First to the PGA tour where Billy Horschel was able to retain his overnight lead going into the fourth round of the BMW Championship. Sergio Gargia was two shots behind at the start of play on Sunday, but collapsed as the Spaniard carded a triple-bogey at the seventeenth. Elsewhere Rory McIlroy finished in a tie for eighth alongside Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott. Horschel’s win however couldn’t have come at a better time, as he now finds himself second in the FedExCup standings.

"You know, it just means a lot. I haven't had the greatest season and, you know, I didn't have my game today. It was funny, I warmed up - couldn't have a better warm-up session this morning - and played the first couple of holes good and then it was just grinding and made some big putts and I can rely on my putter because I'm a good putter inside 10 feet and, you know, this feels good. Obviously after last week a lot of people, you know, on Twitter and out there wanted to call me a choker and that I choked - I didn't choke, I just made a bad swing at the wrong time.

To the European Masters in Switzerland now where American David Lipsky survived a tense play off against Graeme Storm, to secure his first European Tour title. Storm however won’t be too disappointed after landing himself a BMW following a hole in one on the eleventh. Elsewhere Englishman Danny Willet carded a 63 which left him 16 under alongside his compatriot Tommy Fleetwood, with Ryder Cup qualifier Jamie Donaldson behind in seventh.

Finally to the Ladies European tour which saw Dewi Claire Schreefel finish seven strokes clear of Rebecca Artis at the Helsingborg Open in Sweden. This Birdie Putt on eighteen sealed the victory which is her first on the tour:

"Yes I mean it's a good way to win. Rebecca (Artis) had a good chase on and I was glad just to be playing well and keep up with her, and I can't find a better way than this."
