We start in Florida where Martin Kaymer held off Jim Furyk and a weather delay to win The Players Championship.

The victory, Kaymer's first on US soil since his win at the 2010 PGA Championship, including a remarkable 30-foot putt on 17.

“Obviously you cannot expect yourself to make that putt. That's what I said; I just played with a lot of instinct and there was a little bit of luck involved that the ball went in, and it was quite a nice feeling walking onto 18 knowing that you have a one-shot lead… but the thought process, 17, it was a good putt with a little bit of luck. Fortunately it happened at the right hole.”

Across to the European Tour where Daniel Brooks’ maiden victory at the Madeira Islands Open was overshadowed by the death of caddy Iain McGregor.

The Zimbabwean, who was working for Alistair Forsyth, suffered a heart-attack on the ninth fairway.

There were many paying tribute to McGregor including Gary Player.

We finish at the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open where Valentine Derry picked up her first win.

The Frenchwoman finished seven under, two clear of Malene Jorgensen and Charley Hull a further stroke back.
