English duo lead after thrilling moving day in Doha

Oliver Fisher and Eddie Pepperell, compatriots and close friends, will lead the way in what is likely to be an almighty battle for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters as the two Englishmen share a two-shot advantage heading into the final day at Doha Golf Club.

It was an enthralling moving day in the Qatari capital and, although the birdies and eagles were flowing in the benign conditions, the most special moment of round three came courtesy of a bogey from Pepperell.


Jeunghun Wang returns as master of Qatar

Young Korean sensation Jeunghun Wang returns to the scene of the most recent of his three European Tour victories when the 22 year old defends his Commercial Bank Qatar Masters title at Doha Golf Club.

Wang was one of the breakthrough stars of the 2016 European Tour season, winning his first title in just his 13th appearance on the tour in Morocco before following that up with a second win in as many weeks in Mauritius.


Luiten lifts inaugural NBO Oman Open title

Joost Luiten claimed his sixth European Tour title at the inaugural NBO Oman Open, putting all of his winning experience to good use as a flawless back nine lifted him to a two-stroke victory over his close friend Chris Wood of England.

It was a thrilling day at the sun-kissed Al Mouj Golf on the outskirts of the Omani capital Muscat, as joint overnight leader Luiten stormed into a three-stroke outright lead courtesy of a trio of consecutive birdies from the second, before he stumbled with back-to-back bogeys on the seventh and eighth holes.


Matt finishes with a flourish to complete stunning Oman comeback

Matthew Southgate produced a remarkable comeback during a rollercoaster round on moving day at the NBO Oman Open, the Englishman storming into a three-stroke lead early on before dropping four shots in four holes and then battling to regain those four shots for a share of the third round lead.

The 29 year old, who overcame testicular cancer in 2015, carded a three under 69 but he took an unusual route to that score, starting like a steam train as he birdied the opening three to move clear of the pack.


Ted Potter Jr. cruises to victory at Pebble Beach Pro-Am

After a career-low third-round 62, Ted Potter, Jr. shot a 69 in the final round to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three strokes over Phil Mickelson, Chez Reavie, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson.

Potter earns his second PGA TOUR victory in his 84th start at the age of 34 years, 3 months, 2 days. With the win, Potter collects 500 FedExCup points and moves from No. 117 to No. 15 in the FedExCup.


Kiradech Aphibarnrat storms to victory in Super 6 finale

Kiradech Aphibarnrat won his fourth European Tour title after a 2 and 1 victory over James Nitties in the final of the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth. The Thai only entered this event seven days ago on an invite and arrived having not played any practice rounds at Karrinyup Country Club.

He needed four trips up the 18th in a play-off on Saturday night to claim the last of the 24 spots in the Super 6 and then had to come through five rounds of match play and 35 holes on Sunday.


Potter joins Johnson in share of the lead at Pebble Beach

The last time there was a tie at the top through 54 holes at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was 2013, when James Hahn and eventual champion Brandt Snedeker were tied at 12-under 202. Since 2000, the 54-hole leader/co-leader has gone on to win 10 times, including four of the last five winners: Jordan Spieth/2017, Brandt Snedeker/2015/2013, Jimmy Walker/2014, Dustin Johnson/2010, Phil Mickelson/2007/2005.

Through 13 events in the 2017-18 PGA TOUR Season, only six players have converted a 54-hole lead/co-lead into victory. Most recently, Dustin Johnson did so at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. The largest come-from-behind win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is seven shots by Davis Love III in 2001 and Bob Rosburg in 1961.


Prom Meesawat qualifies top in Perth

Prom Meesawat signed for a 67 to finish top of the leaderboard after three days of stroke play at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth.

Play on Sunday will switch to match play, with five rounds of six hole knockout matches to determine who will win the second staging of this revolutionary event at Lake Karrinyup Country Club.


Johnson, Hossler tied for the lead at Pebble Beach

World No. 1 and two-time AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am winner Dustin Johnson opened with three consecutive birdies at Monterey Peninsula CC. After a bogey at his sixth hole (No. 15), Johnson produced five additional birdies for a 7-under 64 and a share of the 36-hole lead with Beau Hossler at 12-under.

Of the nine times Johnson has played Monterey Peninsula CC, Friday’s 7-under 64 marks his best performance at this course by four strokes. This was just the third time Johnson has managed to break 70 at MPCC (2010/68, 2015/69).
