2009 - Week 32 Winners

Martin Kaymer (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won his second European PGA Tour title in a row (and fourth overall) at The Barclays Scottish Open. Playing steadily on the final day, the German secured the title as his nearest competitors crumbled all around him. Our top ranked player, Geoff Ogilvy, finished in tied thirteenth place and we had eight of the top thirteen plus ties (8/16).

On the US PGA Tour, Steve Stricker (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) easily won the rain affected John Deere Classic. After a sparkling 61 on Saturday, Stricker followed up with 68 and 64 in the two rounds on Sunday to win by 3 shots. We came very close to predicting the winner for the third straight week, but since our top pick Kenny Perry (finished in tied 59th) has a difficult personal situation to deal with, we couldn't really expect him to focus on golf. In a tournament where most of the more fancied golfers did not produce the goods, we had six of the top fifteen plus ties (5/21).
