MCGIRT CLAIMS MEMORIAL IN EXTRA TIME LITTLE-known William McGirt outplayed a strong field littered with top-20 players to grab his maiden PGA Tour title at The Memorial, edging out fellow American Jon Curran on the second sudden death playoff hole. McGirt, whose only other professional win came in a mini-tour event nine years ago, played bogey-free golf for 20 holes on the windy final day to not only shoot a one under 71 but to claim the win in extra time. MORE> ______________________________________ FITZPATRICK ALL CLASS IN SWEDEN ENGLAND’S Matthew Fitzpatrick played his way into Ryder Cup contention with a classy three stroke victory at the Nordea Masters in Sweden. The 21-year-old dropped just four shots over the 72 holes – including a three-putt bogey at the final hole – on his way to becoming the youngest winner of the event, breaking the record previously set by Graeme McDowell, who was 23 when he won in 2002. It was also his second European Tour title in just 51 starts since turning professional in June 2014. MORE> NORDQVIST SURGES TO TITLE DEFENCE SWEDEN’S Anna Nordqvist fired a flawless final round seven under 64 to win the Shoprite LPGA Classic by a single stroke. On a windy final day, the defending champion grabbed five birdies on the front nine to put her name closer to the top of the leaderboard before further birdies at the 12th and 16th holes pushed her into the outright lead. The 28-year-old almost botched the closing hole but she recovered to hole a 12-foot par- saver to stay at 17 under and take the title by a shot from Japan’s Haru Nomura, who closed with a five under 66. MORE> ______________________________________ KO, NOMURA COMMIT TO WOMEN’S OPEN WOMEN’S world No.1 Lydia Ko is a confirmed starter for the 2017 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open to be played at Royal Adelaide Golf Club from February 16 to 19.
