Now, while some of us were enjoying the Easter eggs this weekend, there was still some important

golf being played!

Matt Kuchar might have missed out on a green jacket at The Masters, but after his victory at this

weekend’s RBC Heritage, he’s now the proud owner of this tartan number.

Kuch’s score of 11 under par saw him edge out Luke Donald by one shot, after holing out from the

bunker at the last.

Whilst Donald came close, his compatriot Lee Westwood went one step better - tasting success over

at the Maybank Malaysian Open.

The Englishman blew away the field to finish seven strokes clear of Nicolas Colsaerts, Louis

Oosthuizen and Bernd Wiesberger, and win his first title in almost two years.

One man who didn’t enjoy the Malaysian experience quite so much was though was Pablo


During his second round, the Spaniard encountered a group of hornets and was allegedly stung 20

times before jumping in the water.

Luckily Larrazabal survived relatively unscathed from the attack, tweeting soon afterwards. And,

despite the altercation, Pablo still managed to finished eighth overall.

Across on the LPGA and an even longer winless streak is over - after Michelle Wie won at the LOTTE


The Hawaiian-native won on home soil to end almost four years without a victory, after edging out

Angela Stanford.

That’s all for today, we’ll be back tomorrow with more news from the golfing world. In the

meantime find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and use the #GWTV.
