Wallace claimed his second European Tour title of the season at the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Laerchenhof.

The 28-year-old Englishman’s final round 65 was good enough for a one-shot victory over Martin Kaymer, Mikko Korhonen and Thorbjorn Olesen.

Wallace’s iron play was the key to his success. He topped the Greens in Regulation stats for the week, hitting 79.2% of greens for the four rounds. The Englishman currently has a mixed bag of PING irons in his bag, including an i200 3-iron, that he uses as a 2-iron, iBlades in his 6 to 9-irons and a new prototype iron for his 3, 4 and 5 irons.

Watson, meanwhile, claimed his third PGA Tour title of 2018 courtesy of his third career victory in the Travellers Championship.

The win was the 39-year-old’s 12th on the tour and, in the immediate aftermath, the two-time major winner revealed details of his next big goal.

Bubba’ prodigious length off the tee was one of the keys to his third win at TPC River Highlands. He averaged 311 yards of the tee for the week using his pink PING G400 LST driver, and a staggering 323 yards during the final round.
