2011 - Week 15 Winners

David Horsey (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the Trophee Hassan II on the European PGA Tour. He got his second victory the hard way (despite acing the second!), double bogeying the last from the fairway to fall into a three man play-off. However, the 25 year old Englishman prevailed over defending champion Rhys Davies and Jaco Van Zyl with a birdie at the second extra hole. Our top ranked player, Thomas Bjorn, finished very strongly with a 62 (-10) for tied 15th and we had six of the top fifteen plus ties (6/18).

Phil Mickelson (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won the Shell Houston Open on the US PGA Tour. The former world number two showed a timely return to form with a superb weekend display (63-65, -16) to win by three. With this win, he moves back up to third in the world, finally overtaking Tiger Woods at the umpteenth time of asking! Our top ranked player, Lee Westwood finished in tied 30th and we had thirteen of the top twenty four plus ties (13/29) in total.
