Aussie Scott Strange cruised to a flawless vistory in the Celtic Manor Wales Open, closing with a stunning round of 64 to take the title by four clear shots. The first playing of the Wales Open on the 2010 course which will play host to the Ryder Cup in two years time brought some tough conditions as rain and wind made the course play its full yardage, but Strange was more than man enough to accept the challenge. Despite suffering from dizzy spells on the course on Saturday Scott was able to put these behind him and focus on scoring, which he did with a fantastic final tally of 22 under par for the event.
Swede Robert Karlsson continued his strong run of form with another second place, who by his own admission was playing as well as he could and was impressed to see Strange maintaining the margin. Both players relied on the Tour proven performance and comfort of FootJoy Classics Dry Premiere Golf Shoes and FootJoy StaSof Golf Gloves. Both products made from the finest materials available, made for the finest golfers on the European Tour.

Lorena Ochoa found a new way to win at the Sybase Classic, by grinding it out, instead of leaving the field in her wake. In a tournament reduced to 54 holes after Friday’s play was washed out, the world number 1 finished on 10 under par 206, one stroke ahead of five rivals.
The victory was the 22nd for Ochoa since April 2006, and the $300,000 prize pushed her career earning past the $12 million mark, making her the fastest player on the LPGA to reach that plateau.
