Nick Watney won his first PGA Tour event by a comfortable three strokes. Daniel Chopra made a strong comeback this time around in the fourth round and finished tied for 15th place. Another decent finish for him, sure to push him up in the Fed Ex cup points race.

Raphael JACQUELIN wins in Asia and Danny slips in the Zurich classic

Raphael JACQUELIN won the BMW Asian open by 2 strokes. It was a disappointing run for Asian golfers with only Lee Sung in the top 10. The only Indian to make the cut Gaurav Ghei played his worst round of the week to finish tied 58th. :-(

It seems that I jinxed Danny and he ended up playing a terrible third round moving out of the top 10 and ending up t36 after the third rounds play!

Go Danny boy!

Daniel Chopra has had a brilliant season so far. After being on the fringes for the last few years on the PGA TOUR, it seems Danny will hold on to his permanent playing card on the PGA Tour with ease and although he is presently ranked 58 in the fedex cup ranking points this season it's been a considerable improvement for him.
Infact his ranking would be much better if he just managed to get the fourth round troubles of his back..His final round scoring average is 71.5 far worse than his average for the other three rounds which stands at 70.2 . If he starts to perform more consistently in the fourth round he will be visible far more often on the final tournament leaderboarD!

The BMW Asian Open and the Zurich Classic

This week we have action from Shanghai with the BMW Asian Open and the Zurich Classic on the PGA Tour.

It's been a disappointing run for the Indians in Shanghai in the BMW Asian Open which is a co sanctioned event with the European Tour. Only Gaurav Ghei has made the cut(he has been stringing together a few decent finishes this season!)... Shiv Kapur unfortunately failed to make the cut and so did a few others. S.S.P. continues to struggle in the co-sanctioned events.

In the Zurich Classic Arjun Atwal plays his first event on the PGA Tour after the car accident incident! Although he will miss out on the cut look out for Daniel Chopra.Another fabulous second round for him pushes him into the top 10 after the second rounds play.

Jeev Milkha Singh has taken a break this week.
