TOKYO — Japanese 15-year-old Minami Katsu became the youngest winner in the history of the Japan LPGA tour by shooting a 4-under 68 on Sunday to take out the Vantelin Ladies Open.

The amateur had five birdies against a lone bogey at Kumamoto Airport Country Club to finish at 11-under 205, one stroke ahead of South Korean Lee Bo-mee.

"I never thought I would be able to win," Katsu said. "I want to thank the fans who supported me and of course my parents."

Gene Fieger won the Senior PGA Professional National Championship on Friday in Port St. Lucie (shown here at the 2006 PGA Championship).

With 35 spots at stake for next month's Senior PGA Championship, Gene Fieger shot 69 Friday to close out a six-shot win in the 25th Southworth Senior PGA Professional National Championship in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

“I’ve always said it would be nice to come up the 18th hole with a six- or seven-shot lead,” said Fieger, director of golf at Hideout GC in Naples, Fla. “Then when you have one, you still feel tentative. I hit it over the green at 18, not wanting to go into the water." He could easily afford bogey, though.

Victor Dubuisson of France is competing to make his first Ryder Cup appearance for the European team.

With the September Ryder Cup clearly at the forefront of the European agenda, three likely team members with no experience in the matches gladly accepted the opportunity to play in next week’s EurAsia Cup in Malaysia.

Victor Dubuisson and Wales’ Jamie Donaldson are 1-2 on the European Points List, while Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher would be the last automatic qualifier off the World Points List if the Ryder Cup were held next week. None of them has played in the Ryder Cup, so the Europe-Asia team match will offer a taste of the format.

Another likely Ryder Cupper, Graeme ...

Cheyenne Woods’ victory at the Ladies European Tour's Volvik RACV Ladies Masters quickly garnered attention (Woods is shown here during 2012 LPGA Q-School).

Cheyenne Woods never doubted she could win. But with the expected comparisons to Uncle Tiger and the constant questions, it got to a point where she felt like she was making appearances rather than competing. She lost focus.

“People weren’t as concerned about my actual results as they were about my family,” Woods said.

Now it’s a lot of both.

Woods, fresh off her first professional victory on a major tour in Australia, headlines the Symetra Tour’s season-opening event this week in Mesa, Ariz. Woods, a 23-year-old native of Phoenix, lives in a condo 35 minutes away ...

Cheyenne Woods' first professional victory Sunday at the Australian Ladies Masters not only moved her to the top of the Ladies European Tour's Order of Merit, it also sparked a big climb in the Rolex Rankings.

Woods, 23, improved 209 spots to 154th in the world, the highest ranking of her career. Naturally, she still has a ways to go to equal her uncle, Tiger Woods, the World No. 1 men's player.

With only one ranked event this past week, the top 16 remained the same as Inbee Park still holds the top spot at 9.93, 0 ...

Karen Paolozzi wins PGA Women’s Stroke Play

Bill Zimmerman

Karen Paolozzi won the PGA Women’s Stroke Play Championship by three strokes with a final-round 73 that passed Ashley Grier.

Paolozzi, of Roswell, Ga., had been runner-up in her first trip to the PGA Women's Stroke Play last year – six shots back of Grier, of Chevy Chase, Md.

“I was just trying not to make any big mistakes today,” Paolozzi told the PGA. “The birdie at the sixth hole was a surprise. I chipped in from in front of the green, about 20 yards, and I was just trying to get the ball over the water on my ...

Reigning Masters champion Adam Scott's home in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is up for sale at a price of about $6.25 million, according to Abu Dhabi Week – and beyond the golf-course and coastal views from its pool, there's one heck of an extra perk involved.

Scott will play a round of golf with the buyer, Property Observer reported – perhaps that will add some intrigue to the mansion, which the website says Scott built in 2008 at close to the same price with the intention it could serve as a base for European Tour play but has ...

Mi Hyang Lee receives a congratulatory hug from Lydia Ko after the South Korean won the 2014 New Zealand Open.
