Aussies Win World Cup, Jason Day Wins Individual Title PDF Print E-mail

 

Jason Day and Adam Scott celebrate their World Cup victory on home soil



Melbourne - Adam Scott holed his approach into the first on Sunday, and Jason Day did the same

at the sixth as the Aussies rolled at the ISPS Handa World Cup on home soil at Royal Melbourne.

Team Australia finished the competition at -17, ten strokes ahead of the American squad of Matt

Kuchar and Kevin Streelman. The last team to win the World Cup on home soil was the South African

team of Ernie Els and Wayne Westner at Cape Town in 1996. The victory was Australia's fifth World

Cup title.

 

Jason Day won the individual title, his first victory since the 2010 HP Byron Nelson Classic. It was

an emotional triumph for Day, who played down under with a heavy heart, losing 8 family members

in the typhoon that slammed into the Philippines just over a week ago. "It's just been an amazing

tournament for me," Day said. "My mother, my family, coming down to support me. I'm just so happy

the hard work has paid off, and I'm glad it happened in Melbourne. It would have been the easiest

thing for me to just go ahead and pull out of the tournament with what has been going on over the

last week. But I really wanted to come down here and play."

 

Day's final round 70 was enough for a 10 under par total, two strokes ahead of Thomas Bjorn (71),

who faltered down the stretch with two late bogeys. Adam Scott finished third at -7 shooting a final

round 66. "Scotty" goes for the Aussie "Triple Crown" next week at Royal Sydney.

Dubai, United Emirates - Henrik Stenson completed his dream season and a historical first on Sunday,

winning both the Fedex Cup on the PGA Tour and the European Tour's Race To Dubai in the same season .

Stenson's six stroke victory at Jumeirah Golf Estates was dominant, his eagle on the 72nd hole capped

off a final round 64 and a tournament record -25 under par.


Ian Poulter's Sunday 66 was good for solo second place at -19, while last weeks winner Victor Dubuisson

finished 3rd at -17. Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood finished T5 at -15.

 

"It has been an incredible summer for me, the (autumn) in America was great and now this," said Stenson,

who was also second in The Open Championship and third in the US PGA Championship. "It has been a

dream season. "I played so well this week. I knew the guys would try to catch me, especially Ian who never

gives up. I wanted to stay ahead of him and I managed to do that. "I don't know how I am going to be able

to top this next year but I am going to give my best in the Majors and that (becoming the first male Swedish

player to win one) would be the icing on the cake."

Adam Scott continues his domination down under, defending his Australian Masters title

 

 

Royal Melbourne - Adam Scott didn't have his best stuff Sunday, shooting 71 during the final

round of the Australian Masters at Royal Melbourne. At one point surrendering a five stroke lead

and trailing by two, Scott's birdied the 15th, while Matt Kuchar bogeyed the 16th to even things up.

Kuchar found trouble on the 18th in "Dunk Island", which paved the way for Scott's 2nd victory in

a row and a winning score of -14. Kuchar finished with a final round 68 (two shots back at -12).

Vijay Singh shot 71 and finished solo 3rd at -10.


“Sometimes you kind of win a little bit ugly and all the good stuff I had done in the first three rounds

counted for a lot,” Scott said.“And even though it wasn’t the prettiest golf today like I had played the

first three, there was enough good stuff to keep me in there and I hit good shots coming down the

stretch when I had to and that again is important stuff.”

On the PGA Tour Chis Kirk won the McGladrey Classic at the Seaside Course at Sea Island.

 


St.Simons Island, Georgia - Chris Kirk overcame a blistering round by Tim Clark (62), and a

faltering Briny Baird to win the McGladrey Classic hosted by his boyhood idol - Davis Love.

 

Kirk finished with a final round 66 (par 70) to finish at -14 (266), the victory punches his ticket

to Augusta in April, as well as the Hyundai tournament of Champions in Hawaii.


"To come here to Sea Island, which is a place that I love and cherish so much, and Davis's

tournament, it just an unbelievable thing," Kirk said. "Davis was kind of my guy when I was 12

and 13, really starting to play golf. He was my favorite player, and he's turned from being my idol

to sort of a mentor and good friend. So I'm a very lucky person to be in that situation, and to win

his tournament really means a lot to me."

pressure on me. I'm really proud of how I handled myself".
