Seven within two shots of co-leaders at Rosauers Open

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. Two-time champion Corey Prugh and Shane Prante share the lead after 36 holes at 10-under 132.

Frame wins Lilac City Invitational golf tournament

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.

Former Masters champ ranked 269

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.

Golf briefs: Appleby rallies Down Under

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.

Winless streak cost Woods aura of invincibility

MELBOURNE, Australia – The woman keeping score for Tiger Woods in the final round of the Australia Masters did well to contain her emotions.
