Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre birdied four of his last six holes to claim his first European Tour title in the Cyprus Showdown. MacIntyre missed a hole-in-one by inches on the 17th, settling for birdie and the outright lead before Japan’s Masahiro Kawamura birdied the 18th to move into a tie for top spot. MacIntyre calmly two-putted from 20 feet away to secure the victory. In a first-of-its-kind format on the European Tour, the field was cut to 32 and then 19 players after rounds two and three, with the scores reset to par for the final two days. … Aaron Cockerill’s second round 73 snapped a streak of six consecutive sub-par rounds

: The Masters  (Nov. 12)


The final round of the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship will conclude on Monday after Kevin Sutherland and Paul Broadhurst traded pars through six playoff holes in near darkness. Broadhurst erased a six-shot deficit with a bogey-free final round of 63 while Sutherland squandered a five-shot lead only to close with a birdie on the final hole to force a playoff. The tournament is the final official event of the year, but not the season. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent loss of tournaments, the 2020 and 2021 seasons will be combined and the Charles Schwab Cup winner will be determined next year. …Stephen Ames was just three shots off the lead after the first round. He posted his best result of the season since a tie for 9th back in February …Mike Weir was seven shots off the lead after two rounds.

T28 Stephen Ames 67-72-71 -3
T36 Mike Weir 67-69-75 -2
