2009 - Week 11 Winners

Asian Tour member Anthong Kang (ranked 80th by Golf Predictor) won a closely fought Maybank Malaysian Open. The 36 year old American won his first European PGA Tour title by a single shot thanks to a comfortable two putt birdie on the par five 72nd hole. Our top pick, Louis Oosthuizen, closed strongly with a 65 for another top ten finish (tied 7th) and we also had Prayad Marksaeng in the top 10. After a poor start, highly fancied American Anthony Kim (ranked 2) rallied somewhat with a final day 67 for a share of 33rd place.

On the US Tour, Dustin Johnson (ranked 28th by Golf Predictor) won the weather affected AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. The 24 year old American picked up his second US PGA Tour title without hitting a shot in the final round as the event was shortened to 54 holes. The big guns didn't acquit them very well this week either and it's fairly meaningless to compare performance without the pressure cooker of a final found.
