2013 - Week 23 Winners

Joost Luiten (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Dutchman overcame a shaky start on the final day to win his second tour title by two shots. Our top ranked player, Bernd Wiesberger, finished in tied 14th, which was just shy of what he needed to qualify for next week's US Open (top twelve finish). Overall, we had twelve of the top nineteen plus ties (12/24) in total*.

Harris English (ranked 35th by Golf Predictor) won the FedEx St. Jude Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 23 year old American won his first tour title with a nerveless back nine on Sunday to win by two shots. Scott Stallings will be kicking himself though, having let a winning position slip on the closing stretch. Our top ranked player, Brandt Snedeker continued his poor form since returning from injury by missing the cut. A lot of the bigger names failed to perform in this final tune-up for the US Open and we had eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/26).

*Whiteford was a non-finisher, thus promoting Liang into the top 24 in the GP rankings.
