MacLaren Claims Second LETAS Title in Azores

England's Meghan MacLaren claimed her second victory on the LET Access Series with a two stroke win in the Azores Ladies Open, at Terceira Golf Club on Terceira Island.

It is the second title for the daughter of David MacLaren - executive director of the European Seniors Tour - in LETAS tournaments, but the first as a professional, since last year, when she was victorious in Zaragoza, still as an amateur. It is, indeed, striking that MacLaren already has two LETAS titles in only four tournaments played. It looks predestined that she will enjoy a successful career, already having a card to play some events on the LET, and with her victory today seizing the number one ranking on the LETAS Order of Merit this season.


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.


Australian Rookie Hannah Green Birdies the 18th Hole to Claim First Career Win at Sara Bay Classic

Hannah Green (Perth, Australia) finished at 2-under par, 214 after a final round 1-over 73 to earn her first career Symetra Tour victory at the Sara Bay Classic.

Green, 20, was the only player to finish under par for the tournament on the Donald Ross design at Sara Bay Country Club. The 2017 Symetra Tour rookie bested playing partner and 36-hole leader Benyapa Niphatsophon (Bangkok, Thailand) and Princess Superal (Dasmarinas City, Philippines) who tied for second place at even par. 


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.


Florentyna Parker defeats Anna Nordqvist in play-off to win in Spain

England’s Florentyna Parker defeated Anna Nordqvist of Sweden with a birdie on the fourth extra hole to capture her third Ladies European Tour title at the Estrella Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open in Spain.

With a final round of five-under-par 66, Parker came from four strokes back to tie with Solheim Cup players Nordqvist and Carlota Ciganda on 15-under-par at Club de Golf Terramar in Sitges. Ciganda’s birdie putt in regulation play lipped out of the hole and the three players returned to the 18th tee.


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. 


Melissa Reid produces sensational 62 to open up big lead in Spain

England’s Melissa Reid carded a course record third round of nine-under-par 62 at Club de Golf Terramar on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead into the final round of the Estrella Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open in Sitges, Spain.

The 29-year-old from Derby, who claimed her sixth Ladies European Tour title at the Oates Vic Open in Australia in February, made nine birdies in her first 15 holes but bogeyed the par-5 16th to effectively rule out equalling the LET’s all-time scoring record of 11-under for 18 holes. However, she nailed a long, curling putt on the 18th green for her 10th birdie of the day, sealing a personal career low round, against the stunning backdrop of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.


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.
