2011 - Week 26 Winners

Rory McIlroy (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the second major of the season, the US Open on the European/US PGA Tour. The 22 year old Northern Irish man  put his Masters nightmare behind him with a magisterial display of golf. McIlroy decimating the field with his precision play to win by eight shots and fulfil all his early promise in the sport. His great victory also keeps the US Open trophy in Northern Ireland for another year! Our top ranked player, Lee Westwood, overcame a poor opening round of 75 to finish in tied 3rd. Overall, we had six of the top fourteen plus ties in total (6/18).

Matthew Zions (ranked 29th by Golf Predictor) won the Saint Omer Open pres by Neuflize OBC on the European PGA Tour. The 32 year old Australian was also a run away winner, finishing some seven shots clear of the field. Our top ranked player, Daniel Gaunt, finished in tied 67th and in a hard to predict event played in bad weather conditions, we had about seven of the top seventeen plus ties in total (7/23)*.

*Four late entrants who weren't in the field at the time the predictions were generated finished in the top seventeen plus ties, so it is difficult to make a direct comparison.
