2013 - Week 15 Winner

Adam Scott (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won the first major of the year, The Masters (European/US PGA Tour). The 32 year old Australian finally won the major his talent deserved with a play-off over Angel Cabrera. In becoming the first Masters champion from Australia, Scott exorcised the demons from his collapse at The Open last year. Scott probably thought he had won it with a closing birdie, but Cabrera hit an incredible shot under pressure to three feet to force the play-off. However, the Aussie wasn't to be denied and he prevailed at the second extra hole with another birdie. Our top ranked player, Tiger Woods, controversially survived a major disqualification scare to finish in tied 4th. Many thought the world number one should have been ejected from the tournament due to an improper drop on the fifteenth hole in round two. However, a relatively recent change in the rules was invoked to enable him to escape with a two shot penalty. Overall, we had eleven of the top twenty plus ties (11/24).
