2009 - Week 12 Predictions Online

We have published the predictions for week 12, the Johnnie Walker Classic (European PGA Tour) and the Northern Trust Open (US PGA Tour). The Johnnie Walker Classic is returning to The Vines Resort & Country Club in Perth, Australia for the first time since 2006 and boasts an impressive international field. Meanwhile in America, Japanese prodigy Ryo Ishikawa will make his much anticipated US PGA Tour debut. Phil Mickleson must be hoping that it will take the spotlight off his wretched start to the season as he defends his title at the Riviera Country Club.

The list of pre-2004 champions in the Northern Trust Open (Golf Predictor uses the results from the previous 5 years) stretches back 20 years and includes Mike Weir (2003 ), Robert Allenby (2001), Kirk Triplett (2000), Ernie Els (1999), Billy Mayfair (1998), Corey Pavin (1995 & 1994), Fred Couples (1992 & 1990) and Mark Calcavecchia (1989). The only corresponding Johnnie Walker Classic former champion in the field is Greg Norman (1994).
