Marcus Fraser breaks into top 100
April 26, 2010

Australia's Marcus Fraser won the Ballantine's Championship by four shots as a battling three under par final round 69 secured a wire-to-wire victory - his first in seven years. The 31 year old topped the leaderboard at 12 under par after dropping just two shots in three rounds of the weather-affected 54-hole tournament at Pinx Golf Club. Northern Ireland's Gareth Maybin shared second place with Australia's Brett Rumford. The win sees Fraser jump into the world top 100 at 98th place, a leap of 134 positions in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Jason Bohn won the Zurich Classic for his second PGA Tour title, birdieing three of the final four holes at TPC Louisiana for a 5-under 67 and a two-stroke victory over Jeff Overton. Bohn, who completed a third-round 71 in the morning in the weather-plagued tournament, finished at 18-under 270. He previously won the 2005 B.C. Open. Bohn improves his world ranking by 51 positions to 60th.

This week's other winners were Hiroyuki Fujita at the Tsuruya Open on the Japan Golf Tour, Ewan Porter at the South Georgia Classic Pres'd by First State Bank and Trust Company on the Nationwide Tour, Jbe' Kruger at the Africom Zimbabwe Open on the Sunshine Tour and Rob Grube at the Riviera Nayarit Classic Presented by IDN on the Canadian Tour.
