2011 - Week 25 Winners

Robert Rock (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the BMW Italian Open pres. by CartaSi on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old Englishman ended a nine year wait for his first title by holding out for a one shot victory. Our top ranked player, Francesco Molinari, finished in tied 8th and we had ten of the top fifteen plus ties in total (10/22).

Harrison Frazar (ranked 111th by Golf Predictor) won the FedEx St. Jude Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 39 year old American also ended a long wait (355 events) for a first title by winning a close battle with Robert Karlsson . After being nip and tuck all day, they ended up in a play-off after Karlsson bogeyed 17 and Frazar followed suit on 18. The American eventually prevailed on the third extra hole after Karlsson failed to get up and down from just off the green. Our top ranked player, Lee Westwood, finished in tied 11th and despite a lot of the bigger names not performing, we had eight of the top twenty two plus ties (8/24)*.

*Holmes and Simpson didn't play, thus elevating Howell III into the top 24 of the rankings.
