Arnold Palmer design DLF Golf & Country Club. Rounds of 72, 71, 73, 73, for a one over par total, scored Campbell a T32nd place at the Indian Open.

PGA Tour China Series

A great start and a great finish earned a top 10 for Luke Kwon at the Chongqing Championship with a 14 under par total. On a rare par 73 layout, Kwon bookended 72’s with 67’s to get up for a share of 7th place on Sunday afternoon. Ryan Chisnall posted a 67 of his own in round 2 but was floating around par the rest of the week, T38th.

The Alps Tour Winter Series is a condensed schedule with 3 events played in Cairo in a 2 week period. Shaun Jones has finished in 36th in the first of 3, the Dreamland Pyramids Open with 73, 71, 74, 2 over par total.

Next up for Jones was the New Giza Open. A case of ‘two out of three ain’t bad’… 71, 68 had Jones within reach of the leaders but a final round 75 made a move in the wrong direction on the leaderboard into a share of 18th.

Nick Voke (69, 69, 74, 74), Steven Alker (69, 68, 73, 73) and Tim Wilkinson (66, 74, 74, 74) all started the week well but couldn’t manage to keep the pace over the weekend at the Savannah Golf Championship. Alker finishing 42nd, Voke 65th and Wilkinson 74th.
