2010 - Week 29 Winners

Steve Stricker (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the John Deere Classic on the US PGA Tour. Despite Paul Goydos' opening historic 59, Stricker's opening rounds of 60, 66 & 62 set a PGA Tour 54 hole record and gave him a 6 shot lead over the aforementioned Goydos. Despite a rally in the final round by his closest competitor, Stricker held on to win by two shots in the end. Including the winner, we had seven of the top fifteen plus ties (7/20).

Edoardo Molinari (ranked 20th by Golf Predictor) won his maiden European PGA Tour at The Barclays Scottish Open. In the company of his younger brother Francesco and nearest challenger Darren Clarke, the Italian held his nerve admirably. Mind you, he was helped by Clarke's poor start, which removed some of the pressure. Our top ranked player, Phil Mickelson, was one of the many big names to miss the cut, after he had a calamitous 9 on the par 4 18th on Friday. Despite this, we had seven of the top twenty one plus ties (7/25) in total.
