By Louis Charbonneau and Parisa Hafezi VIENNA (Reuters) - Iranian officials say they can turn to Beijing and Moscow if talks in Vienna fail to end Western sanctions, but with oil prices falling, China's economy slowing and Russia in its own sanctions-induced slump, Tehran's "plan B" hardly looks ideal. Talks between Iran and six powers, which include China and Russia as well as the United States and three big EU countries, are expected to fail to reach a deal to lift U.S. and EU sanctions by a deadline on Monday. ...

By Matt Smith DUBAI (Reuters) - As he picked up the European money list trophy for the second time in three seasons on Sunday, Rory McIlroy had two words to say when asked for his goals for 2015: "Green Jacket". To golfers, that phrase means one thing -- winning the U.S. Masters, the only major championship to elude the Northern Irishman. "It's not something I thought possible, I will work hard and make sure I'm ready for that," McIlroy told reporters after tying for second at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, the European Tour season-ender. ...
By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Nick Cullen nervelessly struck a sublime bunker shot for a tap-in par putt on the last hole to win the Australian Masters by a stroke in Melbourne and frustrate Adam Scott's bid for a hat-trick of titles on Sunday. Clinging to a one-stroke lead on the 18th, Cullen's approach shot found a steep sand-trap left of the green, but the unheralded South Australian put his recovery within two feet of the hole to seal the biggest win of his career on a sun-drenched afternoon at Metropolitan Golf Club. ...
By Matt Smith DUBAI (Reuters) - Defending champion Henrik Stenson retained the $8 million DP World Tour Championship on Sunday, carding a final-round 70 to finish two shots clear and cement his status as Europe’s number two golfer. Overnight leaders Stenson and Rafael Cabrera-Bello started the day on 14-under, three strokes clear of England’s Justin Rose, with four players including world number one Rory McIlroy a stroke further back. ...
Suzy Whaley, a former LPGA player who qualified and played in a 2003 men's PGA event, was elected Saturday as the first woman officer in the PGA of America's history. The balloting all-but assures that Whaley, who was voted into a two-year term as secretary, will become the first president in the organization's history in 2018 as officers typically rotate into higher PGA roles. Derek Sprague was elected president and Paul Levy was elected as vice president. The PGA of America also announced that the role of honorary president, which outgoing president's serve for two years, will be retained by Allen Wronowski for two more years rather than passed along to Ted Bishop, who was outsed as the PGA of America president last month for a remark made in a Twitter posting.
MANILA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Singaporean Mardan Mamat romped to an emotional six-shot win at the $1 million Manila Masters on Sunday to preserve his playing privileges on the Asian Tour for another two years. The 47-year-old entered the week in danger of losing his card but a three-under-par 69 in the wind at the Jack Nicklaus designed Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club was more than enough to claim his fourth Asian Tour title and first since the 2012 Philippine Open. "It means a lot to me," said Mamat, who fell to his knees and kissed the green after closing with a par at the last. ...
