Karlsson off to Valhalla as world no. 17

Robert Karlsson claimed his first European Tour victory for two years in the Mercedes-Benz Championship at Gut Larchenhof in Cologne, Germany with a closing 71 for a total of 13 under par and two shot victory over Italy's Francesco Molinari. The six foot five inch Swede had been six clear at one stage but Molinari birdied four holes in a row from the 12th. Karlsson will head to Valhalla for his second Ryder Cup as World Number 17, a rise of 5 places.

With a closing round of 64 Chris Tidland won the Albertsons Boise Open on the Nationwide Tour by four shots over Scott Piercy. Tidland jumps into the World Top 300 with a 211 spot improvement to 298th.

A wire-to-wire victory at the inaugural Qingdao Golf Open, the first of his European Challenge Tour career, provided Northern Ireland’s Gareth Maybin with the perfect present on his 28th birthday. The win takes him to World Number 178, a jump of 88 positions.
