In-form Dyson breaks into top 50

Simon Dyson shot a superb final round of 66 over the Old Course and secured victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews. The 31 year old's win was his second on The European Tour this year as the event went into a fifth day because of Saturday's high winds. Dyson jumps into the world top 50 with a 48 spot jump to world number 44 and up to 8th in the European Tour Race to Dubai.

Matt Kuchar parred the sixth extra hole to beat Vaughn Taylor in a play-off and win the Turning Stone Resort Championship in New York. The two Americans had to return to the course on Monday morning after bad light ended their play-off after two extra holes on Sunday evening. The win takes Kuchar to world number 56, up 42 places while Taylor is the new world number 206, up exactly 100 positions.

Ryo Ishikawa birdied his last two holes to snatch victory at the Tokai Classic with a one-stroke victory over Takeshi Kajikawa on Sunday. The 18-year-old carded a three-under-par 69 for a four-day total of 14-under 274 which secured his fourth Japan Tour title of the year which takes him to world number 43, up 7 places.

This week's other winners were Jerod Turner at the Soboba Classic on the Nationwide Tour, Lin Wen-Tang at the Mercuries Taiwan Masters on the Asian Tour, Jose-Filipe Lima at the ECCO Tour Championship on the Challenge Tour and James Hahn at the Riviera Nayarit Classic on the Canadian Tour.
