TALKING GOLF WITH GARY 10-8-2012
MOORE WINS CHILDREN OPEN
Ryan Moore won the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title, birdieing the par-5 16th to take the outright lead and finishing with two pars for a 5-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over de Jonge.
LANGER COMES FROM BEHIND TO WIN SAS
Bernhard Langer came from behind to take the SAS Championship, firing a 9-under-par-63.
Langer trailed by four shots entering the final round, but his nine-birdie, no-bogey round lifted him to a two-shot win over Jay Don Blake
GRACE WINS FOURTH ON EURO TOUR
Branden Grace won his fourth European Tour event of the season Sunday by shooting a 2-under 70 to protect his lead and win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by two shots.
LINGMERTH WINS WEB.COM EVENT
Sweden's David Lingmerth won the Web.com Tour's Neediest Kids Championship on Sunday to wrap up a 2013 PGA Tour card, closing with a 4-under 66 for a one-stroke victory over Casey Wittenberg.
K.J. CHOI WINS OWN EVENT…AGAIN
K.J. Choi successfully defended his title in his own Asian Tour event Sunday, closing with a 4-under 67 for a two-stroke victory in the CJ Invitational Hosted by KJ Choi.
The eight-time PGA Tour winner finished at 15-under 269 at Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club, and again donated his $118,875 first-place check to his KJ Choi Foundation.
NEWS & NOTES
South Africa will host the second richest tournament in golf in 2013, but it won't have the World Golf Championship status initially promised by the country's national tour.
Organizers say the Tournament of Hope, with total prize money of $8.5 million, will be staged in South Africa for 10 years. The prize puts it ahead of all four majors and on a par with the money offered at the four WGC events. Only the Players Championship is richer at $9.5 million.
The new tournament is sanctioned by the International Federation of PGA Tours and South Africa's Sunshine Tour, but increases a cluttered end-of-season calendar.
Victorious Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal ruled out the possibility of staying on for the 2014 competition at Gleneagles.
The Spaniard returned to Europe , cradling the gleaming golden trophy and still reveling in Europe's stirring rally over the United States at Medinah.
Spain's King Juan Carlos and tennis star Rafael Nadal were among those who sent Olazabal messages of congratulations after the 14 1/2-13 1/2 win that kept the cup in European hands.
But after seven matches as a player - during which he teamed up so effectively with the late Seve Ballesteros - and now another as a winning captain, he has come to the end of his 25-year Ryder Cup career.
