2012 - Week 45 Winners

Miguel Angel Jimenez (ranked 11th by Golf Predictor) won the UBS Hong Kong Open on the European PGA Tour. The popular 48 year old Spaniard held is nerve on the tricky finishing hole to win by a shot from Fredrik Andersson Hed. In winning the event for the third time, Jimenez overtook Ireland's Des Smyth as the oldest ever winner on tour. The defending champion and our top ranked golfer, Rory McIlroy, cited fatigue for missing the cut in a disappointing showing. However, we had nine of the top nineteen plus ties (9/21) in total.

Henrik Stenson (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the South African Open on the European PGA Tour. The 36 year old Swede handled the pressure of holding on to qualification for Dubai admirably by winning his first tour title in over three years. Our top ranked golfer, Charl Schwartzel, finished in 5th place and we had eleven of the top seventeen plus ties (11/20) in total.
