Inbee Park has ended her almost-year long tour title drought by winning the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic.

The Korean carded 10 birdies in her final round to equal the course record with a 61 and beat Cristie Kerr by three strokes as she finished 23 under par.

Next up Park will attempt to defend her US Open title, her previous win on Tour:

"It's, the first time I really putted really well in a while so this is really happy that, you know, that my putter is finally back and, especially that it's, I think it's a really good timing."

Ben Crane has ended an almost three year wait for his fifth PGA Tour title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Despite bogeying the last, Crane held off the challenge of Troy Merritt to claim his victory since the 2011 McGladrey Classic.

Mikael Lundberg ended an even longer barren-spell on the European Tour as he clinched the Lyoness Open in Austria.

The Swede, who had not won since the 2008 Russian Open sunk a 40-foot birdie putt to upset home favourite Bernd Wiesberger in a playoff.

And finally we end with the ladies amateur game where USA defeated Great Britain and Ireland to reclaim the Curtis Cup.

Needing just a point from Sunday’s singles, the American’s got it in the opening match as U.S. Women's Amateur champion Emma Talley defeated Bronte Law - the American’s eventually running out 13-7 winners.

Well that’s all for today, join us tomorrow when we’ll begin to look ahead to this weekend’s US Open. In the meantime follow us on Twitter @golfingworldtv and we’re also on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for watching.
