2015 05 Champ Breakfast Main2

Marvellous McIlroy

Rory McIlroy smashed many records en route to his second victory at Quail Hollow, including the lowest tournament score, most birdies, largest margin of victory and beating his own record of the lowest round with an 11-under par 61.

Since his maiden win on the PGA Tour at Quail Hollow in 2010, McIlroy has won 11 times, three more than second-placed Tiger Woods in that time with eight.

And since winning the Open last year, the 26-year-old has played in 19 tournaments, won six, 12 top five finishes and 15 top ten finishes. Impressive stuff indeed from the world No.1.

Wells Fargo Championship - Round Three

Phil finding form

Aside from his runner-up finish at the Masters last month, Phil Mickelson recorded comfortably his best finish of the season in a tie for fourth at the Wells Fargo Championship, nine shots behind winner McIlroy.

The five-time major winner was satisfied with his week’s performance and said: “I had a good week as far as building momentum and improving the areas that I needed to work on. I really worked hard on my short putts and putted those phenomenal.”

And when asked about McIlroy’s showing, Mickelson kept it short, merely saying, “it’s impressive” and leaving it at that.

Open de Espana - Day Four

Morrison reigns in Spain

James Morrison notched his second European Tour win and his first since the 2010 Madeira Islands Open with a four-shot victory at the Spanish Open.

The 30-year-old Englishman shared the lead with David Howell heading into the final round and saw off the advances of a formidable chasing pack including Miguel Angel Jimenez and Francesco Molinari to win on ten-under.

“It feels amazing,” Morrison told the European Tour. “It’s been five years and I’ve had a lot of chances between then and now to win and haven’t done it but I drew on all my experience and got over the line.”

Open de Espana - Day Two

Jimenez holes out … twice!

After an ace on the par-3 8th on Friday sent Jimenez into a little dance, he was at it again on Sunday after holing out from the fairway for an eagle on the par-4 fifth.

The 51-year-old finished in a tie for second and afterwards, said: “I always try to have fun on the golf course especially this week,” said Jiménez. “The public is so nice with me and it’s nice to play well for them.

In case you missed it, here's his hole-in-one from Friday...

Ramsay and Jamieson finish strongly

With a 64 on Sunday, Scott Jamieson shot the lowest round of the tournament at the Spanish Open but it couldn’t lift him to any higher than T31 after earlier rounds of 72, 75 and 78.

Richie Ramsay was pleased with his weekend showing at El Prat after he fired in a 67 on Sunday to propel himself up to T15.

He tweeted:

Pretswell and Booth going well

In a radical change-up, the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open only started yesterday and two Scots appear to reaping the benefits of the alteration.

Pamela Pretswell is currently in second place after a second round of 65 moved her to nine-under and three shots behind leader Melissa Reid, while Carly Booth is three shots further back on six-under and in fourth place.
