Andrew Landry wins Valero Texas Open

After beginning the final round of the Valero Texas Open tied with Zach Johnson, Andrew Landry posted a 4-under 68 (including three birdies to start the round) to post his first PGA TOUR victory. At 17-under 271 (the low winning score since the event moved to TPC San Antonio in 2010), Landry finished two strokes clear of Sean O’Hair and Trey Mullinax.

The victory came in Landry’s 32nd PGA TOUR start at the age of 30 years, 8 months and 15 days. He collects 500 points and moves from No. 41 to No. 9 in the FedExCup standings. Landry finished No. 178 in the FedExCup in his only other season on the PGA TOUR (2015-16).


Levy conquers all to lift Trophée Hassan II

Alexander Levy held his nerve brilliantly down the stretch to win his fifth European Tour title at the Trophée Hassan II.

The Frenchman entered the final day at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam one shot off the lead but hit the front on the third and never looked back, signing for a 70 and finishing the week at eight under.


Rahil Gangjee ends 14-year title wait at Panasonic Open Golf Championship

India’s Rahil Gangjee ended his barren run that stretched over a decade by closing with a three-under-par 68 for a one-shot victory over Korea’s Hyungsung Kim and Junggon Hwang at the Panasonic Open Golf Championship on Sunday.

Gangjee admitted he had self-doubts after not being able to enjoy much success since his last Asian Tour win in China in 2004. However, it was his sheer will power that brought him back into the winner’s circle after enduring years of frustration.


Kunming win for Finn Kim

Kim Koivu won his first title as a professional in style by carding a joint low round of the week 64 to triumph by four shots at the Belt and Road Colourful Yunnan Open.

The Finn, who only joined the paid ranks at the end of last year, led by one shot after the third round in China but following an outstanding start, where he holed a 20-foot birdie putt at the first, he then picked up four shots in four holes to move clear of the rest of the field.


Rahm ready for debut at Open de España

World Number Three Jon Rahm is excited to make his debut at the Open de España, one of the oldest and most celebrated tournaments in Continental Europe, when the Spanish sensation tees it up at Centro Nacional de Golf from April 12-15.

It has been a meteoric rise to the top of the world game for the 23 year old, and he will return to the familiar surroundings of the Madrid venue, which is the home of the Royal Spanish Federation, for the first time as a professional.


Rory McIlroy to return to PGA Championship

Rory McIlroy has confirmed he will return to the BMW PGA Championship – the first of eight Rolex Series events on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai in 2018 – with the four-time Major Champion set to join Paul Casey and 2017 Race to Dubai Champion Tommy Fleetwood in the field at Wentworth Club, from May 24-27.

The former World Number One, who won the prestigious title in 2014, will get his first chance to take on the revamped West Course, which underwent an extensive renovation programme before the 2017 BMW PGA Championship, after being forced to miss last year’s event due to a recurrence of a rib injury.


Johnston warming up for Open de España defence

Andrew “Beef” Johnston is hoping fond memories of Spain will help in his maiden title defence at the Open de España when he tees it up at Centro Nacional de Golf from April 12-15.

The Englishman, who finished second at the Hero Indian Open in his last start, will face stiff competition in a field full of European Tour winners, including Ryder Cup star and home favourite Rafa Cabrera Bello and his countrymen Pablo Larrazábal, Alvaro Quirós, Adrian Otaegui, and Jorge Campillo.


Fleetwood pitching for double-double in France

Tommy Fleetwood has his sights set on a double-double at this year’s HNA Open de France, the third Rolex Series event of the year, as the Englishman prepares to defend his title from June 28-July 1. The World Number 11 is the first star to confirm his return to Le Golf National, which is also the host venue of The 2018 Ryder Cup.

Fleetwood has already enjoyed a stellar start to his 2018 campaign, when he became only the second player to successfully defend his title in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA in January, and now, the 27 year old is relishing the opportunity to do it all over again in France.


Watson cruises to WGC - Dell Match Play victory

Bubba Watson claimed a thumping 7 and 6 victory over Kevin Kisner to win a second World Golf Championships title at the WGC - Dell Technologies Match Play.

Kisner had beaten Alex Noren in a high-quality semi-final and the championship match looked set to be a tight affair but Watson won the first five holes to storm into a lead he never looked like relinquishing.
