2013 - Week 18 Winners

Brett Rumford (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the Volvo China Open on the European PGA Tour.The 35 year old Australian completed a memorable fortnight by securing a Far Eastern double. Fresh off his win last week in Korea, Rumford easily held off Mikko Ilonen in the final round in China to secure his second successive tournament win. Our top ranked player, Branden Grace, finished in tied 33rd, but we had ten of the top fourteen plus ties (10/20)*.

Rookie Derek Ernst (ranked 157th by Golf Predictor) won the Wells Fargo Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 22 year old American won his first title in only his ninth event, beating David Lynn on the first play-off hole. Phil Mickelson will be kicking himself after coming unstuck on the Green Mile, dropping out of the lead with two bogeys in his last three holes. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished in tied 11th and we had seven of the top sixteen plus ties (7/21)** in total.

*Due to David Howell's non-finish, Lee Slattery gets promoted into the top twenty of the GP rankings. 
** Dustin Johnson didn't play, so D.A. Points gets promoted into the top twenty one of the GP rankings.
