Horschel wins BMW Championship

America’s Billy Horschel won his second PGA Tour title on Sunday after a high-pressure final round. Horschel outpaced both Bubba Watson and Ryan Palmer who challenged him for the title during the final round.

Horschel’s short game set him apart on Sunday, with effortless precision putting keeping the American a shot clear of the competition on the back nine. Despite the pressure, he kept a cool head and appeared relaxed during the closing holes of the competition to finish two strokes ahead of Watson. Fellow-American Morgan Watson was a stroke behind Watson in third place.

Horschel’s road to victory was bumpy at times, with the champion letting go of an outright lead several times on Sunday. While Palmer almost had him trapped on the front nine, a birdie at the 7th hole – covering more than 20 feet – brought him back into the lead in style.

Watson’s challenge was similarly close, but Horschel’s determination to win allowed him to out-manoeuvre the big hitter to lift the trophy.

Lipsky wins European Masters

America’s David Lipsky won the European Masters in a playoff on Sunday, beating Graeme Storm of the United Kingdom at the first extra hole.

Sunny weather created the perfect conditions for a playoff as the final round came to a close with Lipsky and Storm tied for the lead. A tightly contested battle for victory ensued, with both players keen to lift the trophy.

Lipsky’s victory came after an extra hole which saw his ball land in a bunker and then in the rough – a usually deadly combination for any golfer, much less a playoff champion. However, Lipsky managed to chip onto the green, and with a short two-foot putt he was able to make par while his rival had to settle for a birdie.

Lipsky is now the highest-ranked player on the Asian Tour.
