Hi, I'm Zara Buck and this is your latest instalment of Golfing World news. With all of the major tours in action we start at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open. Stewart Cink and Martin Laird lead the way in the second PGA event of the season. The pair are one shot ahead of the field at seven under par. The European tour have two events running simultaneously this week.

At the Hong Kong Open Ernie Els celebrated his 45th birthday by taking the clubhouse lead at minus nine. Over at the London Club Victor Dubuisson and Joost Luiten are the only players to have won both their matches at the Volvo World Match Play Championships. Reigning champion Graeme McDowell lost to Miko Illonen whilst Patrick Reed beat Paul Casey 2 and 1.

And finally to some good news for all you fans of the great white shark. Just week after severely injuring his hand in a chainsaw accident, Greg Norman has announced that he will be able to play golf again and has set a date for his comeback. Norman will make his return to action in the pro-am ahead of the Franklin Templeton shootout on December the 8th.
