Ryan Out-Foxes The Lot To Win In Perth!
He came to Perth without a career win on the European Tour and returns to Europe with his first win! Ryan Fox (pictured) scored a spectacular win over Spain’s Adrian Otaegui in the final of the ISPS HANDA Super 6 Perth tournament at Lake Karrinyup Country Club in Perth, Australia.
It was his first European Tour victory. The top 24 players advanced to the final day for the match play phase of the tournament with Fox winning three matches and Otaegui four before meeting in the six-hole final.
Ranked No.85 in the world at the start of the week, Fox will now inch towards the coveted top 50 in the world.
In the playoff for third, Paul Dunne edged out Vincent at the knockout hole to claim outright third.Read More
Korda Streaks Home The Winner!

South Korea’s Jin Young Ko kept pace with a round of 8-under par but fell short by two strokes to wrap up her round with a total score of 15-under par.

“Old Bones” Mickelson Bags Another One!
If you thought that Phil Mickelson (48) was old, think again! For the world’s favourite “lefty” Mickelson, proved yet again that his demolition of Tiger Woods in the recent mana-o-mano duel was no fluke. He came back to Pebble Beach on day five of extended play to complete his 44th Tour victory and did so easily, finishing at 19-under par with a 65.
Winning for the fifth time at Pebble, he maintained the three-stroke lead he had taken over Paul Casey and Scott Stallings when play in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was suspended because of darkness in the final round. Casey finished alone in second place, Stallings completed play Sunday. South Korea’s Si Woo Kim and Australia’s Jason Day were tied for 4th at 13-under par.
Although suspended play didn’t last six months, as it did for Mickelson at Pebble in 1998, that record is destined to stand as the “longest event in PGA history”. Mickelson won at the course for the first time in 1998 and the tournament was suspended for six months because of a several days of poor weather on the Monterey Peninsula. Play was suspended on Feb. 2 and resumed and ended on Aug. 17. Mickelson trailed Tom Watson and Tim Herron by one shot when play resumed and won with a 5-under 67.Read More
