Brendan Steele wins the Safeway Open for the second year running
The 34-year-old wasn’t leading when the final round began as he was two shots off the lead. In spite of bogeys at 16 and 18, Brendan had a solid last round with five birdies in the first 14 holes to beat fellow American Tony Finau by two strokes in Napa. American golfer Tyler Duncan was in the lead at the start of the final day, but to his disappointment, he had six bogeys in a three over 75 to finish in the fifth place. Chesson Hadley finished in the third position, also shared by Phil Mickelson. British golfer Scot Martin Laird was the highest placed Briton, finishing 17th in the end.
Rory McIlory has still not forgotten his meet with former Manchester United player Roy Keane
The former world number one was able to make a young fan’s day last week at the British Masters by handing him his golf ball. It is surely a moment to remember for the youngest, but in the same context, Rory McIlroy had a bad experience in his childhood. Rory has been a Manchester United fan for a long time and once when he spotted former United midfielder Roy Keane at the Portmarnock Links Hotel, he went and asked him for his autograph. However, to Rory’s disappointment, the Irishman refused to give one and let a young Rory dejected. It is a moment that has stuck with the four-time major champion ever since his childhood and that is why Rory makes sure that he always signs for his young fans to leave them with good and happy memories. The Northern Irishman will be seen playing at the Old Course at St. Andrews.
Tyrrell Hatton wins the Dunhill Links Championship
The Englishman became the first golfer to defend the Dunhill Links Championship recording a 3 shot victory at St Andrew’s. Tyrrell started the final day five ahead and shot a six under 66 to record a victory on 24 under. He ensured a comfortable lead at the top with birdies in four holes following a penalty drop. Having finished third at the European Masters last month and eighth at the British Masters last week, Hatton will surely be pleased winning his second European title. Ross Fisher gave a tough fight but only to finish second as he set a new course record courtesy an 11 under 61. Rory Mcllroy finished 20 strokes behind Hatton as the World number six will end the year 2017 without a title.
