Angel Yin enjoying rookie season on LPGA Tour

What a rookie season it has been for Angel Yin. The 19-year-old from Arcadia, Calif., tied for third at the 2016 LPGA Q-School to wrap up her card for 2017 and has made the most of her first year on the road. She has four top-10 finishes, including a quarterfinal run at the Lorena Ochoa Match Play, and has impressed scores with her prodigious length off the tee. Yin’s driving average of 271.8 yards puts her in fifth behind four of the biggest guns on Tour – Maude-Aimee Leblanc, Joanna Klatten, Lexi Thompson and Jessica Korda.

That drive and length, to go with a relaxed attitude that belies her young age, impressed Captain Juli Inkster enough to go with Yin as one of her captain’s picks for the 2017 USA Solheim Cup Team. But while Yin was certainly impressed by her week in West Des Moines, her laidback nature shines through when she’s asked about how her life has changed.


Hatton clinches thrilling victory at Italian Open

Tyrrell Hatton sealed his second European Tour victory in seven days with a brilliant birdie at the last to win the Italian Open at Golf Club Milano.

Last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship winner carded six birdies - including five on the back nine - in a flawless 65 on Sunday to win his first Rolex Series event and now moves to fifth position in the Race to Dubai Rankings.


Jin Young Ko holds off Sung Hyun Park to clinch first LPGA title

KLPGA player Jin Young Ko overcame a nervous start and held off the formidable challenge of World No. 2 Sung Hyun Park to clinch her first LPGA Tour victory by two shots at the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship on Sunday.

Ko, who had been two strokes in front overnight, bogeyed two of the first three holes in front of record tournament galleries to drop two behind a fast-starting Park before she reignited with a barrage of birdies to fire a four-under-par 68 on the undulating Ocean Course at SKY72 Golf & Resort.


Erik van Rooyen triumphs in Hainan

Erik van Rooyen secured his European Tour status for 2018 by claiming a maiden European Challenge Tour victory at the Hainan Open.

The South African began the week on the cusp of a European Tour card as he sat in tenth place in the Road to Oman Rankings, but after scooping a first-place pay cheque of €47,539 he is assured of a place on Europe’s top tier next season.


Green continues to stay ahead in Asian Tour merit race

Gavin Green remains on course to become the first Malaysian to win the Asian Tour Order of Merit after continuing to lead the money list with the conclusion of the CIMB Classic on Sunday. Green surged to the top of the Order of Merit after his maiden win in Chinese Taipei a fortnight ago.

Although he finished tied 61st at the Malaysian showpiece, his earnings of US$15,190 has assured him of his place at the top. 


Pat Perez runs away with CIMB Classic

Pat Perez completed a stunning victory at the US$7 million CIMB Classic by closing with a three-under-par 69 to win by four shots on Sunday.

The American made three straight birdies from the second hole before a bogey on six was offset by another birdie on eight. He parred the next 10 holes to secure his first win in Asia and third on the PGA Tour with a winning total of 24-under-par 264. 


Wallace takes two shot lead into last lap at Monza

Matt Wallace will take a two shot lead into the final round of the Italian Open, the fifth Rolex Series event of the year, as the Englishman targets his second European Tour victory this season at Golf Club Milano.

The 27 year old – already a winner on Tour this year after his victory at the Open de Portugal at Morgado Golf Resort – opened with a birdie at the first for the third day in succession before going on to sign for a round of 67. He produced a tremendous par save at the 18th to move to 17 under par and extend his advantage to two shots over fellow countryman Tyrrell Hatton.


Perez continues to sizzle at CIMB Classic

American Pat Perez fired a third round eight-under-par 64 under sweltering heat to extend his overnight advantage to four shots at the CIMB Classic on Saturday.

The American’s best finish at the Malaysian showpiece was a ninth-place finish at the 2012 edition. But having produced a masterclass in putting at the TPC Kuala Lumpur all-week, Perez remains well on course to become the oldest winner in the CIMB Classic at 41 years old.


Murillo claims play-off victory at Combiphar Players Championship

Wolmer Murillo of Venezuela survived a five-way play-off to win his maiden Asian Development Tour (ADT) title at the US$100,000 Combiphar Players Championship on Saturday.

The 36-year-old Murillo was the last man standing against Chinese Taipei’s Wang Wei-lun, South African Mathiam Keyser, American John Catlin and William Harrold of England after they were all tied on seven-under-par 277 in regulation play at the New Kuta Golf, Bali.
