ILONEN'S VICTORY OVER NUMBER 1 SEED STENSON TAKES HIM TO WORLD NO.37
Mikko Ilonen became the first Finnish player to win the Volvo World Match Play Championship after a hard-fought victory over Number One seed Henrik Stenson at London Golf Club. Ben Martin only beat one player at last week’s Frys.com Open. He got the best of them all at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Overnight leader Yuta Ikeda narrowly escaped Satoshi Kodaira to win the Japan Open title and Australian Scott Hend joined the pantheons of greats at the Hong Kong Open when he claimed the prestigious title following a play-off victory over a brave Angelo Que of the Philippines on Sunday.
