the 2007 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, but he looked like a seasoned winner as he blazed past overnight leader Jason Day and final round challengers Luke Donald and Geoff Ogilvy. The win saw Hoffman rise 81 places on the Official World Golf Ranking to Nº 51. For the second time in three weeks the Challenge Tour was the scene of amateur victory as home favorite Romain Wattel stunned his professional counterparts with a three shot victory at the Allianz European Strasbourg – Golf de la Wantzenau. He follows in the footsteps of Danish amateur Andreas Harto who won the Rolex Trophy a fortnight earlier. Romain Wattel is now placed Nº 435. Alvaro Velasco took his second Challenge Tour title of the season shooting a final round 69, to win by one at the Kazakhstan Open. The Spaniard had already won on home soil this season at the Fred Olsen Challenge de Espana and this second victory saw him ensure his place on the European Tour in 2011. He is now Nº 229 on the Ranking with a rise of 76 places. Peter Karmis won his maiden Asian Tour title at the Handa Singapore Classic after holding of the challenge of fellow countrymen Jbe Kruger. The South African led every day and completed his wire-to-wire victory with a one-under-par total on the Sunday to win by two strokes. The win sees Karmis jump 474 places up the Ranking to Nº 390. It’s been quite a season so far for Martin Wiegele with two victories to his credit already and the Austrian will be hoping to make it a hat-trick in front of the home support. The 32 year old tasted success on home soil earlier in the year when he won the Karnten Golf Open by Markus Brier Foundation in spectacular fashion at Klagenfurt-Seltenheim Golf Club in June. Martin Wiegele recorded a hole-in-one on the par three eighth hole for a second consecutive year and this time left with the title as well as a car as he secured his second European Challenge Tour victory following the Lexus Open in 2007. He followed that by winning the dual-ranking Saint Omer Open just three weeks later and at World Nº 242, he has usurped Markus Brier as Austria's leading golfer. Martin Wiegele will tee it up alongside US Open Champion Graeme McDowell and Spaniard Gonzalo Fernandez Castano for the first two rounds, ensuring a huge following at Diamond Country Club. He might start in the shadow of his more illustrious counterparts but Wiegele has shown on more than one occasion already this season that he can produce the unexpected.
