2008 - Week 27 Winners

A great performance by Golf Predictor on our first day live! We successfully predicted our second winner since we started running predictions a few short weeks ago. OK, it wasn't rocket science to pick him, but well done to Phil Mickleson, who played a brilliant shot on the 18th from the sort of position I usually find myself in on the golf course! I've yet to hit it to 8 feet and sink the birdie from there, but at least I know now it can be done! We also got Stephen Ames and Ben Crane in the top 10, so not a bad performance at all from us at the Colonial.

It looked like another Irish man was going to win the flagship European PGA Championship after 2 rounds. Paul McGinley played brilliantly over the first 2 days but fell away badly in round 3. Robert Karlsson took control in round 3 and then "did a McGinley" in round 4, throwing away his lead. Well done to Miguel Angel Jimenez for coming through strongly, even acing the par 3 5th. He really likes any tournament sponsored by BMW, so that's my expert tip for the next one! Our top pick to win, Vijay Singh, pulled out at the last minute, so excluding him, we had 2 out of the top 4, thanks to Luke Donald's late surge up the leaderboard. Our top pick, Ernie Els, tanked on what practically is his course!
