2010 - Week 46 Winner

Francesco Molinari (ranked 19th by Golf Predictor) kept the recent Italian run going by winning the WGC-HSBC Champions event on the European/US PGA Tour. The 28 year old Molinari was congratulated for holding off Lee Westwood on the 72nd green and claiming his first title for four years by his older brother. It was the first time in European Tour history that the same players had been first and second on all four days. Indeed they matched each other score for score over the final three days with the single shot difference on Thursday proving to be decisive. Our top ranked player, Tiger Woods*, started and finished well to end up tied 6th and we had seven of the top six plus ties (7/12) in total*.

*Westwood was our original top ranked player until concerns about his injury caused him to be downgraded. Drat!
