Play is underway at the McGladrey Classic on the PGA Tour. The American quartet of Erik Compton, Brian Harman, Will Mackenzie and Michael Thompson share the first round lead at five under par.
At the European tour’s ISPS Handa Perth International Peter Whiteford carded back to back 66’s to hold a one stroke advantage. Three birdies and an eagle on his back nine leaves him at 12 under. Play was suspended at the inaugural Blue Bay LPGA with many of the field unable to start their second round. With Rolex rankings one and two Stacy Lewis and Inbee Park both skipping the event, Park will retake the world number one spot on Monday.
Sergio Garcia is the latest name to confirm their attendance at next months Turkish Airlines Open. His Ryder Cup team mates Henrik Stenson, Martin Kymer, Victor Dubuisson and Lee Westwood will all be in action at the final four event. Garcia is currently in second place behind Rory McIlroy in the Race to Dubai rankings, but with McIlroy taking time out to prepare for his upcoming court case the Spaniard could catch him with a strong finish to the season.
And finally to a golf hole dubbed the most dangerous in the world. The 192 yard par three is in a demilitarised zone on the North Korean border and is said to have live land mines in the rough, not where you'd expect to find LPGA star Paula Creamer who played the hole during a visit to US military troops based in South Korea.
That’s everything for today, we’ll be back on Monday with a roundup of the weekend’s action. Until then you can find us atgolfingworld.tv or on twitter, facebook or instagram. Bye for now.
