Irishman Michael Hoey won his first European title in a playoff over Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano. I watched this final round and it was pretty exciting. I was hoping Fernandez-Castano would win, but it's nice to see a first time winner too.
An interesting note: On the European PGA Tour website they have the Race to Dubai rankings. Geoff Ogilvy is first and Paul Casey is second. After the WGC event earlier in the year and this week's Houston Open where they were paired together, it's interesting that they are tied together by these rankings as well. Sort of like how Sergio and Vijay Singh kept getting paired together last year and even some this year.
