Just tap it in...: It was getting dark and starting to look like the three-way play-off for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open was going to have to be finished on Monday. Jonathan Byrd, Martin Laird and Cameron Percy agreed to play one more hole, the 204 yard par three 17th, but mutually agreed that any one of them could call it off if they couldn't read their putt. Byrd decided to save them all the trouble and holed his six iron tee shot to claim the title [video]. Several hours earlier, Italian Matteo Manassero became the youngest ever winner on the European Tour. The former British Amateur champion, who turned pro at the Italian Open this year, isn't sure what he's going to do with all the money he's won so far as he's not yet old enough to drink or drive and he hasn't got a girlfriend.

If he's anything like my teenage son, it will go on new Wii and DS games.

He can now afford to buy a girlfriend.

Or rent one, at least.
