Aiken hoping to earn wedding gift in Spanish Open

Aiken hoping to earn wedding gift in Spanish Open

Thomas Aiken begins his title defense in the 100th Spanish Open on Thursday in a lot lighter mood than last year.
The 2011 Spanish Open became Aiken's first European Tour success, but in a week when the golf world was mourning the death of Seve Ballesteros.
This week, the Johannesburg golfer is looking forward to his pending marriage this month to fiancee Kate Midgley.
Ideally, Aiken would like to duplicate American Jason Dufner, who last week won the U.S. PGA Tour event in New Orleans six days before his marriage.
"It would be fabulous if I could manage what Jason did last week in the States as that would be a great wedding gift," Aiken said. "We're getting married later this month in the Bahamas so it's coming up very quickly."
