Michael Hoey still in the hunt at Rocco Forte Open

Michael Hoey still in the hunt at Rocco Forte Open

Watch how Haotong Li holed out for a rare albatross at the Rocco Forte Open.

Marcus Fraser and Wade Ormsby lead the Australians through 36 holes of the Rocco Forte Open in Italy, the pair at 10 under par after both recorded consecutive rounds of 66 to be five shots off the pace set by the long hitting Alvaro Quiros of Spain.

Quiros had a seven-shot lead at one stage in the final round, but then started to give away strokes left and right, allowing Lombard to close the gap.

Hoey enjoyed an excellent bogey free round around the Verdura, Sicily course, getting five birdies each on the front and back nines.

After both Quiros and Lombard parred the first playoff hole, Quiros also made par on the next hole while Lombard missed a three-footer to end his hopes of a first victory.

Former SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive will leave Tesla
Rive's departure comes as Tesla prepares to launch the Model 3, its more affordable electric sedan, in July. Rive, 40, said SolarCity was "healthier than it's ever been", and the time had come for him to move on .

Cisco shares fall on weak revenue outlook
The company reported the earnings of $0.57/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.56/share. Narrowing in a bit closer, the 5 month price index is 1.11147, the 3 month is 1.05536, and the 1 month is now 1.03177.

China economic growth takes another step back
Industrial production rose 6.5% from a year earlier, against the 7% predicted in a Bloomberg poll of analysts, and the 7.1% by Reuters.

Quiros was flawless during the second round, with an eagle, five birdies and no dropped shots. Li was boarding a bus to the airport when he was made aware of the leader's struggles over the final holes and was still unpacking his clubs when he found out he was a shot out of the playoff.

"My game today was a little bit worse than yesterday, but my putting on the back nine was unbelievable so I'm very happy", Quiros said.

The final words came from the victor who will try to restart a career that looked so promising in 2010, when his big-hitting delighted fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

Quiros has committed to playing mainly on the Challenge Tour this season in an effort to regain his European Tour card and added: "I'm not going to fix my situation in one day or in one tournament, so hopefully I can keep working, still adding good rounds and at the end of the year come back to the Tour".

And former Masters champion Mike Weir made his first halfway cut since November 2014 after a battling display. That means he's playing in Sicily this week instead of the $10 million BMW PGA Championship next.
