Goosen returns to world top 25

Retief Goosen won the Transitions Championship in Tampa to pick up his seventh PGA Tour success which include two US Opens. Goosen won by a stroke from Americans Charles Howell-III and Brett Quigley, a closing one-under-par 70 giving him the $972,000 first prize over the demanding Copperhead course at the Innisbrook Resort where he also captured the 2003 Chrysler Championship. The former world number three is now back to world number 22 a jump of 17 positions.

Argentina's Estanislao Goya survived a late scare and an amazing birdie burst by Scot Callum Macaulay to win a European Tour title at just the sixth attempt. The 20 year old from Cordoba, a graduate from last season's European Challenge Tour, won the Madeira Islands Open BPI - Portugal at Porto Santo Golfe by one with a closing 73 and six under par total of 278. The win takes him to into the world top 100, in 99th position, up 96 spots.

This week's other winners were Chapchai Nirat at the SAIL Open on the Asian Tour, where he established a new Asian Tour scoring record with his 32 under par 256 for an emphatic 11 shot victory which moves him up to world no. 144, and Alan Wagner at the Club Colombia Masters on the Challenge Tour.
