2013 - Week 35 Winners

Gregory Bourdy (ranked 41st by Golf Predictor) won the ISPS Handa Wales Open on the European PGA Tour. The 31 year old Frenchman won his fourth European PGA Tour event with a brilliant finish. After bogeying thirteen and fourteen in the challenging conditions, Bourdy birdied the three final holes to deny Peter Uihlein and get his Ryder Cup qualification bid off to a great start. Our top ranked player, Francesco Molinari, missed the cut, but we had nine of the top eighteen plus ties in total (9/25)*.

Henrik Stenson (ranked 17th by Golf Predictor) won the Deutsche Bank Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 37 year old Swede capped his consistent season by finally securing the win he deserved. Stenson won by two shots to overtake Tiger Woods at the top of the FedEx rankings. Woods was our top ranked player, but he never really featured and  finished in tied 65th. Overall, we had eight of the top sixteen plus ties (8/19).

*Non finishes promote de la Riva into the top 25 in the GP rankings.
