2010 - Week 22 Winners

Jason Day (ranked 65th by Golf Predictor) won his maiden title on the US PGA Tour at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. The 22 year old Australian, who almost didn't play due to illness, won despite bogeying the last. Luckily for him, his closest challenger and playing partner Blake Adams double bogeyed the 72nd hole. Our top ranked player, Hunter Mahan, finished in tied 50th and we had ten of the top twenty three plus ties (10/25) in total.

Simon Khan (ranked 91st by Golf Predictor) came through the field to win the flagship event on the European PGA Tour, the BMW PGA Championship. The likeable Englishman finished with an impressive 66 on the remodelled Wentworth course to take the title that nobody else seemed to want to win! In a strange day's play where most of the leaders went backwards, number 471 in the world Khan came from nowhere to take the title. Our top ranked player, Lee Westwood, also finished strongly with a 66 for a share of 10th place and we had six of the top thirteen plus ties (6/16) in total.
