Francesco Molinari enters world top 15
November 8, 2010

Francesco Molinari claimed a stunning wire-to-wire victory at the World Golf Championships – HSBC Champions following a titanic battle with World Number One Lee Westwood. Molinari - who claimed his only previous European Tour win at the 2006 Italian Open - carded a final round 67 to retain the one-shot lead he took into the final round at Sheshan International GC. Richie Ramsey and Luke Donald shared third place a distant ten strokes behind the winner. Francesco climbs 16 places to World Number 14, a career high and now three spots ahead of his brother Edoardo who was behind the 18th green to greet his victorious sibling. Westwood strengthens his position as World Number One and is now 0.63 average points ahead of Tiger Woods in second spot.

Warren Abery dropped two shots in a row on the eighth and the ninth holes in the final round of the Nashua Masters on the Sunshine Tour, but he birdied the 10th and 12th to coast to victory at the Wild Coast Sun Country Club. His two stroke victory came over fellow South Africans Alex Haindl, Oliver Bekker and Branden Grace. The win takes Abery to World Number 412 a leap of 480 positions.

This week’s other winner was Adam Hadwin at the Desert Dunes Classic on the Canadian Tour.
