Highlight Story

SSP Chowrasia gained five spots on Sunday but the late revival at Wentworth Club wasn't enough to lift his fortunes in the BMW PGA Championship. After Saturday's horrific round of five-over, the Indian displayed better form and finished even-par. Overnight T39, Chowrasia finally settled for a joint 34th with a total of three-over 287.
At the top of the leaderboard, England's Simon Khan, won with a slender one-shot margin over Sweden's Fredrik Andersson.

No World Match Play Championship

The World Match Play Championship, held every year bar one since its inception in 1964, will not be staged this season. "There will not be a World Match Play in 2010," European Tour chief executive George O'Grady told a news conference during the final round of the PGA Championship.

"Plans are well advanced to bring it back on the schedule in 2011 but the dates are impossible to work out (this year) to the satisfaction of the promoter." Wentworth hosted every World Match Play from 1964, the year Arnold Palmer beat Neil Coles 2 & 1 in the final, until 2007.

Atwal zooms to T7

Irving, Texas: Arjun Atwal turned his best round of the year with a flawless six-under 64 that rocketed him from tied 59th to seventh after third round in the Byron Nelson Championship.
Jeev Milkha Singh, trying to make a comeback after injury, shot two-under 68 that took him from overnight tied 44th to tied 23rd.

At six-under 204, he is six shots behind leader Jason Day.
