Paul Casey climbs to world no. 21 with Abu Dhabi win

Paul Casey secured a second victory in three years at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship from Louis Oosthuizen and Martin Kaymer. South African Oosthuizen had earlier shot a brilliant 64 to post a 20-under-par target which was matched by Kaymer with a superb eagle on the last. Casey was able to two putt from 12 feet at the 72nd hole for his tournament record 21-under-par total and the single stroke win which moves him up 21 places to world number 21.

Zach Johnson closed with a five-under-par round of 65 for a 15-under-par total of 265 to win the Sony Open in Hawaii at Waialae Country Club by two strokes from David Toms and Adam Scott. Charles Howell III finished fourth at 12-under 268. Johnson entered the final round with a one-shot lead but was in a three-way tie at the turn. He started the back nine with consecutive birdies and added two more at number 14 and 18 to wrap up his fifth PGA Tour victory. Johnson climbs 17 places in the Official World Golf Ranking to 27th.

Retief Goosen fired a brilliant final round of 65 to win the Africa Open at East London Golf Club on the Sunshine Tour. Goosen finished one shot clear of Darren Clarke, Michael Hoey, Branden Grace and Darren Fichardt and climbs 9 places to world number 40.
