England's Gary Christian won the Nationwide Tour's Mylan Classic and in doing so looks to have secured a spot on the PGA Tour for 2012. Christian lies fourth on the money list and at 286th in the World Ranking. It was a pleasing day for the English on European soil when Tommy Fleetwood made good on his promise as an amateur. He picked up his first Challenge Tour victory in Kazakhstan by leading by two strokes going into Sunday's final round. He could afford to only shoot 70 on Sunday to still win by a couple from Norway's Knut Borsheim. The young Englishman found himself placed 214th on the World Ranking with a rise of over 100 places. Justin Rose hung tough on Sunday to claim his third PGA Tour win at the BMW Championship, and in doing so propelled himself right into contention for the season ending FedEx Cup Trophy. Rose went into Sunday's final round at Cog Hill with a four shot lead having led since day one. Under pressure from Australian John Senden he saw this dwindle to a solitary shot. However, when he needed it, a chip in from just short of the penultimate green gave him the comfort of a two-shot lead and he duly parred the last to take the title. Not only does this win see Rose climb 31 places on the FedEx, but it also sees him jump 23 places and placed back inside the World's Top 20. On a very English leader board in Russia’s capital city, Sam Little was the big winner on Sunday by taking the M2M Russian Challenge Cup title by one from compatriot Andrew Johnston. Little had been four over par after his first four holes on the Thursday. However, he played exceptionally well for the other 68 to finish at 11 under par and take his third Challenge Tour title, the first for seven years. He now finds himself assured of a place on the 2012 European Tour and moved up to 435th. One man able to take victory without the need for extra holes this week was England's Sam Little. Having not won on the Challenge Tour since 2004, he took his second title in two weeks at the ALLIANZ Golf Open du Grand Toulouse. Having won in Russia the week before, Little quickly put himself in contention on Sunday. A a two shot swing on 13 gave him a one stroke lead he never looked back. Just two weeks before he was outside the Top 700 in the World and the Top 40 on the Challenge Tour money list, but now finds himself second and assured of a return to the European Tour in 2012, as well as climbing some 415 places to 296th.
