Golf Results - 13 November 2012

In the United States, Charlie Beljan capped his rookie year with a win at the high-profile Children's Miracle Network Classic in Florida.

Beljan had been hospitalised on Friday when he experienced heart palpitations and had difficulty breathing, but made an impressive comeback in Sunday's final round. Despite an uncertain start over the first five holes, which saw the American card two birdies and two bogeys in succession, Beljan kicked his game into gear later in the final round and carded five birdies over six holes to clinch the title.

Second place at the tournament went to the Americans Robert Garrigus and Matt Every, who finished two strokes behind Beljan. Brian Gay, also of the United States, finished third.

For Beljan, who started the week lower than 130 in the world rankings, Sunday's victory will bring a newfound opportunity to compete on the PGA Tour. With a two-year exemption in hand, Beljan joins the winners circle in his rookie year, and will no doubt continue to impress fans as he makes his mark at the highest level of professional golf.

The European Tour travelled to Southeast Asia at the weekend, where the Singapore Open was won by the Italian Matteo Manassero in a dramatic playoff against South Africa's Retief Goosen.

After rainy weather delayed play at Sentosa Golf Club, Sunday's final round was extended to 36 holes to ensure a timeous ending to the tournament. 19-year-old Manassero seemed unfazed by a long day on the course as he entered a final-round playoff against Goosen, who had finished level with the Italians as play officially ended against the sparkling backdrop of Singapore's skyline.

The younger man held his nerve to beat Goosen at the third playoff hole, after the South African narrowly missed an opportunity for victory two holes before. The Italian lifted the trophy for the first time following a playoff victory on the European Tour, proving once again that he is excellent championship material.
