The PGA tour played the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida. Still hot off his victory in Phoenix three weeks ago, Scottie Scheffler (-5) didn't battle the course and stayed calm with pars on his final six holes. Expecting to play extra holes, the 25 year old American was on the driving range when he found out that his even par 72 was good enough to claim a second tour title. See his winning highlights here. Tied for second place were Billy Horschel (-4) from the USA who narrowly missed a 30 footer on the final hole that would have forced a playoff, 2020 winner Tyrell Hatton from England and Norway's Viktor Hovland who looked to have the tournament wrapped up until his closing 74. Sharing fifth place were American duo Gary Woodland (-3) and Chris Kirk. Aussies making the cut were Lucas Herbert (-2) whose closing 68 was the lowest of the day and he tied for seventh, Adam Scott (+4), Matt Jones (+8) and Marc Leishman (+11).

Puerto rico

The rest of the PGA tour held the Puerto Rico Open at the Grand Reserve Golf Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. Starting the final wet and windy day with a three shot lead and with only one bogey on his card all week, Ryan Brehm (-20) from the USA closed with a flawless 67. Having lost his mother last year, needing a 1st or 2nd to retain his card, playing on a one time medical exemption and with his wife on the bag, the 35 year old claimed his first tour title and a much appreciated two year exemption. See final round highlights here. Fellow American Max McGreevy (-14) was solo second followed by compatriots Brandon Wu (-13) and Tommy Gainey (-13). Sharing fifth place were England's Callum Tarren (-12) and Chad Ramey from the USA. Australians in the field were Mark Hensby (-11) tied for seventh along with Cameron Percy, Aaron Baddeley (-8), Greg Chalmers (-5) and Brett Drewitt (-4).


The Champions tour held the Hoag Classic at the Newport Beach CC in Newport Beach, California. Starting the day one shot back, South African Retief Goosen (-15) hit his first shot into a fairway bunker. Coming back from shoulder surgery, the two time US Open champion holed out for eagle and then added a couple of quick birdies eventually closing with a 63 for his second senior title. Alone in second place was Korea's KJ Choi (-11) followed by Lee Janzen (-9) from the USA who shared third place with Canada's Stephen Ames. Tied for fifth place were American duo Doug Barron (-7) and Tim Petrovic. Overnight leader Ernie Els (-6) from South Africa closed with a 73 to be solo seventh. Australians in the field were Rod Pampling (-4), Stuart Appleby (+3), Stephen Leaney (+9) and David McKenzie (+12).


The European tour played the Magical Kenya Open at the Muthaiga GC in Nairobi, Kenya. After starting the day four shots off the lead and then closing with 65, Ashun Wu (-16) collected his 4th Euro title and cemented himself as the most successful Chinese player on tour. Sharing second place were Canadian Aaron Cockerill (-12), South African Thriston Lawrence and Germany's Hurly Long. David Horsey (-11) was alone in fifth place followed by fellow Englishman Daniel Gavins (-10) who tied for sixth along with Frenchman Matthieu Pavon. The only Aussie in the field was Blake Windred (+3).


The European Challenge tour held the Mangaung Open at Bloemfontein Golf Club in Bloemfontein, South Africa. After starting the final day five shots back, Denmark's Oliver Hundebøll (-21) closed with a 66 for a one shot maiden victory. Sharing second place were South African duo Luke Jerling (-20) and Tristen Strydom. Overnight leader Craig Ross (-19) from Scotland closed with a 73 and tied fourth along with Spaniard Scott Fernandez. Sharing sixth place were English duo Jamie Rutherford (-18) and John Parry and South African's Keenan Davidse and Jbe Kruger. There were no Australians in the field.


The LPGA and LET held the HSBC Women's World Championship at the Sentosa Golf Club on the Tanjong course in Singapore. Starting the day one shot back, World #1 Jin Young Ko (-17) birdied four of her last five holes but was still looking at a playoff coming down the last. Shrugging off the pressure, the 26 year old Korean birdied the 18th and claimed her 24th professional title. Sharing second place were Australia's Minjee Lee (-15) and In Gee Chun from Korea. Tied for the lead as she played the final hole, Korea's Jeongeun Lee6 (-14) had a double bogey and ended up joint fourth along with Thai superstar Atthaya Thitikul. Other Aussie girls in the exclusive field were Hannah Green (-13) who tied for sixth, Su Oh (-6) and Sarah Kemp (+4).

The Asian tour played the International Series Thailand at the Black Mountain Golf Club in Prachaubkhirikhan, Thailand. After opening his week with a course record 62, Sihwan Kim (-26) started the final round three shots back. The 34 year old American fired off 8 birdies in his first 10 holes, closed with a 63 and after 10 years on tour finally got himself into the winners circle. See some highlights here. Overnight leader Phachara Khongwatmai (-24) from Thailand closed with a 68 to be solo second. Sharing third place were Ian Snyman (-22) from South Africa and Thailand's Itthipat Buranayarat. Six players were tied for fifth place on 19 under par. Aussies making the weekend cut were Todd Sinnott (-17), Wade Ormsby (-15), Andrew Dodt (-13), Kevin Yuan (-10), Josh Younger (-10) and Andrew Martin (-7).

tps syd

The Australasian tour and the WPGA jointly played the TPS Sydney at Bonnie Doon GC in Pagewood, NSW. With the rain playing havoc, the final round was eventually abandoned and a playoff was required to decide the winner. Third round leaders Jarryd Felton (-15) and Brendan Jones headed out to the 18th for sudden death and after draining his 15 footer for birdie it was Hannah Green's boyfriend Felton who returned to the winners circle. Tied for second place were Austin Bautista (-12), Brady Watt and Lucas Higgins. The best placed female was Grace Kim (-11) who shared sixth along with David Micheluzzi. Newcastle’s Jake Riley (-5) was the winner of the junior section.


The Australian Legends tour held a full week of tournaments in Victoria starting with the Portsea Legends Pro-Am at the Portsea GC.
