2012 - Week 29 Winners

Ernie Els (ranked 30th by Golf Predictor) won The Open Championship on the European/US PGA Tour. The 42 year old South African crowned his recent return to form with a fourth major title after long time leader Adam Scott faltered badly on the back nine. In contrast, Els finished in style, covering the difficult closing nine holes in 32 shots, including a birdie at the last. Our top ranked player, Lee Westwood, suffered yet more major disappointment, finishing in tied 45th place. Overall, we had seven of the top nine plus ties (7/18). 

Scott Stallings (ranked 26th by Golf Predictor) won the True South Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old American won his second tour title by two shots, turning around his poor recent form to set a tournament scoring record of 264 (-24). Our top ranked player, Brendon de Jonge, finished in tied 31st and in an event with a lot of late withdrawals, we had six of the top eighteen plus ties (6/20)*.
