2009 - Week 13 Winners

Australian Geoff Ogilvy (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) improved his splendid record in the WGC - Accenture Match Play Championship by defeating England's Paul Casey (ranked 9th) 4&3 in the 36 hole final. Casey, who had brought the impressive record of never trailing in this year's event into the final, found Ogilvy too hot to handle as the Aussie chalked up his second win of the young US PGA Tour season. Stewart Cink completed a bad day for the English by beating Ross Fisher 1 up in the third place play-off.

Elsewhere, Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (ranked 2nd* by Golf Predictor) ended his four year European PGA Tour drought by winning the Enjoy Jakarta Indonesia Open. We had three out of the top four and four out of the top seven and ties. The minor event on the US PGA Tour was won by Mark Wilson (ranked 32nd by Golf Predictor). Despite a late wobble, Wilson secured his second US PGA Tour title the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun, where we had two out of the top six and ties.

*Our top ranked player, Anthony Wall, did not play, so we bump everyone else up one place.
