American John Catlin won his maiden Asian Tour title after carding a final-round three-under-par 69 to win the US$300,000 Asia-Pacific Classic on Sunday.

The 27-year-old had a nervy start as he dropped two shots on his opening nine holes. However, he recovered when it mattered most, scoring birdies on holes 11, 13 and 14 before holding on for his maiden Asian Tour victory on a 16-under-par 272 total at the St Andrews Golf Club in Henan, China.


Swede dreams for Björk in China

Alexander Björk claimed his maiden European Tour title in some style at the Volvo China Open, the Swede soaring to a flawless 65 to come through an almighty final round battle at Topwin Golf and Country Club.

It was an exciting final day at the Beijing venue as a plethora of players moved into contention and threatened to take home China’s national open, but as the drama unfolded the 27 year old remained calm and composed throughout to become the first Swedish winner in the 24-year history of the Volvo-sponsored event.

Joachim B Hansen claimed his first European Challenge Tour title with a cool performance in the Antalya heat at the Turkish Airlines Challenge.

Wallace shares honours with Otaegui at Volvo China Open

Overnight leader Matt Wallace of England battled to a three-under-par 69 to remain atop the leaderboard, sharing the honours with Adrian Otaegui of Spain, who caught up with him with a birdie blitz, following a low-scoring day at the Volvo China Open on Saturday.

The 28-year-old Wallace, who held an overnight one-shot lead, nailed four birdies against a bogey for a three-day total of 12-under-par 204 at the Topwin Golf and Country Club. Otaegui matched his efforts after sinking five straight birdies starting from the eighth hole for a flawless 67.


Andrew Landry wins Valero Texas Open

After beginning the final round of the Valero Texas Open tied with Zach Johnson, Andrew Landry posted a 4-under 68 (including three birdies to start the round) to post his first PGA TOUR victory. At 17-under 271 (the low winning score since the event moved to TPC San Antonio in 2010), Landry finished two strokes clear of Sean O’Hair and Trey Mullinax.

The victory came in Landry’s 32nd PGA TOUR start at the age of 30 years, 8 months and 15 days. He collects 500 points and moves from No. 41 to No. 9 in the FedExCup standings. Landry finished No. 178 in the FedExCup in his only other season on the PGA TOUR (2015-16).


Swede success for Jenny Haglund in Morocco

Alexander Levy held his nerve brilliantly down the stretch to win his fifth European Tour title at the Trophée Hassan II.

Gangjee admitted he had self-doubts after not being able to enjoy much success since his last Asian Tour win in China in 2004. However, it was his sheer will power that brought him back into the winner’s circle after enduring years of frustration.
