Day takes 2-stroke lead into final round of PGA Championships, Spieth in hot pursuit

Three times a runner-up at Major Championships, Australia's Jason Day will look to go one better on Sunday at the PGA Championships at Whistling Straits, having taken advantage of some excellent playing conditions on Saturday to open up a 2-stroke lead with an excellent 66 to move to 15-under for the Championships.

Day though will keep a close eye over his shoulder as leading the chasing pack is the reigning US Open and Augusta Masters champion, Jordan Spieth, chasing a third Major for the year.


Lahiri and Kiradech eye strong outing at PGA Championship

Asian Tour star Anirban Lahiri feels like a good week is coming on ahead of the PGA Championship which begins at Whistling Straits on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Indian, who currently leads the Asian Tour’s Order of Merit, struggled at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week, finishing tied 53rd, but believes he can bounce back strongly at the year’s final Major.


Zach Johnson wins The Open in amazing three-way playoff

Zach Johnson of the United States outclassed South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen and Australia’s Marc Leishman in a four-hole playoff to win The Open on Monday. Victory was especially sweet for the emotional Johnson as it was his second Major victory since he won The Masters in 2007.

“I’m at a loss for words. But I’m grateful and humbled. I’m thankful. This is the birthplace of the game and that jug means so much,” said a tearful Johnson after watching Oosthuizen missed a birdie putt on the final playoff hole which would have sent the contest into a sudden-death.


Lahiri steps up learning curve with closing 72 at The Open

India’s Anirban Lahiri knows he will return as a more accomplished player after he signed off at the world’s oldest Major with an even-par 72 on Monday. The current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader, who was playing at the Old Course in St Andrews for the first time this week, believes it was his inexperience that cost him dearly after he closed with a four-day total of six-under-par 282.

“I can’t say I played well because I dropped too many shots over the last two days which is disappointing. I hit into the bunker so many times this week and that it cost me a shot every time.

A fortnight after claiming her maiden LET title at the ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters, American Beth Allen is now targeting a unique UK double with victory at the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open, starting on Friday.

“The win has certainly given me confidence in my golf and I'm hoping it shows in Scotland,” said Allen, 33, from San Diego in California.

The Falkirk based player is now ranked third on the Ladies European Tour order of merit, behind Gwladys Nocera and Melissa Reid. She is excited to return to Dundonald Links on Scotland’s west coast, in North Ayrshire, where she finished third in a Paul Lawrie Ladies Tartan Tour event last June.
