2012 - Week 2 Winners

Branden Grace (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the Joburg Open on the European PGA Tour. The 23 year old South African captured his maiden title in his home country by holding off a charging Jamie Elson. Our top ranked player, Charl Schwartzel, made a rather tame effort for a hat-trick of titles by missing the cut. Overall, we had eight of the top sixteen (8/16).

In the first full field event of the 2012 US PGA Tour season, Johnson Wagner
(ranked 66th by Golf Predictor) won the Sony Open in Hawaii. Sporting a new "Magnum P.I." look, the 31 year old American may have started a new facial hair trend among aspiring pros! Our top ranked player, Steve Stricker, failed to build on last week's success and finished in tied 38th. Overall, it proved a very bad week for the bigger names (and so a great week for bookies!) and we had only six of the top twenty three plus ties (6/28).
