It looked almost certain that Thomas Bjorn the 3rd round leader had the BMW PGA Championship all tied up having put together exemplary rounds over the first 3 days, but a day of misfortune on the final day let Luke Donald climb the leader board to an eventual joint 3rd with Bjorn, and Shane Lowery to leap one ahead into second, but no one could have foreseen a final round of 66 from Rory McIlroy to leap ahead of the field and win the event by one shot.

The first time winner Mciiroy posting a final round of 66 led to him winning for the first time the European Tours Flagship event.

On a final day that saw trials and tribulation for the day’s opening leaders and chasing pack, his first European Tour win in 18 month’s was well deserved and it also being the flagship event was even sweeter after missing the cut at the last 2 years events.

Records were broken at the Open de Espana when on his 27th attempt Miguel Angel Jiménez won the event and also extended his record as the oldest player on the European Tour to win an event.

However it was not plain sailing for Jimenez, who let an early 2 shot lead slip away that resulted in a 3 way tie for the first place, however Jimenez showed no loss of resolve on the first playoff hole and took the tournament and title.

This win could be seen as a further contribution to a successful year for Jimenez, who was placed 4th at the Masters, won his Champions Tour debut even, and the first player to win twice on the the Race to Dubai in 2014., but also strengthens his bid for an automatic pick for the Ryder Cup in September.

Winning his home open and as the oldest on Tour play to win sets some standards that many younger players would like to emulate.

When asked what was his secret he alluded to Good Food, Wine, Cigars and a little exercise, however we may also like to add a good portion of great golfing ability as well.

The Madeira Islands Open produced a first time winner during a competition that had been over shadowed and saddened by the passing away of one the tours well know caddies. Iain McGregor.

The event already curtailed to 36 holes was unable to really rejuvenate itself and some players felt that in respect that they should not continue.

Finally the winner was not assured with the vent having to be decided with a play off between Daniel Brooks and Scott Henry with Brooks winning the play off.

Brooks looked secure at 9 under until Henry lit up the course with a series of birdies to finish equal first.

An awe inspiring final round of 62 resulted in a flip in the leader and eventual winner of The Championship at Laguna National, with the tournament winner playing the back 9 on the final day in just 28 shots with a stunning pair of 2’s on the final 2 holes to snatch victory from Hansen who had looked to be in control of the tournament, but the flying finish from Felipe Aguilar just stole the show.

With Hansen starting well on the front nine and building a lead that look almost certain to win the tournament however an indifferent back nine against Aguilars spectacular under on the back nine rebalanced the final round. And allowed Aquilar to clinch the win.

The tournament delivered a new first, with a tournament debutant winning the event on the first extra hole.

Hideki Matsuyama birdied the 18th hole for the fourth day running at The Memorial Tournament to finish tied with Kevin Na on the first extra playoff hole to land the tournament, the prize fund and FedEx cup points that moves him to 14th in the FedEx Cup leader board.

Setting the record for a first time appearance win since 1976, albeit he had played there with Adam Scott as a member of the international at The Presidents Cup.

Scott sort of helped him along by dropping out of the leader board race after hitting a shot into the water resulting in a double bogey.  Watson also fell away over the closing holes to allow Matsuyama to fight his way onto the play off.

The closing holes for Matsuyama were not without drama, with bogeys leading the final hole that looked to be another bogey coming along until the ball hit a tree and rebounded into the middle of the 18th Fairway leading to a birdie on the 18th to force a playoff with Na who had finished a couple of hours earlier.

What looked like a possible disaster on the playoff hole Matsuyama was let off of the hook when Na hit his ball into a water hazard, however Matsuyama did not make it easy after playing his 3 wood into a fairway bunker, his driver broke on the tee of the final hole, then hitting his shot into the crowd, with another kind bounce and a brave flop shot to deliver a 10 foot par putt and the win.
