2008 - Week 47 Winners

South African Charl Schwartzel (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the Madrid Masters in style, shooting a bogey free 66 to clinch the title. It looks like Gonzalo Fdez-Castano spent more time promoting the event than practicing for it, as he missed the cut! Our top pick, Miguel Angel Jimenez, finished in a tie for 29th. We also had Thongchai Jaidee, Ricardo Gonzalez and Damien McGrane in the top twelve.

On the US Tour, former Masters champion and Georgia specialist Zack Johnson (ranked 11th* by Golf Predictor) turned his poor season around by winning the Valero Texas Open. Johnson wrapped up his first victory outside Georgia in style with a weekend finish of 62-64. Our top pick and local favourite, Justin Leonard, failed to add to his 3 titles and ended up in a tie for 11th. We also had Mark Wilson, Rory Sabbatini and Stephen Ames in the top 12.

*Briny Baird (ranked 4th) did not tee it up.
