2013 - Week 21 Winners

Matteo Manassero (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the BMW PGA Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 20 year old Italian became the youngest ever winner of the flagship event after a play-off with Marc Warren and Simon Khan. It took four holes for Manassero to get the better of the former champion Khan after Warren dropped out at the opening extra hole. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, was one of the many big names who missed the cut in an event. The extremely poor weather on the opening two days took its toll and we had only four of the top twelve plus ties (4/18). 

Boo Weekley (ranked 39th by Golf Predictor) won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial on the US PGA Tour. The popular 39 year old American won his first tour event in five years by a single shot, despite missing a few short putts on the back nine. Our top ranked player, Matt Kuchar, finished in 2nd place and we had only four of the top fourteen plus ties (4/17) in a good week for bookies!
