Round-Up 19-04-21

It was great to get back in the winners enclosure at the weekend, after +4500 John Catlin won the Austrian Open yesterday.

And the American's win (his third in quick succession on the European Tour) was certainly a nice way to bounce back to winning form after a relatively quiet spell - by the Golf Insider's own high standards!

And I think, in all honesty, we left a little profit behind as well in both this event, and in the RBC Heritage in the States.

Matthias Schwab finished 7th at Atzenburgg, to bag a Top 10 finish, and Joost Luiten was 12th - just a single shot off the money.

Meanwhile, on the PGA Tour in the US, Matt Wallace was sharing 4th place going into yesterday's final round at Hilton Head. And whilst I'm not saying he would have chased down the runaway winner, the Englishman's final round 73 definitely cost us a nice return. Likewise, Charley Hoffman's error-strewn 71.

Both players finished tied 18th, when they could easily have made the Top 10.

Anyway, as backers we should always concentrate on what actually happens, and not what could of happened...

So let's enjoy the win of Catlin, and take it as a sign that we'll be backing more winners in the near future!!

Rounding up the action in Austria where, let's not forget, we've now back two outright winners in the space of 9 months (after Marc Warren won the delayed 2020 edition of this tournament)... our man played a very good weekend to work his way through a packed leaderboard and force a play-off with Max Kieffer.

It went to the 5th extra hole(!), before Catlin's bogey proved enough to land the title.

Here's the standings at the Diamond CC...

AUSTRIAN OPEN - Final results

-14 John Catlin* (+4500)
-14 Maximilian Kieffer (+10000)
-11 Martin Kaymer (+2000)
 -8 Marcus Armitage (+15000)
 -8 Will Besseling (+20000)
 -8 Garrick Higgo (+4000)

Meanwhile, over on the PGA Tour it was the veteran Stewart Cink who led from wire-to-wire to win the RBC Heritage.

Cink started like a house on fire, and his 63-63 helped to open up a five shot lead going into Sunday's final round, and even a modest 70 in Round 4 saw him home by four shots. This was Cink's 8th PGA Tour title, and after no wins since 2009... the 47-year-old has now won twice this season!

The leaderboard in South Carolina...

RBC HERITAGE - Final results

-19 Stewart Cink (+12500)
-15 Harold Varner (+15000)
-15 Emiliano Grillo (+8000)
-13 Maverick McNealy (+25000)
-13 Corey Conners (+3500)
-13 Matt Fitzpatrick (+2200)

We're straight back into action this week with the GRAN CANARIA LOPESAN OPEN on the European Tour.

This is a new event on the main tour and comes from the Meloneras Golf Club, in Gran Canaria where Antoine Rozner is the early market leader.

Then on the PGA Tour there's the ZURICH CLASSIC from New Orleans. This is a two-man pairs event, and is held at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, LA.

Here Ryan Palmer and Jon Rahm are the defending champions.

I'll be speaking to the Insider shortly to get his early thoughts on the week's action, and I'll update you next at the usual time on Tuesday.
