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.”

Dustin Johnson Wins WGC - HSBC Champions PDF Print E-mail


Dustin Johnson celebrates the biggest victory of his career.

Shanghai, China - In this new era of professional golf it's hard to tell when

the season ends and the next begins. The 2014 season is already underway,

and yet it's just the beginning of November . . . go figure.

At the first World Golf Championship of the 2014 season - The HSBC Champions

at Sheshan International Golf Club in China, Dustin Johnson looked dominant in

the opening rounds, but after a few hiccups in round 3 (and early in the final

round), he was overtaken by Ian Poulter briefly. On the back nine Sunday, he

proved that superior ball striking is tough to beat. DJ finished at -24 at Sheshan

International GC for his eighth career victory (a new tournament record). "It's

the biggest win I've had in my career so far," he said. "Those guys put a lot of

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

Johnson made three birdies and a chip in eagle at the 276 yd par 4 -16th for

a back nine 31 to finish off the victory, and end the hopes of contenders Ian

Poulter who finished 3 shots back at -21, and Graeme McDowell at -20. All

three players carded final round 66's.

Sergio Garcia was red hot on Sunday shooting 63 for a 4th place (six shots

back at -18). Justin Rose finished 5th at -16, while Irishman Rory McIlroy

finished T6 at -15. Phil Mickelson shot a final round 65 to finish 14th at 12

under par.









Ryan Moore Wins the CIMB Classic PDF Print E-mail


Ryan Moore celebrates his victory at the CIMB Classic

Malaysia - Ryan Moore and Gary Woodland were all tied up at 14 under par after

72 holes at the CIMB Classic. Moore shot a final round 70, and Woodland 69. The

event would need a sudden death playoff on Monday (because of darkness) to

determine a champion at Kuala Lampur Golf & Country Club.

The playoff started (and ended) at the 634 yard par 5 18th, where Moore had 157

yards for his third shot, his 8 iron shot was pured to 4 feet. With the pressure on,

Woodland missed the green into the right rough from 136 yards away. Woodland

chipped to two ft and secured his five. Moore calmly stepped up and poured his

birdie putt dead center for the win, the third of his PGA Tour career. Afterward

Moore talked about the approach shot "I had a great opportunity there on 18 with

my third shot and it was just an absolute perfect number," he said. "It was

coincidentally the exact shot I was working on on the range."

Moore has found a groove during the fall the last two seasons, last year winning the

Shriners at Las Vegas, and now in Malaysia. "I've always enjoyed playing in the fall.

I'm not sure why", he said. "It's actually kind of funny, I won a week before my son

was born last year; I won a week after (his birthday) this year."

After a hot start through 36 holes, Keegan Bradley had a tough weekend (76-72)

finishing 10th at -9.

Other notables: Sergio Garcia, Billy Horschel and Stewart Cink all finished at -8

(tied for 11th). Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson finished tied for 19th (at -5).
