European Tour Senior Open Championship final leaderboard http://www.pgatour.com/champions/tournaments/senior-open-championship-pres-by-rolex.html
Under rather benign conditions at Carnoustie the record books will show that English journeyman Paul Broadhurst won the Senior Open Championship for his first senior major title, closing with a -4 68 for a two-stroke victory over Scott McCarron.
It's a "massive deal" as he said, for a guy who just turned 50, who's son told people in his local supermarket " my Dad used to be a good golfer", and in a nice moment after his round he was hugged by his wife, and that son, to whom he said " I guess I'm a good golfer again !" I will say that between Broadhurst and Jesper Parnevik they need to get Valium as a sponsor. Man, they are both wound up tighter than a bull's backside in fly season.
Sadly for me the other side of the story was the collapse of Miguel Jimenez who was so in control in round 3, but after he missed a little 4 footer on the 4th green he was not the same guy and he slipped to a 75 to drop into a T3 with Magnus Atlevi (67) at -8. He was vying for his first major win as well.
“The 75 was the other side of the coin from Saturday,” Jimenez said. “I was a little bit tense, not loose in the beginning of the round, and then didn’t play as well as yesterday.”

Format for the International Crown http://www.lpga.com/tournaments/international-crown/format
I have included an explanation of the format for this confusing event, now in it's second year. It is sponsored by Rolex, one of the tour's official sponsors so I believe this is to reward them and also give players from Asia who can't play in the Solheim Cup, a team event to compete in.
AP....Cristie Kerr held on for a 3-and-2 victory over Melissa Reid of England to give the United States the UL International Crown.
“I think I play better when there is more pressure,” said Kerr, who was the last player to tee off for the U.S.
Lewis and Piller ran to the green for a group hug with Kerr when it was over. Kerr’s caddie, Brady Stockton, grabbed the flag at 16 to save it for his player.
Lexi Thompson lost 2 and 1 to South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu, and then joined the celebration at a muggy Merit Club about 40 miles northwest of Chicago.
The Americans won a silver trophy, and each of the players took home a crown and $100,000 apiece.
