Who won what and where: Broberg sneaks home in China

Hundred wins for Sweden on the European Tour
 

European Tour: BMW Masters – Kristoffer Broberg

Broberg became the 100th Swedish winner on the European Tour after claiming his first title with a play-off birdie against Patrick Reed.
The 29-year-old, who won four times on the Challenge Tour in 2012, closed with a four-under 68 while Reed, who pitched in with a 97-yard bunker shot for an eagle at the 15th and then birdied the next, crucially dropped one on 17.
The pair went back down the 18th and Broberg holed a 15-footer to move just outside the top 60 in the world.
Thongchai Jaidee had begun the day with a one-shot lead and he had a putt on the last to force his way into the play-off, as did Byeong-hun An, but both men had to settle for a share of third at 16 under alongside Lucas Bjerregaard and Henrik Stenson.
Danny Willett finished in a tie for 28th to close the gap on Rory McIlroy to just 1,613 points.

 

What Broberg said: “I worked so hard all my life for this. I’m just so happy to win on the main tour, because I won four times on the Challenge Tour.  I’m just so happy to win, because I worked so hard all year.
“Patrick’s short game was unbelievable all day. I was playing really good the front nine, and I was struggling a bit, a little nervous. On the last the four last holes, I was really, really nervous.”

LPGA Tour: Lorena Ochoa Invitational – Inbee Park

The Korean made it win number five for the season after finishing birdie-birdie in Mexico for a 64 and three-shot win over Carlota Ciganda.

The Spaniard went one better with a best-of-the-week 63, she was six under for her first seven holes, but Park was too good. It was some effort for the World No 2 as she had to withdraw from her last event in China because of a cyst on her left middle finger.

Park’s compatriot Sei Young Kim, who has won three times this season, was third. World No 1 Lydia Ko chose not to play with the Tour Championship taking place this week.



What Park said: “I think it was definitely the putter, it was really good this week. I made a lot of birdies this week, it was a lot of fun with Carlota playing so well, I didn’t know I needed an eight under to win. So it was almost a perfect day, I didn’t make any mistakes, so I was able to focus on my game.”
