2010 - Week 11 Winners

Camilo Villegas (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won his third US PGA Tour title at the Honda Classic. With a three shot overnight lead, the Colombian was never really threatened in the final round, eventually winning by five shots. Our top ranked player, Lee Westwood, finished in tied 9th place and in another event where many of the bigger names failed to perform, we had four of the top nine plus ties (4/11) in total.

In Asia, Korean teenager Seung-Yul Noh (ranked 40th by Golf Predictor) became the youngest ever winner of a European PGA Tour title at the Maybank Malaysian Open. Despite being all over the shop on the last, 18 year old Noh birdied it to defeat his older compatriot K.J. Choi by a single shot. Our top ranked player, Thongchai Jaidee, could only manage an even par final round and finished in tied 7th. Overall, in a low quality field that was difficult to predict, we had eight of the top nineteen plus ties (8/24) in total.
