2008 - Week 51 Winner

Davis Love III (ranked 24th by Golf Predictor) battled back from injury to re-enter the winner's circle and claim his 20th career US PGA Tour victory in the Children's Miracle Network Classic. In the final event of the 2008 season, Love finished with a bogey free 64 to secure a lifetime exemption on the US PGA Tour. However, he had to scramble up the last couple of holes to win by a single shot over Tommy Gainey who had the week of his season. Jeff Overton continued his brave performances in the past 2 weeks by securing his card just 3 weeks after an appendix operation. Martin Laird holed an 8 footer on 18 to secure 125th place on the money list and hence his playing privileges for next year. Now there's a pressure putt!

Not a great end to the season for Golf Predictor as events with low quality fields tend to be harder to predict. Our top pick, Stewart Cink, finished in 43th and we only had Scott Verplank in the top ten as the bigger names all underperformed. Maybe next year, we'll have to factor in a player's desire to keep his card in the final events of the season!
