RUMMY EARNS COMEBACK VICTORY JUST seven months after undergoing emergency surgery for an abdominal blockage that almost killed him, Brett Rumford has continued his recovery in the best possible fashion by winning the TX Civil & Logistics WA PGA Championship in Kalgoorlie. In his first tournament start since The Open Championship in July, Rumford played steady, solid golf to head into the final round with a four-shot lead. On a day that proved hard for low scoring, the experienced 38-year-old played smart golf to ensure his victory. He carded a mistake-free one under 71 to claim the title by two shots from fellow West Australian Daniel Fox, who carded a superb closing 66. “I’m surprised really, I wasn’t expecting much this week to tell you the honest truth,” Rumford said. “The golf course lent the UNIQLO Masters. Scott, who won back-to-back gold jackets in 2012-13, is enthusiastic about his return to Huntingdale, saying, “I am delighted that UNIQLO has taken up the title sponsorship of the Australian Masters and via this new event partnership, I’m excited to introduce UNIQLO's clothing to more Australians.

It made things a little bit interesting but it was just a strange day for me. Golf can give you everything one day and then it can just completely turn on you."
