2012 - Week 23 Winners

Lee Westwood (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Nordea Masters on the European PGA Tour for the third time. The 39 year old Englishman gave himself the perfect fillip for next week's US Open by easing to a five shot victory in Sweden. He might want to work on his short putting though, as it would have been a rout had he not missed a host of chances from inside ten feet. Including the winner, we had eight of the top seventeen plus ties (8/21) in total.

Dustin Johnson (ranked 3rd by Golf Predictor) won the FedEx St. Jude Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old American won his sixth tour title by a single shot in only his second comeback event from a back injury. Three of his nearest competitors (McIlroy, Campbell and O'Hern) made it easy on him by driving into the water on the final hole. Rory McIlroy was our top ranked player and finished in tied 7th after double bogeying the said finishing hole. Despite a lot of the bigger names not performing, we had five of the top thirteen plus ties (5/18).
