Scott up to 5th - Clarke closes on top 100

Australian Adam Scott made a 9-foot birdie putt on the 18th to force a playoff, then made a 48-footer playing it again on the third playoff hole to beat Ryan Moore in the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. On a cool and blustery final day Moore had shot a fine round of 68 to eliminate Scott's three stroke overnight advantage. With the win Scott moves up to world number 5, a jump of 5 positions, while Moore improves his world ranking by 37 positions to 72nd.

Darren Clarke won his first European Tour Tournament since 2003 as he claimed the BMW Asian Open, co-sanctioned with the Asian Tour, on his first competitive visit to China. Clarke and final day playing partner Robert-Jan Derksen tussled for the title throughout the final round, Clarke winning by a stroke with a thirty foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole. Clarke climbs 124 places up the Official World Golf Ranking to 112th.

Hur Suk-ho from Korea won the Tsuruya Open on the Japan Golf Tour by a single stroke from compatriot Kim Kyung-Tae and climbs 93 places to world number 206.

This week's other winners were Greg Chalmers at the Henrico County Open on the Nationwide Tour, Joakim Haeggman at the AGF-Allianz Open Côtes d'Armour Bretagne on the European Challenge Tour and John Ellis at the Corona Mazatlan Mexican PGA Championship on the Canadian Tour.
