Rory Sabbatini        

South African professional golfer on the PGA Tour

Rory Mario Trevor Sabbatini (born 2 April 1976) is a South African professional golfer. He currently resides in Fort Worth, Texas, United States.

He started playing golf at age 4 and eventually was recruited by the University of Arizona, before turning professional in 1998.  He joined the PGA Tour just one year later.  

While on tour, he has three career wins and has started off his 2006 season very strong.  He has also been featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Sabbatini has represented South Africa in the WGC-World Cup three times and won the event with Trevor Immelman in 2003.

In March 2011 Sabbatini won his sixth PGA Tour Title at The Honda Classic with a one stroke victory over South Korea's Y. E. Yang. Sabbatini entered the final round with a five stroke lead over the rest of the field, helped by a course record-equalling 64 on day two. He started his final round in solid fashion with an early birdie at the 3rd hole, however as the round progressed he made bogeys at the 9th and 14th, meaning that Yang was able to cut that lead to just one, with a spectacular tee shot on the par-three 15th that landed 18 inches past the pin. On the next hole though, Sabbatini holed a clutch birdie putt to tighten his grip on the title and played out the 17th and 18th in even-par to hold on for a one stroke victory. This win also secured him a place at the 2011 Masters Tournament.
