We start with Adam Scott who has dislodged Tiger Woods as the world’s number one golfer.

Scott, who did not play this week, had been second to Woods for a total of 38 weeks but finally surpassed the 14-time major winner to become only the second Australian, after Greg Norman to achieve the feat.

He’s next in action at this week’s Crown Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

To matters on the course now and Miguel Angel Jimenez’s victory at the Open de Espana.

The Spaniard edged out Thomas Pieters and Richard Green in a playoff to finally secure his home open at the 27th time of asking.

At 50 years and 133 days, Jimenez also beat his own record of oldest winner on Tour and his 21st title in all.

From a seasoned vet to a first-time winner now as Brendon Todd picked up his first ever PGA Tour win at the Bryon Nelson Championship.

The 28-year-old’s final round 66 meant he finished 14 under par in Texas to edge out Mike Weir, who himself was looking for his first victory since 2007.

To the LPGA where Lizette Salas secured her first title at the Kingsmill Championship.

The 24-year-old Californian, who made seven top 10s in 2013, ended her hoodoo with a score of 13 under par, four strokes clear of the chasing pack.

That’s all for today, join us tomorrow when we’ll be at Wentworth to look ahead to this week’s BMW PGA Championship.
