2011 - Week 24 Winners

Alexander Noren (ranked 33th by Golf Predictor) won the Saab Wales Open on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Swede eased to his second tour title, winning by two shots in difficult conditions. Despite the victory, it's off to Sunningdale tomorrow for Noren to try and qualify for the British Open! Our top ranked player, the defending champion Graeme McDowell, finished in tied 30th after a horrendous 81 (+10) on Saturday. The breezy conditions upset the form book and we had three of the top eight plus ties in total (3/11).

Steve Stricker (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance on the US PGA Tour. The 44 year old American won by one in a nervy finish after a rain delay had halted his momentum and given him enough time to doubt himself. Our top ranked player, Luke Donald, finished in tied 7th for his tenth top ten in a row on both major tours. Overall, we had seven of the top thirteen plus ties (7/17).
