2012 - Week 47 Winner

Scott Jamieson (ranked 21st by Golf Predictor) won The Nelson Mandela Championship pres. by ISPS Handa on the European PGA Tour. The 29 year old Scot won his maiden tour title in a three man play-off at the rain shortened event. Despite being six shots behind after day one of the 36 hole event, Jamieson finished in style with a 57 (-8) on the shortened par 65 course. That was good enough to tie Steve Webster and Eduardo De La Riva on -7 for the championship. After an anxious wait to see if any late starter would overhaul them, Jamieson prevailed on the second extra hole. Our top ranked player, Branden Grace, finished in tied 39th and the weather turned the event into a sprint lottery! We only managed eight of the top twenty one plus ties (8/31), but hope to improve this week when (hopefully) normal 72 hole tournament play will resume!

  1. Further to the earlier post on the new GP season, the first two events of the 2013 European Tour season have been added to the 2012 GP Season for stats purposes. 
  2. Apologies for the late posting - an oversight on my part!
