May 24, 2010

England's Simon Khan, the world number 471 and not even in the event until Monday, was in dreamland at Wentworth Club when he came from seven behind to win the European Tour's Flagship event the BMW PGA Championship. The 37 year old from Essex, who faced an uncertain future when he had to go back to The European Tour Qualifying School last November, produced the biggest final-day comeback in the history of The European Tour's flagship event. The win takes Khan to world number 106.

Jason Day nearly dropped out of the HP Byron Nelson Championship before it began. He wound up winning the tournament. Despite a 2-over 72 in the final round, Day got his first PGA Tour win in Dallas. The wins takes Day to 79 a jump of 92 positions.

This weeks other winners were John Riegger at the Rex Hospital Open on the Nationwide Tour, Floris de Vries at the Mugello Tuscany Open on the Challenge Tour and Bae Sang-moon at the SK Telecom Open on the OneAsia Tour.
