    On the Asian Tour, Englishman Lee Westwood posted a final round 67 in the Thailand Golf Championship to win by one stroke.  Westwood's victory marks the second time he has lifted the trophy in this event.

    ''I played some really good shots and made a couple of safe putts, hit a lot of fairways." Westwood later said of his play on Sunday.

    Westwood relied on DryJoys Casual golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove en route to the victory.

  • Chalmers Wins Second Leg of Australian Triple Crown

    Add Comment

    Aussie, Greg Chalmers won the Australian Open two weeks ago and quickly rode his new found confidence to another victory in the Australian PGA Championship. 

    Six strokes behind at the beginning of the final round Chalmers was a long shot to take home the trophy.  Knowing he would have to go low to have a chance, Chalmers wearing DryJoys Tour made six birdies en-route to a final round 67 - the low round of the day.  With the addition of some sloppy play by the third round leaders and Chalmers was sitting atop the leaderboard in a three-way tie for first place.  Now headed to a playoff, Chalmers' competitors hit wild tee shots opening the door for Chalmers to win the tournament with a routine par. 

    Chalmers later stated, "I was surprised to see that a par was good enough, but that's how it goes sometime in a playoff."  With the win, he now has a chance to claim the Australian Triple Crown at the Australian Masters in two weeks. 

    Fellow Australian, Adam Scott finished tied for fourth and feels that his game is shaping up nicely, stating post-round, "I feel like the second half of this year I have been right in the mix, it's something to work on for next year. I feel like I'm knocking on the door.''

  • Chalmers Takes Home the Emirates Australian Open

    Add Comment

    Greg Chalmers held off the 54-hole leader and fellow countryman John Senden (FJ ICON and StaSof) to win the Emirates Australian Open title at The Lakes Golf Club in Sydney.  Senden had a two stroke lead over Chalmers at the start of the final round.  Stumbling out of the gate, Senden dropped three shots in the first four holes to open the door for Chalmers. 

    Chalmers, wearing DryJoys Tour, seized the opportunity with birdies on the first two holes to create a two stroke lead.  Senden fought back on the back nine, cutting the lead to one until Chalmers birdied the par three fifteenth to extend the lead. 

    Senden responded with a birdie on the 17th, cutting the lead back to one.  On the final hole Chalmers would miss the green in a tricky spot while Senden hit the green and had a good look at birdie.  Senden's birdie putt narrowly skirted across the hole, and Chalmers would get up and down for par to win the tournament.

    This is the second time Chalmers won the Emirates Australian Open; the victories coming 12 years apart.
