Congratulations to LGA Indonesia student Bernd Wiesberger for winning the Alstom Open de France to claim his third European tour title.

Bernd's final round of 65 produced a convincing three shot victory over challenging players such as double major champion Martin Kaymer and James Morrison.

Bernd has had a great first half to the year but was unable to get the win early in the season when he was challenging through the Middle East, he has made his Masters debut where he finished t22 and now couldn't be in better form to go compete at the Open at St. Andrews in ten days time.

We look forward to see Bernd perform for the rest of the season and hopefully see some more victories.

CONGRATULATION to Bernd Wiesberger in become number 36 in The World (Golf World Ranking)

Bernd Wiesberger shot a 5-under-par 67, beating South African Ernie Els by a single stroke to win the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters 2013 on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Austrian shot a 15-under-par 273 at the US$750,000 Asian Tour event, staged at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club, to win his second title in Asia.

"I was struggling in the beginning, having trouble off the tee, and couldn't get it going," Wiesberger said. "But after I birdied the eight and nine I got the momentum going.

Wiesberger, whose coach Philippe De Busschere is based in Indonesia, said that he triumphed despite some stumbles. "I couldn't make all the putts but I was confident that my ball striking was good enough. I got an eagle on the 13th and another birdie on the 16th, which I'm very thankful for."

He dedicated his victory to his late grandfather. "It's really special today, because when I won in Korea last year my grandfather passed away the next day. It has been a year and I could feel his presence with me today. I would like to dedicate this win to him."

British Open champion Els settled for second place after carding 68, while overnight leader Daisuke Kataoka of Japan slipped to third place with a round of 70 to finish at 275 and Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand was three shots back in fourth after shooting 69.

Els, also known as the Big Easy, was phlegmatic. "I played and fought hard. I wasn't quite at my best but I had a good time. I didn't hit my iron shots close enough, especially at the start. I was one over through five holes and had to battle back all the time. Bernd was the deserving winner."

"A win would have been unbelievable, but second is not all that bad. This has given me something and it shows my game is going in the right direction. I'm starting to feel really good about my game," Els, who is ranked 24th in the world, said.

Els also praised Kataoka. "It was a great performance by Daisuke. He is a good and neat player. He hits the ball really straight with a good putter".

Kataoka, who turned pro in 2007, showed a surprising performance on the third day of the tournament when he topped the leader board with a 6-under 66 for an overall 205.

"This is a very important week for me," Katoka said. "It showed that I can play with the top players. I hit some really good shots out there and I think I can repeat my performance in other events. If I can continue to keep up this consistency, then I think my first win will come very soon," said the 24-year-old.

Bernd pocketed $135,000 for his first place finish, while Els bagged $82,500 and $47,250 went to Kataoka.

Results
273 - Bernd Wiesberger (Austria) (67-72-67-67)
274 - Ernie Els (South Afica) (68-70-68-68)
275 - Daisuke Kataoka (Japan) (70-69-66-70)

Weisberger Predicts New Dawn For Austrian Golf

Tuesday, 24 July 2012 - Bernd Wiesberger believes the future of Austrian golf is in very safe hands after the recent emergence of so many talented amateurs.

The 2012 Ballantine's Champion, who is all set to make his first professional appearance in America at next week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, believes it is only a matter of time before he is joined at the elite level by the likes of Manuel Trappel, the reigning European Amateur Champion, and also Matthias Schwab, who came agonisingly close to becoming the first Austrian to win the Amateur Championship last month.

The duo will be joined in the field at this week's Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity by five fellow Austrian amateurs – including Schwab's younger brother Johannes – and whilst Wiesberger will undoubtedly be one of the star attractions at Diamond Country Club, he expects some of the young guns to upstage their so-called superior rivals.

Wiesberger said: "Obviously Alan Dunbar played the last two holes very well to win the Amateur Championship, but we could – and probably should – have had the only two amateurs in the field at The Open last week, which for a country like Austria would've been an unbelievable achievement.

"The Austrian Federation has done a great job in building up a strong base of good, young players, and now they're able to pick the best fruits from the tree. A lot of the amateurs we have are now showing to show some great potential, so it's a very exciting time for Austrian golf. I'm sure one or two of them here this week will surprise a few people with how good they are already.

"Manuel [Trappel] may have been a bit disappointed with how he played at The Open, but it would have been a great experience for him to play with some of the world's best players on a very tough course. I'm sure he learned from it, and knows where he needs to improve if he's going to compete at the highest level. He's definitely got the talent along with Matthias and a few others, so the future looks very bright for Austrian golf."

As for his own prospects this week, Wiesberger is quietly confident of rediscovering his best form after spending some quality time on the range last week with his coach, Philipp de Busschere.

The Belgian was with Wiesberger when he claimed his debut European Tour title in Korea in April, but as de Busschere lives and works in Indonesia, their schedules only occasionally overlap.

But with de Busschere's fresh advice still ringing in his ears, Wiesberger is now hopeful of replicating – or perhaps even bettering – last year's top five finish in Atzenbrugg.

He said: "I haven't played as well as I would've liked in recent weeks, but I had a good couple of days practising with Philipp, which helped restored some of my confidence. I've still got one or two things to work on this week, but I feel much better about my game now than I did a few weeks ago. There were no major changes, just a few small things here and there. I've managed to tighten up my swing, and hopefully we'll see the benefits of that this week."

After his victory Wiesberger would have earmarked these two weeks as perhaps the most important of his entire season, with the trip to Firestone Country Club, in Akron, to come next.

The US$8.5million event will mark Wiesberger's first taste of World Golf Championship action, and the 26 year old is relishing the prospect of rubbing shoulders with the globe's pre-eminent players.

"My main goals this year were to win on The European Tour and play my first pro tournament in America," he said, "and luckily I managed to achieve both in one go with my win in Korea.

"Playing the WGC next week will definitely be one of the highlights of my career, so I'm very excited about it. This week is the perfect warm-up event, because it's quite tight off the tee and the rough is fairly thick, so my driving will have to be accurate. If I drive it well and play well here this week, it'll give me a lot of confidence to take into next week.

"I've had a look at the course online and spoken to a few of the other players, so I know what to expect. I'm sure it will still be a bit of a surprise when I get out there, but a very nice surprise."

Arnold Palmer taken to hospital with high blood pressure

Orlando, 25 March 2012 - Arnold Palmer was hospitalized Sunday afternoon because of high blood pressure from new medication, missing the trophy presentation at his tournament when Tiger Woods won for the first time in 30 months on the PGA Tour.

Palmer was being kept overnight as a precaution.

"Nobody is overly concerned about the prognosis," said Alaistair Johnston, vice chairman at IMG and Palmer's longtime business manager.

Johnston said Palmer had been advised to monitor his blood pressure throughout the day because of some issues with new medicine he was taking.

He said one last test about 15 minutes before the tournament showed an increase in blood pressure.

"It wasn't anything to do with any ailments or any discomfort he felt," Johnston said. "The blood pressure was at a level where the doctor involved suggested that he go immediately to get more intensive evaluation at the hospital."

His absence was noticeable. One of the biggest thrills at the Arnold Palmer Invitational is to have The King standing behind the 18th green, waiting to congratulate the winner. Woods won for the seventh time, this time without being able to share a handshake and a hug with Palmer.

"Get well soon, Arnie," Woods wrote at the end of a tweet. Graeme McDowell, who played in the last group with Woods and finished five shots behind, noticed immediately that Palmer in his pink shirt wasn't at the 18th at Bay Hill.

"I was surprised to see him not around, and when we just heard the news on the side that he had been taken to the hospital, of course we were very upset and certainly praying that everything is going to be OK," McDowell said. "That really puts a little bit of a damper on the spirits on 18th green when Tiger is going to pick up his trophy."

Sam Saunders, Palmer's grandson, tweeted, "For all concerned my granddad is doing fine and will be good to go tomorrow. Thank you for all of your nice comments and concern."
