2009 - Week 20 Winners

Australian Scott Strange (ranked 17th by Golf Predictor) has won his second European PGA Tour victory at the Volvo China Open. A timely birdie burst on the back nine consigned Gonzalo Fdez-Castano (ranked 1st) to his second runner up finish in a row. In a tournament with high scoring, we had five of the top eleven plus ties.

On the US PGA Tour, Brian Gay (ranked 27th) also secured his second title with a run away victory at the Verizon Heritage. Gay finished in style with a 64 for a ten shot victory as none of the pack did much chasing. The winning score (-20) and winning margin were both records. Whatever big names came down from Augusta had a Masters hangover as almost all failed to perform. Robert Allenby's long cut streak of 32 came to an end, but our top pick Paul Casey rallied with a 66 on Sunday to finish in a tie for 11th place.
