Asian Tour/ Korean Tour

Another week down and another excellent result for rising star Nick Voke, this time at the at the Donghae Cup in Korea. Voke continued his great run of form with 4 sub 70 scores, including a final day 65 to take outright 3rd place. This latest result has lifted Voke to number 441 in the Official World Rankings, pretty impressive having started the year at number 1928!!

Harry Na and Ben Campbell were both well off the pace, missing the cut.

European Tour Q School

James Anstiss has made it through his first stage at the Fleesensee Golf & Country Club, Germany. Needing to finish in the top 15 to progress to stage 2, Anstiss looks to have been in control throughout the 4 rounds, comfortably inside the magic number all week, closing out with a 10 under par total and a tie for 5th place.

We had a 50% success rate at The Players Club in Bristol. On a course which yielded less than twenty sub 70 scores, from a total of 330 rounds played, Mat Perry posted a final round 69 to sneak inside the qualification mark and book his ticket to stage 2. Hayden Beard was consistent on the difficult course, but just wasn’t able to put together the one low round he needed, and finished up tied 26th, missing the number by 2 shots.

Anstiss and Perry now move on to one of 4 different venues used for stage 2, all in Spain, the first week of November.

Josh Geary was the best of the Kiwis at the KLM Open in Spijk. Geary’s T28th place finish picked up some handy points, but he still has plenty of work to do to hold onto playing rights for next season.

Ryan Fox was the other Kiwi in the field, but with 70 72, his week’s work was over on Friday.

AbemaTV Tour

Harry Bateman was solid at the Heiwa PGM Challenge II in Kyoto, posting scores of 68 71 70, for a 1 under par total that was good enough for a share of 48th on a tighly packed leaderboard. There are 4 events remaining on the schedule for Bateman to put together some low numbers and push for a win.


It was a bit of a slow start for Lydia Ko at the final womens Major Championship of the year, but a pair of 67’s over the weekend saw Ko finish in familiar position in the top 10. Ko’s consistency seems to be back, surely a win can’t be too far away.

Symetra Tour

Liv Cheng has finished strongly on a difficult Mystic Creek Golf Course, posting a final round even par 72 to move into a share of 32nd place at the Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout.
