2008 - Week 28 Winners

I don't think Nostradamus himself could have predicted the outcome of the Wales Open this year! Even Golf Predictor's top pick, Oliver Wilson, was only a 52.3% probability to succeed. A golfer ranked 164 in the world won while most of the 'big' names bombed, either missing the cut or finishing well down the field. Padraig Harrington must have been particularly embarrassed, as he was rumoured to have been given a serious wad just to turn up. Well done to Scott Strange though, who finished with a real flourish with a blemish free 64. Tough luck on the consistent Robert Karlsson who also burned up the course only to find he was still miles behind the winner. Last week's winner, Miguel Angel Jimenez, withdrew, leaving Golf Predictor with just Karlsson of the top ten playing to form.

Kenny Perry also hit a good final round to win Jack's tournament in Ohio for the third time. He would have been ranked higher than 7th on our list had the first victory had not been before 2003 (1991), which is how far back our records go. Vijay Singh didn't tee it up in The Memorial either, so he must really be badly injured as he sure likes to play.
