Rose set for long-awaited Irish Open return

Olympic Champion Justin Rose will make his first appearance at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory Foundation in seven years when he joins a world-class field at Portstewart Golf Club from July 6-9.

The Englishman will be playing on Northern Irish soil for the first time in his professional career when he brings his supreme talent to the third Rolex Series event of the season, having last played the prestigious event back in 2010 when his countryman Ross Fisher claimed the title.


Heaven for Evans as he takes Turkish title

Ryan Evans sealed a maiden European Challenge Tour victory as he prevailed in an epic tussle with Tapio Pulkkanen to win the Turkish Airlines Challenge by four shots at Gloria Golf Club.

The Englishman was paired with the Finn for the second day running, and with windy conditions in Belek preventing anyone further down the field from challenging, the tournament became a one-on-one battle over the last 18 holes.


Wiesberger tops Fleetwood in play-off at Shenzhen International

Bernd Wiesberger beat Tommy Fleetwood in a play-off to win the Shenzhen International - his fourth European Tour title - on a dramatic final day at Genzon Golf Club.

Making his 200th appearance on the European Tour, the Austrian entered the final round with a three-shot lead and eight shots ahead of Fleetwood but the Englishman fired a stunning 63 to set the clubhouse target and share top spot at 16 under.


Kuboya prevails in play-off at Panasonic Open Japan

Japan’s Kenichi Kuboya kept the Panasonic OPEN Japan trophy on home soil when he defeated compatriot Katsumasa Miyamoto at the first play-off hole on Sunday.

Victory at the ¥150 million (approximately US$1.37million) event was the first for the 45-year-old in five years and also provided him with much relief as he was facing the prospect of losing his winner’s exemption status on the Japan Golf Tour Organisation (JGTO) this year. 


Bernd Wiesberger on the charge in Shenzhen

Bernd Wiesberger charged to a three-shot lead heading into the final round of the Shenzhen International after a roller coaster day at Genzon Golf Club.

The three-time European Tour champion entered round three with a four-shot advantage but quickly saw that wiped out by Grégory Bourdy, who joined Mikko Korhonen in making a hole-in-one on Saturday, however a strong finish from the Austrian saw him sign for a 69 and a 15 under par total.


Ryan Evans moves into contention in Turkey

Ryan Evans took a second successive trip down Route 66 at Gloria Golf Club to reach 12 under par and trail Turkish Airlines Challenge leader Tapio Pulkkanen by one shot at the halfway stage

The Englishman dropped a shot on the fifth hole but followed up with four birdies in the next five, ultimately shooting a six under par round for the second day running to set the clubhouse target before Pulkkanen’s 69 took him back in front on 13 under par.


Tiger Woods undergoes back surgery for a fourth time

Golfer Tiger Woods has said he underwent a fourth surgery to relieve his ongoing back pain. The golfer confirmed on his official website on Thursday that he had undergone the operation at the Texas Back Institute in Houston.

The recovery period for this type of surgery is normally six months, so Woods is likely not to play again this season.


Tapio Pulkkanen on top in Turkey

Tapio Pulkkanen was in a class of his own as his opening ten under par round of 62 gave him a three shot lead of the Turkish Airlines Challenge on a glorious first day at Gloria Golf Club.

The Finn had ten birdies and an eagle, making only five pars all day, to leave Jan Cafourek, Julien Guerrier, Martin Ovesen and Ashton Turner, his nearest competitors on seven under par, trailing in his wake in the second event of the new European Challenge Tour season.


Bubba Watson makes strong start in Shenzhen

Bubba Watson produced his finest opening round performance in the weather-delayed Shenzhen International to set the clubhouse target six under par 66 to move one-shot clear of the chasing pack.

The big-hitting American has been one of the headline acts in each of the first three editions of the event at Genzon Golf Club as he looks to improve on his best finish of a tie for eighth in 2016.
