Thongchai enjoys solid week in England

Thongchai Jaidee ended his campaign with an even-par 70 at The Open on Sunday and he hopes to build on his performance this week. The Thai star traded three birdies against as many bogeys to finish on a one-over-par 281 total and was pleased with his battling performance at Royal Birkdale.

“I played alright but I struggled with my irons because the wind direction was different every day. The pin positions were difficult today. You need to have the perfect club because it is difficult to attack the pins.


Le Vaud-Rai win earns Aaron a European Tour card

Aaron Rai capped an incredible six months with a third European Challenge Tour victory of the season at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, securing himself European Tour status in the process.

The Englishman was ruthless on the final day at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil, recovering from a rare early blemish on the second hole to open up a two-shot advantage at the turn before he pulled emphatically away from the field on the back nine.


Madsen makes his move at Le Vaudreuil

Morten Ørum Madsen’s outstanding seven under par round of 64 earned him a share of the lead with 18 holes remaining at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, with Aaron Rai alongside him on 13 under par after Day Three.

Madsen, a winner on the European Tour only three years ago, rediscovered his form at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil, turning in 29 and closing with a birdie after a couple of dropped shots on the back nine.


Sjöholm storms to Sardinia victory

Joel Sjöholm won his maiden European Challenge Tour title in style by carding a final round of 65 to triumph by four shots at the Italian Challenge Open by Lyoness. The Swede started the final day two strokes behind overnight leader Bradley Neil, but following four birdies over the front nine he took the lead at Is Molas Resort.

After Neil double-bogeyed the tenth, Sjöholm saw his lead rise to three shots, and after further gains at 12, 13 and 16, the 32 year old had the luxury of walking down the last with a four-shot cushion.


Price cuts through the competition to win maiden European Senior Tour title

Welshman Phillip Price overturned a three-shot deficit on the final day to win his first European Senior Tour title at the WINSTONgolf Senior Open.

Price, a member of Europe’s victorious 2002 Ryder Cup side, started the day three strokes behind American Clark Dennis, but raced into the lead after making five birdies over the first six holes.


Cabrera Bello seals stunning play-off win in Scotland

Rafa Cabrera Bello sealed the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open title in stunning fashion after a brilliant final round 64 gave him the chance to defeat Callum Shinkwin in a play-off at Dundonald Links.

The Spaniard clinched his third European Tour title – his first in more than five years – and became the fourth Rolex Series winner, with a birdie on the first play-off hole.


Poulter in three way tie heading into final round of Scottish Open

Ian Poulter, Callum Shinkwin and Andrew Dodt stayed calm amongst the storm to stay at the top of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open leaderboard.

On a classic Scottish summer’s day which featured gusting winds, driving rain and not the warmest temperatures, Poulter and Dodt managed to post third round scores of one under par 71, while Shinkwin carded a level par 72, to share the nine under lead.


Clark Dennis increases advantage at WINSTONgolf

Clark Dennis will take a three shot lead into the final round of the WINSTONgolf Senior Open after firing a second round 68 for a 12 under par total. The American, who started his second round on the back nine, birdied the tenth hole to move to nine under par and then birdied the 14th to reach double figures at WINSTONgolf.

He then recorded his only bogey of the tournament so far on the 15th hole, but cancelled that out with gains on the second, fourth and seventh holes for a three shot lead over Phillip Price and Chris Williams.


Bradley Neil in charge in Sardinia

Bradley Neil will take a two-shot lead into the final day of the Italian Challenge Open by Lyoness after carding a third round 64 at Is Molas Resort. The Scotsman continued his impressive run on the European Challenge Tour, where he has recorded sub-70 scores in his last eight rounds.

The 21 year old made the perfect start in Sardinia, bagging birdies at the first and second to move clear of overnight co-leader Joel Sjöholm.
