Quiros enters world top 100

Spain’s Alvaro Quiros won the Portugal Masters at the Oceânico Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura by three strokes from 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie. The 25 year old from Cadiz pocketed the €500,000 winner’s cheque - the largest of his career - after a final round 68 for a 19 under par total. This second win of his career sees Quiros jump 202 places to 94th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Marc Turnesa shot a four-under-par 68 to win the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the PGA Tour. Turnesa finished at 25-under 263 to record the first PGA Tour victory of his career from Matt Kuchar who was a stroke back at 24 under par after a closing 67. The win takes Turnesa to world number 138, an improvement of 152 positions.

Japan's number one player Shingo Katayama won the Japan Open Golf Championship by a comfortable margin of four strokes finishing as the only player under par with his 283 (1-under-par) total. The win takes Katayama back into the world top 50 as he climbs 18 places to world number 43.

Other winners this week were Arjun Atwal at the Chattanooga Classic on the Nationwide Tour (rising to 175th on the Ranking), Noh Seung-yul at the Midea China Classic on the Asian Tour, who enters the world top 200 at number 193, and Taco Remkes, who picked up his third win of the season, at the Margara Diehl-Ako Platinum Open on the European Challenge Tour.
