SCOTT UNSURE ABOUT BAGMAN ADAM Scott heads into the FedEx Cup Playoffs unsure about who will caddie for him in his bid to reach the season- ending Tour Championship in late September. At the Wyndham Championship, the 2013 Masters Champion had his coach and brother-in-law Brad Malone on the bag, after Steve Williams returned to New Zealand on completion of his part- time duties at the PGA Championship. Following the lead of fellow Queenslander Jason Day, who has his Country Club, before entering into sudden death on the long par-4 18th hole. The deadlock was broken three holes later when Bransdon rolled in a birdie to secure the trophy and the $16,500 winner’s cheque. “Pretty excited, I am shaking like a leaf, it’s unbelievable,” said Bransdon, whose previous Tour wins were the 2010 WA PGA and 2013 Heritage Classic. “It’s been a couple of years since my last win but I am pretty proud of the way I played today and they way I hung in there.” Bransdon proved patience is a virtue, as he had to settle for 11 consecutive pars to begin his final round. Meanwhile playing partner Blizard moved into the lead heading into the back nine after recording back-to-back eagles par-5 8th and par-4 9th holes.

Trailing Victorian Adam Burdett by seven shots at the start of the final day, few would have given Becker, a final year trainee at Mandurah Country Club, much chance of finishing in the top-three let alone winning the event. One a day when the Riverside Oaks’ Bungool course gave up few birdies, coach Col Swatton on the bag, Malone took on the looping role for a one week only arrangement but Scott said it could prove to be a longer appointment. MORE> ______ ______ ______ ______ ______ __ BRANSDON WINS QLD OPEN VICTORIAN David Bransdon claimed the third Australasian PGA Tour title of his long career when he won the $110,000 Isuzu Queensland Open in a tense three-hole playoff with New South Welshman Rohan Blizard. The pair was locked at 12 under through 72 holes at Brisbane’s Brookwater Golf and Becker was making every post a winner. Six birdies and no bogies on the front nine, had Becker within four shots of Burdett. Three more birdies between the 10th and 15th holes narrowed the margin to just one shot, which remained the status quo until the final hole when Burdett three-putted for a double bogey and Becker made a birdie. The three- shot turnaround at the final hole gave Becker the trophy. "I am still in shock to be honest, I never saw Adam making a mistake like that but when that putt on 18 went in I was just overwhelmed,” said Becker, who will look to qualify for the PGA Tour of Australasia at the year-end Qualifying School. Burdett, who was also runner-up in 2014, said he was happy with his performance despite the final result. "I was pretty devastated when we walked off which I think was understandable but I really played well all week and just got beaten by an incredible round of golf today so hats off to Braden," Burdett said.
