Golf roundup: Garnett emerges to win Utah championship

The 23-year-old from South Korea shot her second straight 5-under 67 and won a day-long battle with Shanshan Feng and teenage amateur Hye-Jin Choi at Trump National Golf Club.

"I have been fighting for this win for many years", he said. I think more than anything else - you can beat yourself up before you get on the golf course, which is a problem.

Cabrera Bello hit his own approach to within 10 feet, and while he missed his eagle attempt by a few inches, his tap in birdie was enough as Shinkwin narrowly failed to get up and down.

The victory was Cabrera-Bello's first in five years - his third on the European Tour - and brought a $1.1 million prize. I had no shot, really. He was unable to get up-and-down and the resulting bogey saw him finish 72 holes tied with Cabrera-Bello. The WD in Malaysia remains unexplained, but the "retirement" from last month's BMW International in Germany was caused by "heat exhaustion". "It wasn't there for me", Shinkwin said.

Unlike his two rivals, Poulter has already qualified for next week's Open at Royal Birkdale - a major in which the Englishman finished second at the same venue in 2008 - as has compatriot Andy Sullivan, who is the trio's closest challenger, two strokes back in outright fourth.

"I found myself a little bit mentally worn out on the back nine".

France's Matthieu Pavon also secured a major debut at Birkdale with a closing 66 to finish third on 10 under, with Australia's Andrew Dodt claiming the last place ahead of England's Anthony Wall by virtue of his higher world ranking.

"So, really, really happy how I played today".

Joint overnight leader, Padraig Harrington buckled under a 79 to drop to a share of 23rd place at two under.

Poulter was seeking a 14th worldwide win - and first since November 2012 - but was always playing catch-up after three-putting Nos.

Fox placed 59th in his first attempt at the Open in 2015 and will join by fellow New Zealander Michael Hendry in the Royal Birkdale field on Thursday.

"When we got to the 10th, probably through the 14th, 15th, it started raining and it just got so hard".

Couples had the most memorable one, completing his at the island 17th at TPC Sawgrass' Stadium Course during the 1999 Players Championship. As it was, he finished in a share of 19th place at Dundonald, on a four-round total of five-under-par. There's a lot at stake tomorrow and obviously I'm going to do my best. I knew it was only going to go one way, up the leaderboard.
