The PGA tour season is underway with Sang-Moon Bae triumphing at the Open. The Korean held off a charge from Steven Bowditch to win by three strokes. The victory earns Bae his tour card for the next two years as well as a place at next year’s Masters and PGA Championship.

On the European tour, Alexander Levy picked up his second win of the year at a weather affected Portugal Masters. The tournament was reduced to 36 holes because of persistent rain. When conditions did allow, Levy carded rounds of 63 and 61 to finish three strokes clear of first round leader Nicolas Colsaerts.

Shanshan Feng won the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia by three strokes. Four birdies and an eagle on Sunday's back nine helped her overturn a four shot deficit and move up to fifth in the Rolex rankings. Lydia Ko missed her chance to replace current world number one Stacy Lewis as she finished in a tie for eighth.

And finally a story for all those frustrated golfers who just can't find the time to tee it up. It might interest you to know that yesterday was Barack Obama's 200th round of golf since taking office. That's almost 40 rounds a year since becoming President. If he can make time then so can you.
