2009 - Week 47 Winners

Michael Jonzon (ranked 82nd by Golf Predictor) won for the first time in twelve years on the European PGA Tour at the Castello Masters Costa Azahar. The Swede, who needed to finish in the top two to secure his card for next year, survived a nervy closing stretch to hold off defending champion Sergio Garcia and the returning Martin Kaymer. Garcia was our top ranked player and finished in fourth place. In total, we had five of the top eight plus ties (5/11).

It was a similar story on the US PGA Tour, where Troy Matteson (ranked 65th by Golf Predictor) tried his best not to secure his second US PGA Tour victory at the Open. Matteson bogeyed the final two holes to fall into a three way play-off with Jamie Lovemark and Richie Fowler. However, he managed to prevail with a splendid approach to the second extra hole to two feet for birdie. Our top ranked player, Mike Weir, finished in tied sixth and we had eight of the top thirteen plus ties (8/22) in total.
