2009 - Week 48 Winners

In a good day for English golfers, Ian Poulter (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won for the first time in three years on the European PGA Tour at the Barclays Singapore Open. Poulter finished nervously, squandering a one time five shot lead during the third round to eventually hold off Chinese golfer Wen-Chong Liang by a single shot. Our top ranked player, Phil Mickelson finished in tied fourteenth place. In total, we had seven of the top fourteen plus ties (7/20). In the Volvo World Match Play Championship, English man Ross Fisher (ranked twelfth by Golf Predictor) defeated American Anthony Kim (ranked 11th) by 4&3 in the final after a marathon four days of golf.

The Viking Clasic on the US PGA Tour was cancelled due to inclement weather. Incessant rain made the course unplayable, which left the organisers with no choice but to call the whole event off. This was the first cancellation on the US PGA Tour since the the 1996 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
