2012 - Week 18 Winners

Francesco Molinari (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Reale Seguros Open de Espana on the European PGA Tour. The 29 year old Italian won his third tour title in style, finishing with a 65 (-7) to win by three shots. The tough layout in Seville combined with the weather over the first three days gave the players a stern test of golf. Including the winner, we had eight of the top sixteen plus ties (8/20).

Rickie Fowler (ranked 18th by Golf Predictor) won the Wells Fargo Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 23 year old American finally started to fulfil his potential by seeing off D.A. Points and new (again!) world number one Rory McIlroy on the first extra hole. Fowler sealed victory with a bold wedge to four feet on the tough eighteenth hole to set up the winning birdie. McIlroy was our top ranked player, so we just missed out on having a rare double winner week! Despite some of the bigger names (e.g. Woods, Mickelson and Mahan) not performing too well, we had eight of the top fifteen plus ties (8/20) in total.
