England’s David Howell is the chairman of the European Tour’s tournament committee, having replaced Thomas Bjorn earlier this year as he focused on his European Ryder Cup captain’s duties. But that doesn’t mean he’s "above the law," if you will. Playing in the second round of the HNA Open de France, Howell mistakenly showed up late to his tee time at Le Golf National outside Paris.
Japanese-Vietnamese Hanako Kawasaki claimed victory at the 2018 Vietnam's Ladies Amateur Open on Monday at the SAM Tuyền Lâm Resort in Đà Lạt.
