Woosnam wins in Wales, Torrance jt 14th, Lyle jt 18th

Ian Woosnam has rounded off another successful season by winning the PGA Handa Cup Philanthropy Senior Tournament at Skyway Country Club in Japan.
The 2006 Ryder Cup captain posted a final round of 71 to finish on four under par 284, three strokes clear of runner up Gohei Sato. It was the Welshman's fourth victory as a Senior golfer, following his three wins on the European Senior Tour, and comes a week after he finished second behind Sam Torrance in the Senior Tour Order of Merit.
Torrance closed with a final round 74 to finish in a share of 14th place in Japan while Sandy Lyle’s final round 72 moved him into a share of 18th place.
Last month, The European Senior Tour and WSM Sponsorship announced an exciting new initiative with ISPS in Japan to strengthen the Senior Tour’s ties with the Far East.
The initial one-year partnership between the Senior Tour, WSM Sponsorship and ISPS, founded by Dr Handa, a leading global philanthropist, will help to deliver a new Senior Tour event in Thailand, the details of which will be announced shortly, while consolidating other established tournaments such as the Aberdeen Brunei Senior Masters and the Benahavis Senior Masters Presented by ISPS.Dr Handa is committed to a number of charitable causes, one of which is the support of blind golf around the world.
This new collaboration with the Senior Tour will provide a high-profile vehicle to support this very worthwhile cause. Asia-based Dr Handa already has a close affiliation with the Japanese Senior Tour through his promotion of this week’s PGA Handa Cup Philanthropy Senior Tournament in his native Japan.
