Claim that Wozniacki told McIlroy that UNICEF donation was "stupid"
Did Caroline Wozniacki play a role in one of the key events that led to the legal bust up between Rory McIlroy and Horizon Sports Management? On the face of what was said in the High Court in Dublin on Friday, the world No 1’s former fiancée was not short of an opinion on what is one of the major events in the proceedings — a supposedly face-saving donation made to UNICEF by Horizon on McIlroy's behalf but against McIlroy’s wishes.
No cards for Browne or Moriarty
Ireland’s Colm Moriarty and Stephen Browne came up short as 30 players grabbed their cards in a heart-stopping finale to the European Tour Qualifying School Finals at San Roque.
Moriarty closed with a one under par 71 on a wind-lashed final day but a crucial double bogey on his 13th hole left him three shots outside the qualifying mark on level par.
We'll be back say Irish pair
Irish duo Colm Moriarty and Stephen Browne have vowed to bounce back after their tour dreams were smashed at the Qualifying School Finals in Spain.
Moriarty hit one under par 71 but missed his card by three shots after a crucial double bogey on his 13th at brutal San Roque.
And it was a similar story for Browne, who was just three shots outside the magical top 30 with seven to play when he took a sickening double bogey six at his 12th in a 75.
Browne and Moriarty come up short
Lo and the west wind did blow and there was great rejoicing and great gnashing of teeth at the final judgement that is the sixth and final round of the European Tour Qualifying School finals at The San Roque Club.
Grinning from ear to ear were winner Martin Wiegele of Austria, who finished two strokes clear of England’s Lee Slattery and Spain’s Pedro Linhart on 11-under par, and former Irish Open champion Patrik Sjoland, who holed a 137-yard seven-iron for an eagle three at his 16th hole for a best of the day 68 that left him bang on the three-under par cut off mark.
It's Patrik's day
It was Patrik’s Day at San Roque - but not for Ireland’s Colm Moriarty and Stephen Browne.
As 2000 Irish Open winner Patrik Sjoland grabbed a European Tour lifeline by holing a seven-iron for an eagle at his 16th hole, Moriarty and Browne saw their hopes blown away on a 25 mph southwest wind on San Roque’s New Course.
