2012 - Week 28 Winners

Jeev Milkha Singh (ranked 34th by Golf Predictor) won the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open on the European PGA Tour. The 40 year old Indian finished early and waited while several players did their best not to surpass him. Eventually, Francesco Molinari holed a clutch par putt on the final hole to force a play-off after both ended on -17. However, Singh was not to be denied and he won with a birdie on the first extra hole to win his fourth tour title. Our top ranked player, defending champion, Luke Donald, finished in tied 16th place and in an event where a lot of the bigger names didn't perform, we had six of the top sixteen plus ties (6/23).  

Zach Johnson (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the John Deere Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 36 year old American also needed a play-off, beating Troy Matteson on the second extra hole. Local favourite Johnson won with a brilliant approach from a fairway bunker to less than a foot to pip the long time leader. Our top ranked player, defending champion, Steve Stricker, just came up short in his effort to win the event four times in a row, finishing in tied 5th and we had eleven of the top nineteen plus ties (11/24)*. 

*Due to withdrawals, Rory Sabbatini make the top 24 in our rankings.
