2009 - Week 17 Predictions Online

We have published the predictions for week 17, the Open de Andalucia (European PGA Tour) and the Arnold Palmer Invitational (US PGA Tour). Both events are hosted by pros this week, with Miguel Angel Jimenez doing the honours in Spain. European Ryder Cup captain and tour stalwart Colin Montgomerie reaches the milestone of 500 European PGA Tournaments this week. It would be great if Monty could mark the historic occasion with another win. On the US PGA Tour, there is an impressive turn out for Arnie's tournament, where Tiger Woods tops the bill. Phil Mickelson is now perilously close to him at the top of the world rankings, so Woods will be eager to get back to winning ways on the Bay Hill track.

The list of pre-2004 champions in the Arnold Palmer Invitational (Golf Predictor uses the results from the previous 5 years) includes Tiger Woods (2003, 2002, 2001 & 2000), Tim Herron (1999), Paul Goydos (1996), Fred Couples (1992) and Paul Azinger (1988). The Open de Andalucia is only in its third year.
