Despite a double bogey at his 72nd hole, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño emerged with a one-stroke victory at the BMW Masters.

The Spaniard started the final round at Lake Malaren Golf Club in Shanghai, China one stroke back of overnight co-leaders Luke Guthrie and fellow countryman Rafael Cabrera-Bello, both of whom dropped a shot on the par-4 first hole. Cutting right to the chase, GFC would play his first 17 holes in bogey-free 6-under with six birdies before the gaffe at 18 where he landed in two bunkers before closing out the title with a kick-in for a 6 and 4-under 68 to post 11-under 277. Guthrie played out his string bogey-free, but found only two birdies to finish in solo fourth at 279. RCB blew up for a 73 to total 281 and place T8. Francesco Molinari closed with a 64 (1 eagle, 8 birdies, 2 bogeys) to share runner-up honors with Thongchai Jaidee (6-under 66; 7 birdies, 1 bogey) at 10-under 278. Fernandez-Castaño's seventh career European Tour victory exempts him into this week's WGC-HSBC Champions.

John Hahn authored a 12-under-par 28-30=58 on Tuesday in his fourth round of qualifying school on the European Tour.

Yes, he completed all 18 holes on the Tour Course at PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona, Spain. Hahn started on the 10th hole and promptly birdied his first five. He added birdies at 17, 18, 1, 2, 5, 7 and 9 for a total of 12 on the round. Lift, clean and place is in play throughout the six-round ordeal, so it won't be an official sub-60 in the European Tour annals. "You don’t go out in the morning thinking 58 is going to happen, but obviously you are excited when it does," he said. "Preferred lies are huge, without a doubt, as it saves you from driving in a divot, up by the green you can move it the length of a scorecard, so no – listen – if you play with the ball in the hand, it is a different thing." More importantly, at 8-under 276, he's T12 with 36 holes to play. Top 25 and ties will earn a card for 2015. "It was a fun day, a good day, but it is a long week and it has just got me back into contention, and we’ve got two more days."

In an update on Dustin Johnson at GolfDigest.com, Tim Rosaforte wrote that the eight-time PGA TOUR winner has circled the Farmers Insurance Open on Feb. 5-8 to return to competition.

DJ has been out since missing the cut at the RBC Canadian Open in late July. If he, indeed, pegs it at Torrey Pines, a full six months will have elapsed in between starts, so draw your own conclusion as it relates to the Golf.com article on Aug. 1 about him being suspended for that exact length of time; you probably already have. But Johnson is also going to need to work around the birth of his first child. "He has some thoughts but nothing definitive," said David Winkle, DJ's manager. "It's all baby dependent. He's no different than anybody else with a child on the way." Assuming Johnson is back in early February, he'll have no trouble eclipsing 15 starts to fulfill the membership minimum. And while rust may be an issue early, the rest, voluntary or not, will have been invaluable.

Spencer Levin concluced the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to post 3-under 281 and settle in a six-way tie for 56th place, just enough to earn the necessary FedExCup points to fulfill the terms of his Major Medical Extension.

Levin collected 12.50 FedExCup points. He entered the week with six starts remaining on the MME, but needing just 11.004 to get the job done. That required no worse than a solo 60th-place finish. He rose 13 places on the leaderboard to achieve his objective on the number today at El Camaleón Golf Club. So, the 30-year-old will now play out of the MME category for the remainder of the season. He'll enter the holiday break slotted 61st in the FedExCup standings.

Scott Piercy closed the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a field-tying-low, 6-under-par 35-30=65 to post 10-under 274, good for a share of 16th place worth $85,572.29.

Piercy was even through 12 holes at El Camaleón today. He then ripped off four birdies and an eagle coming home (on holes 4-9). Overall, he rose 28 spots on the leaderboard to easily eclipse the minimum required to fulfill the terms of his Major Medical Extension, doing so by $56,498. He still had nine starts remaining on it. As a result of this goal achieved, he will play out of the MME category for the remainder of 2014-15. Piercy also collected 52 FedExCup points and sits 25th in the standings entering the holiday break. For the record, he fell 11.140 FedExCup points short of that optional route toward meeting the terms of the MME.

Fred Funk settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to share ninth place at 11-under 273.

This marks Funk's first top 25 on the PGA TOUR since tying for 10th in the 2008 Sony Open. It could have been much better, as his four birdies at El Camaleón GC were offset by just one miscue. The problem was, that blemish was a triple bogey at the par-4 12th hole. At the ripe old age of 58, one has to wonder how many more top 10s the veteran can expect to make on the PGA TOUR. He plays primarily on the Champions Tour.

Charley Hoffman claimed his third PGA TOUR title at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round.

Hoffman finished the week at 17-under 267 and was one stroke clear of Shawn Stefani. The champion bagged four birdies on the front nine before adding two more on the back at El Camaleón Golf Club. His only blemish came on the par-4 18th as a result of a poor drive. Irons were the key to his round and tournament. He landed 16 GIR on the afternoon and finished third with 56 for the week. With this victory, Hoffman is exempt into the Masters and the PGA Championship.

With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his final round of the Turkish Airlines Open at The Montgomerie Maxx Royal in Antalya, Brooks Koepka emerged with a one-stroke victory over Ian Poulter, his first on the European Tour.

Koepka started the day two shots off the 54-hole lead of Australia's Wade Ormsby. The American then poured in five birdies by the 10th hole before adding an eight-foot eagle conversion at the par-5 13th. He had to climb over Poulter, who began the day one swing back. The Brit carded a bogey-free, 5-under 31-36=67, but just got beat. Ormsby closed with 71 to finish in a four-way T4 four strokes off Koepka's pace. "It's a special week obviously, these four events and The Race to Dubai are ones you prepare for all year, and to win one of them is very special," said the champ, who posted 17-under 271. "I feel like I've been playing really well. I've been knocking on the door, and these last maybe two, three months, I've been very close over here and in the States. ... And I've learned something every time, and used that today. I was very relaxed, very calm today, and it showed I guess." He's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Jason Bohn spun a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to take a one-stroke lead over Shawn Stefani into the finale at 15-under 198.

His 67 trailed only Andres Gonzales' 66 for the lowest round of a rainy afternoon. Bohn secured six birdies to just two bogeys on his navigation of El Camaleón GC. He had not recorded a bogey in either of his first two rounds. He struggled to find fairways, splitting just six of 14, but his putter did the heavy lifting as he converted six of his 12 GIR into birdies. The University of Alabama product is a two-time winner on the PGA TOUR, with his most recent coming at the 2010 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Brian Harman chased his opening 66 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 5-over-par 38-38=76 to post even-par 142 and miss the cut by three strokes.

Boy, that escalated quickly; his score, that is. Harman split only three (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens at El Camaleón today. He converted two birdies, but also squared three bogeys and two doubles to end a modest consecutive cuts made streak at four. Other notables that missed the cut include: 140--Davis Love III; William McGirt; Andrew Svoboda ... 141--Carl Pettersson; Bo Van Pelt ... 142--Ángel Cabrera; Garrett Osborn (top 10 at Sanderson Farms); Cameron Smith ... 143--Ben Martin; Camilo Villegas ... 144--Charles Howell III ... 145--Cameron Tringale ... 146--2010 champ Cameron Beckman; Nick Watney ... 147-- 2009 champ Mark Wilson ... 148--Robert Allenby.

Fred Funk turned back the clock and spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The 58-year-old, eight-time PGA TOUR winner won the inaugural edition of this tournament at the age of 50 in 2007, so he knows what it takes to get around El Camaleón Golf Club. Funk split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation today. On top of saving par six times, he converted an eagle and four birdies. The eagle dropped in at the par-5 13th hole; he birdied both par 5s on the front. This is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 65 at the 2008 Travelers Championship. At 8-under 134, Funk is positioned only four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead in México.

Ken Duke torched El Camaleón Golf Club for eight birdies en route to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

This was arguably the best round of Duke's career. Duke striped all 14 fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation to set it up. He buried four birdies on each nine. Somewhat hard to believe is that he's never scored lower than 63 in 225 previous PGA TOUR starts. In fact, today marks just the second time that he's signed for the number. His first 63 occurred in the first round of the 2008 Shriners. At 10-under 132 in México, the 45-year-old is two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
