Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 155 - The Open wrap
PIERCY REBOUNDS, HENSBY RESURFACES SCOTT Piercy captured his third PGA Tour title with a dominant performance at the alternate-field Barbasol Championship in Alabama. The 36-year-old took the inaugural event by three strokes over Will Wilcox to cap a successful return from injury. Piercy required a medical exemption to begin this season after he missed a large portion of 2014 due to surgery to repair a torn flexor muscle in his right arm. Piercy, who began Sunday tied with Whee Kim, piled on four birdies in the first six holes to break clear and carried that lead for much of the round. Only a Wilcox birdie bomb on the last green of the Robert Trent Jones Grand National course trimmed the lead to three, but it wasn’t enough to surpass Piercy’s second successive 65. The first Barbasol champion said he felt a victory was inevitable once he found his way back to full health. “I just knew it was a matter of time coming back and it’s been a long road, but my whole goal after having surgery was to come back better,” Piercy said. “The way I played today compared to my last two victories was a lot better. I mean, I flushed it, I struck the ball so well, and so I would say I’m kind of where we imagined I would be.” MORE> _______________________________ JOY FOR CHOI AT LAST CHELLA Choi’s father promised he would caddie for her until she won on the LPGA Tour and Ji Yeon Choi can start planning his next move after Chella captured the appropriately named Marathon Classic in a playoff for her maiden victory. Choi defeated countrywoman Ha Na Jang with a par at the first extra hole after catching the overnight leader with a bogey- free 66 on Sunday at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Ohio. Their playoff ended quickly when the also-winless Jang struck her approach shot over the green, allowing Choi to make a par for victory. “The first-time win is hard, but the second and third is easier. Hopefully this is a turning point for me,” Choi said.
