APGG - Rose Is In Full Bloom!

Olympic champ Justin Rose (pictured) turned on the turbo-chargers as he raced into the lead at the 2017 Indonesian Masters.

The Englishman was in fiery form as he slam-dunked birdies galore for an opening round 10-under-par 62.

Thailand’s Gunn Charoenkul was two shots back in second place while fellow Thai Phachara Khongwatmai remained in the mix with a 65 which saw him share third place with Korea’s Giwhan Kim at the Asian Tour’s season-ending flagship event.

APGG - Public – No Say In Tournament Outcome

Starting Jan. 1, 2018,  television viewers will no longer be able to affect the outcome of golf tournaments.

A working group headed by the USGA and R&A has on this rules change. Additionally, the group has decided that rules officials at major events will be implemented to "monitor the video broadcast."

The group, consisting of the PGA Tour, LPGA, PGA European Tour, Ladies European Tour and The PGA of America, as well as the governing bodies, will implement the following measures from January 1, 2018:

*Assign one or more officials to monitor the video broadcast of a competition to help identify and resolve Rules issues as they arise

*Discontinue any steps to facilitate or consider viewer call-ins as part of the Rules decision process.

This most famously happened during the 2013 Masters when Tiger Woods was penalized after an errant drop following a call from a television viewer. There have been other instances, too, but that one is the fulcrum around which this argument swings.

APGG - A Star Is Born!

He is just 21 years old and he took on all-comers to emerge victorious.

India has a new golfing star and he is  Shubhankar Sharma (pictured) who claimed a maiden European Tour title at the rain-hit Joburg Open. The youngster returned to the course to card a final round 69 to secure a three-shot victory.

Sharma led for the final two rounds after a scintillating 61 on Friday and had 11 holes to complete after lightning, rain and hail forced the event into an extra day.

“It feels wonderful to have won, I actually wasn’t going to come to South Africa about a week ago, but in the end decided to travel and I ‘m really happy I did that,” Sharma said at the trophy presentation.

His tournament total of 23 under-par was three ahead of South African Erik van Rooyen (66), whose outright second place provided him with a best-ever European Tour finish.

South African Shaun Norris (65) finished tied for third with Finland’s Tapio Pulkkanen (68) at 17 under-par, a result that allows the former to join Sharma and Van Rooyen in the field at next year’s Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links.

APGG - Green Delivers The Goods!

The faith and hope in a young boy to make the grade in the professional game of golf has paid off big time. Not only did he make history but he has also signaled to his grandfather in heaven and his doting parents, Gary and Vivienne, that his journey to international stardom has begun!

Malaysia’s Gavin Green (pictured) is the top dog on the Asian Tour and he claimed that prestigious and glorious honour when he hit the pinnacle of the tour’s 2017 Order of Merit.

Green who had a stellar junior golf career and a spectacular record at the college level in the United States beat out the very best golfers in the region for the title.

With his latest win, the 23-year-old is now the second youngest golfer to win the accolade since 2004. Korea’s Seungyul Noh was 19 years old when he won the merit title in 2010.

The big-hitting Green who is a native of the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur opened up an unassailable lead on the merit list following his tied-19thfinish at the. US$1.2 million Joburg Open which paid him US$13,277.40 for a total of US$585,813.46 for this season.

As the tour’s big winner, Green has earned a five-year exemption on the Asian Tour and spots at next year’s The Open as well as the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Stricker and O'Hair closed with an 8-under 64 for a two-shot victory over Graeme McDowell and Shane Lowry. The winning pair finished at 26-under 190 and each earned US$410,000.

It was the second time Stricker and O'Hair won the team event hosted by Greg Norman. Pat Perez and Brian Harman shot 64 to finish third. Lexi Thompson, the only LPGA Tour player in the 12-team field, and Tony Finau closed with a 66 and tied for fourth.

APGG - Joburg Open Final Round Delayed

Joburg Open leader Shubhankar Sharma (pictured) made a nervous start to the final round, but was looking increasingly composed before thundershowers washed out most of the afternoon’s play.

The 21-year-old Indian began the day with a five-stroke lead and he was at 22-under-par for the tournament when the storm broke. Sharma looked in control even though rising South African star Erik van Rooyen had closed to within four shots with a momentum-gathering four birdies in five holes from the third.

The final round will now resume on Monday.

APGG - Sharma Does The Bolt At Joburg Open!

India’s Shubhankar Sharma (pictured) continued his blistering form by shooting a third round 7-under-par 65 to take a five-shot lead at the Joburg Open.

The 21-year-old surged to the top of the leaderboard on a 20-under-par 195 total at the approximately US$1.2 million event.

Sharma holds a fairly dominant lead over his closest challenger Christofer Blomstrand of Sweden, who registered a sparkling 62 on his 26th birthday. James Morrison of England and Erik Van Rooyen of South Africa were a further six shots back of the lead following rounds of 67 and 70 respectively.

The talented Indian will enter the final 18 holes as the leader for the first time in his career as he set his sights on the Joburg Open title and one of the three tickets available to The Open in 2018.
