Perez got off to a hot start, making three birdies over the first four holes to extend his lead. From there he played level golf the rest of the tournament, shooting a 3-under 69 to finish at 24-under par for the event. Keegan Bradley was the only player within seven strokes of Perez, as he was at 20-under. This was the first victory for the 41-year-old since he won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba last November. It was also Perez's third career victory on the PGA Tour.

Hatton takes the Italian Open

Entering the last round at the Italian Open, Matt Wallace held a tenuous two-shot lead, sitting at 17-under par. Two shots behind him were last week's winner on the European Tour, Tyrell Hatton, as well as Francesco Molinari. There were also two golfers at 14-under par and three at 13-under par.

Wallace would shot a 2-under 69 to finish at 19-under par in third place.

However, Kiradech Aphibarnrat would shot a 6-under 65 and Ross Fisher would shot an 8-under 63 to both get into the clubhouse at 20-under par.

Hatton went into the 18th hole tied with both men but sunk a 15-foot birdie putt to win the tournament. This victory gave the 26-year-old his third victory on the European Tour and also gives him wins in back-to-back weeks.

Ko wins the KEB-Hana Bank Championship

Jin Young Ko held a two-shot lead going into Sunday at the KEB-Hana Bank Championship, sitting at 15-under par. Sung Hyun Park was in second place at 13-under, with Lizette Salas and In Gee Chun tied for third place at 12-under.

Ko started off badly in the final round, giving up her led by bogeying two of the first three holes. She then flipped a switch in her playing, making six birdies over the final 15 holes to shot a 4-under par 68 and finished at 19-under par, two shots ahead of Park. This gave the 22-year-old her first LPGA Tour victory, which was even an even sweeter moment as she won in her home country.
