Adam Scott returns to world top 20
November 15, 2010

Adam Scott claimed his third Barclays Singapore Open title with a composed performance at Sentosa Golf Club, completed on Monday with ten holes of the final round remaining after a five and half hour delay for thunderstorms on Sunday. The Australian landed his seventh European Tour title over the Serapong Course where he won in 2005 and 2006 with a closing round of 68 to finish 17 under par, three ahead of Anders Hansen. The win takes Scott, a former World Number 3, to 20th in the Official World Golf Ranking, an improvement of 21 spots.

A fairytale final round of 65 has earned Stuart Appleby his first Australian title in nearly ten years, the 2010 JBWere Masters at Victoria Golf Club. The 39-year-old shot up the leaderboard with six birdies to chip away at overnight leader Adam Bland who was unable to impose himself on the final day. Bland finished in 2nd place at nine-under, a shot behind Appleby, while Daniel Gaunt finished in 3rd at eight-under. Appleby moves to World Number 72, a jump of 34 positions.

Robert Garrigus fired a flawless eight-under-par final round of 64 to win the Children's Miracle Network Classic in Florida and retain his PGA Tour card. The 33-year-old had eight birdies on the Magnolia Golf Course to secure his first PGA title at 21 under par - three shots clear of fellow American Roland Thatcher, who had taken a four-stroke advantage into Sunday's final round. Garrigus leaps 108 spots in the Official World Golf Ranking to 149th.

Ryo Ishikawa picked up his third Japanese Golf Tour title of the season by winning the Taiheiyo Masters by two strokes from Brendan Jones. Starting the day tied with Hiroyuki Fujita, the 19-year-old had seven birdies and two bogeys in a final round of 67 over the Taiheiyo Club's Gotemba Course to finish 14 under par. The win takes Ishikawa to World Number 37, up 8 places.
