SECTION 3 BUSINESS NEWS ROUND UP

June 26, 2017: Golf Australia Limited: Macpherson's triumph in China

Australian Bryden Macpherson has won a tournament on the China Tour, his third victory in that country over the past three years.

Melburnian Macpherson, 26, carded a final-round 64 to reach a playoff at the Fragrant Hills International, then parred the 17th hole to beat South Korean player Rak Hyun Cho.

Macpherson won twice in China in 2015 when the tour was known as the PGA Tour China. It is now being run by the China Golf Association.

"I didn't think I would have any chance of catching any of the leaders at the start of the day and I guess I was lucky enough to be at the right position at the right time," Macpherson told the China Tour website. "I haven't been making many putts during the week but I managed to hole many putts today and played really solid.

"I told myself to stay patient as you never know what can happen. And then, here we are. I was trying not to think too much of the scores when I played but I thought if I could get to eight or nine-under-par, I may have a chance."

June 26, 2017: Golf Australia Limited: Another top-10 for Minjee, Ryu to No. 1

Australia's Minjee Lee has warmed up for next week's major championship finishing tied-sixth in the Arkansas Championship on the LPGA Tour.

So Yeon Ryu of South Korea won the tournament by two shots to overtake Ariya Jutanugarn and claim the world No. 1 ranking for the first time.

Lee has six top-10 finishes this season already and more than $US400,000 prizemoney.

She had her best major finish, tied-third at the ANA Inspiration earlier this year. This week is the LPGA Championship in Olympia Fields, the season's second major.

Ryu, who is coached by Australian Cameron McCormick in Dallas, leaps from from No. 3 to No. 1 on the rankings with her second win of the year.

"First of all, I really want to appreciate everyone who has been supportive of me, to make me the No. 1 player in the world," she said. ":That's finally made my dream. This is going to my first week as the No. 1 player in the world. I know it's going to be a lot of pressure and I know I can handle a lot of different things."

Queenslander Katherine Kirk (10-under) also tied for 10th.

June 26, 2017: Golf Australia Limited: Spieth's super shot wins

Jordan Spieth holed a bunker shot in spectacular fashion to win a playoff at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut today.

The reigning Emirates Australian Open champion and world No. 6 won his first tournament since February with one, stunning shot from 18 metres, launching into a body-bumping celebration with caddie Michael Greller.

Spieth's birdie pipped out countryman Daniel Berger in the playoff after Berger had posted 12-under, leaving Spieth to par the 72nd hole to force a playoff. Even then, Spieth had to get up-and-down from the front-right trap at the 18th hole to force a playoff.

Spieth has won two Australian Opens including a playoff at Royal Sydney last year, and has said he intends returning to defend his title at The Australian Golf Club in November, pending a final announcement.

"Obviously, that was one for the ages," he said of the winning shot. "I don't know if I'll ever have a moment like that again."

Berger was philosophical. "Jordan does Jordan things," he said.

Of the Aussies in the field, Marc Leishman finished tied-17th, carding four consecutive rounds in the 60s and continuing his sound 2016-17 season. Leishman remains in the top 15 on the Fedex Cup points list.

Former world No. 1 Jason Day missed his second consecutive cut, meaning he will likely go into the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale next month in problematic form.

June 25, 2017: Golf Australia Limited: Heartbreak for Perry in The Amateur final

England's Harry Ellis battled back from four holes down with five to play to win the 36-hole final of The 122nd Amateur Championship at Royal St George's today. The 21-year-old from Meon Valley followed in the footsteps of his former Hampshire teammate, 2016 Amateur champion Scott Gregory, to lift the famous trophy after defeating Australia's Dylan Perry in a dramatic match that went to the 38th hole. Ellis, who became the youngest player to win the English Amateur Championship aged just 16 in 2012, secured a place in The 146th Open at Royal Birkdale, next year's US Open at Shinnecock Hills and, by tradition, an invitation to the Masters Tournament in 2018. The match was extremely close for most of the day and the first 18 holes were nip and tuck with neither player able to build more than a one hole lead. The match was all square going into the afternoon and although Ellis won the 20th hole with a birdie three it was the Australian who seized the initiative. Perry, who recently won the Riversdale Cup in his homeland, won four consecutive holes from the 22nd to go 3-up, before winning the 27th with a par to give him a commanding four hole lead with nine to play. Perry and Ellis continued to trade holes but the Australian maintained his four hole lead as the pair approached the 32nd hole. With only five holes to play Ellis' second shot came within inches of going out of bounds. Perry, however, found trouble in a bunker and Ellis seized his opportunity to hole a putt for par and win the hole. That gave Ellis a lift and, after halving the next, he kept his nerve steady to win the next two holes with pars. On the 36th green, Perry missed a ten foot par putt to claim victory and the match went to extra holes. Stepping up to the 1st tee at Royal St George's for the third time today both players played cautiously and halved the hole in par but the match was brought to a dramatic conclusion on the next. At the par-4 38th hole, Ellis was through the green in two and chipped to four feet while Perry, after hitting his second shot into a deep swail from which he struggled to escape, was on the green in four. When he missed his 8ft putt for bogey, Ellis had two putts for the championship but required only one to seal a memorable comeback victory.

June 24, 2017: Golf Australia Limited: History awaits the Hunter's Perry

The Amateur final - Not bad for a boy from Aberdeen. Dylan Perry is 36 holes away from fulfilling a lifelong dream. The 22-year-old from the New South Wales Hunter Valley has powered his way into the final of the 2017 Amateur Championship at Royal St George's after two thrilling wins overnight. Perry played steadily all day, defeating Noway's Jarle Kaldestad Volden one-up in a quarterfinal battle for the ages, the lead to either player was never more than one hole. He was never headed in the afternoon semi-final, taking the lead on the fourth hole before eliminating Argentina's Alejandro Tosti 3&2.
