Several familiar names worked their way up the leaderboard Saturday at the 26th Rosauers Open Invitational, and they were a bit surprised they didn’t have to work harder to get there.

Former Eastern Washington Eagle Kyle Kelly, the 2010 champ, is one of three players one shot back entering the final round today at Indian Canyon.
It’s not often a golfer can overcome a triple bogey on the back nine in the final round and still hoist a championship trophy a couple of hours later. Amateur Hank Frame did all that and more on a sweltering Sunday at The Fairways, recovering from a triple bogey on the par-5 12th to force a playoff with Michael Roters to decide the 49th annual Lilac City Invitational title. On the second extra hole, Frame drained a 9-foot par putt and then watched Roters’ 7-foot par putt slide right of the cup.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Trevor Immelman has no interest in looking at the world ranking these days. It’s not that he doesn’t have time to scroll through the pages until he finds his name at No. 269. Immelman has lost the better part of two years with a left wrist injury, and these are the consequences. He accepts that.
Stuart Appleby ended a nine-year drought at home by winning the Australian Masters on Sunday in Melbourne, rallying from a seven-shot deficit with birdies on his last two holes for a 6-under 65. Appleby was as golden as the winner’s jacket with his putter down the stretch. He knocked in a 30-foot par putt on the 16th hole to stay in the mix, took the lead with a 25-footer for birdie on the 17th and closed with a two-putt birdie to reach 10 uner and win by a stroke.

LAS VEGAS – In a stunning finish in Las Vegas, Jonathan Byrd won a three-man playoff with a hole-in-one on the fourth extra hole.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Tiger Woods says he never learned more in a year in which he never won less. Woods said Monday he is more at peace with his personal life than when he returned to golf in April, and he remains hopeful that his season will not end without a victory.
SAN MARTIN, Calif. – The familiar chants of “Rocco! Rocco!” never sounded better or louder as he approached the 18th hole. Rocco Mediate holed out for eagle for the fourth straight day, hitting a pitching wedge from 116 yards that spun back into the cup on the par-4 17th hole Sunday en route to a one-stroke victory over Bo Van Pelt and rookie Alex Prugh of Spokane in the Frys.com Open.
