2012 - Week 4 Winners

Robert Rock (ranked 44th by Golf Predictor) won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old Englishman held off a strong field, including major champions Graeme McDowell, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy to secure his second tour title. Our top ranked player, Luke Donald, finished tied 48th and we had ten of the top seventeen (10/23) in total.

Brandt Snedeker (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Farmers Insurance Open on the US PGA Tour. The comeback king struck again with a play-off victory over Kyle Stanley, who imploded with a triple bogey eight on the 72nd hole. That unfortunate collapse allowed Snedeker to overcome a seven shot deficit to secure his third tour title, all of which have been won from at least five behind on the final day. Our top ranked player, Nick Watney, finished in tied 60th after a poor weekend and we had eleven of the top twenty two plus ties (11/26).
