From three shots off the pace to three shots clear of the field, Bernd Wiesberger put on a stunning display of golf this past Sunday to emerge victorious at the Alstom Open de France.

The Austrian got off to a fast start, carding five birdies on the front-nine to turn in 31 and continued his steady play on the back-nine where his round culminated with another birdie on the 18th for a 6-under-par 65 final round tally - capping off a 13-under 271 total score for the week.

This marks Wiesberger's third career European Tour title and highlights an already impressive 2015 campaign that includes six Top 10 finishes in his 13 starts on the European Tour. The win moves Wiesberger into fourth place in the Race to Dubai rankings and vaults him up 16 spots in the Official World Golf Ranking to 23rd.

It was a dramatic 1-2 finish for Titleist Staff Professionals at the 48th PGA Professional National Championship (PNC) at Philadelphia Cricket Club. Matt Dobyns (Pro V1x), the PGA Head Professional at Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success, N.Y., birdied the 18th hole to finish one shot clear of PGA Assistant Professional Ben Polland (Pro V1x) of Deepdale Golf Club in Manhasset, N.Y.

Dobyns and Polland lead a group of 20 PGA Professionals who earned a spot in the 97th PGA Championship next month at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

This marks the second PGA Professional National Championship victory for Dobyns, who also claimed top honors in his championship debut in 2012. With the win, Dobyns becomes just the fifth player in the 48-year history of the PGA Professional National Championship to win multiple times.

Titleist Staff Professional Ryan Kennedy (Pro V1x), the Director of Instruction at Oakmont Country Club in Glendale, Calif., also made his mark in the championship by posting a final round 4-under-par 66 to establish a new competitive course record for the Wissahickon Golf Course.
