Erik van Rooyen emerged victorious at the World Wide Technology Championship in Mexico, marking his second PGA Tour win in a dramatic and emotional final round.

The South African golfer, who had been facing an ordinary season, delivered an inspiring performance, especially on the back nine.

He nearly made a hole-in-one on the 11th and continued his strong play with birdies on the 12th, 14th, 16th, and 17th holes.

The climax came at the 18th hole, where van Rooyen’s eagle putt secured his win by two strokes.

The victory was particularly poignant as van Rooyen dedicated every shot to his friend, Jon Trasamar, who is battling terminal cancer making his win not just a professional triumph but a deeply personal one.

This week the tour heads to Bermuda for the Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

It’s going to be a special week for the Bryan Bros, with both brothers competing.

George tees it up in his first PGA Tour event whilst on the other hand, Wesley is fighting for his playing rights for next season.


Mone Inami clinched her first LPGA Tour victory at the Toto Japan Classic, triumphing on home soil with a final score of 22-under-par.

This win adds to her impressive record on the JLPGA Tour, where she has already secured 13 victories.

Inami’s performance was particularly noteworthy given the tough conditions on the final day at the Taiheiyo Club’s Minori Course.

Despite this, she managed a 3-under 69 in the final round, edging out South Korea’s Seon Woo Bae and Japan’s Shiho Kuwaki by one stroke.

Gemma Dryburgh, the defending champion, finished tied for sixth, three shots behind Inami.
