FootJoy player Gregory Bourdy won the UBS Hong Kong Open this weekend to claim his third European Tour Title. The Frenchman had to dig deep to defend his lead from the inform Rory McIlroy who had to be content with second place for the second consecutive year. The 27-year-old Bourdy never relinquished his lead throughout the final round, and proved unflappable as the young Northern Irishman increased his pressure. Bourdy played consistenly in his final round, with birdies at the 5th & 6th moving him closer to the title. Meanwhile, McIlroy was showing his brilliance to get back into to contention after starting the day five shots off the pace, but his final round 64 could only secure him second place. Bourdy, who won his last title in 2008, collected the first place prize of €279,288 as well as guaranteeing himself a place in the Dubai World Championship next week. McIlroy had some consolation in his defeat, knowing that his second place finish was enough to move him to the summit of the Order of Merit ahead of his fellow FJ ICON and PureTouch wearer Lee Westwood.
