2013 - Week 37 Winners

Joost Luiten (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the the KLM Open on the European PGA Tour. There were jubilant scenes as the home favourite secured the title in difficult conditions. Luiten defeated veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez at the second extra hole after the duo finished locked on -12 after 72 holes. Our top ranked player, Matteo Manassero, finished in tied 26th and we had six of the top sixteen plus ties (6/21)*.

On the US Tour, Zach Johnson (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the third event of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the rain delayed BMW Championship. The 37 year old American finished impressively with two birdies in his last three holes to win by two from Nick Watney. Despite shooting just the sixth ever 59 in US PGA Tour history in difficult conditions on Friday, Jim Furyk failed to convert a third round lead into a victory for the sixth time in a row and had to settle for third place. It was an exciting event with the thirty to qualify for the Tour Championship changing many times during the final day. Our top ranked player, Tiger Woods, finished in tied 11th and we had ten of the top eighteen plus ties (10/22).

*Due to non-starters/non-finishers, De La Riva gets promoted to the top 21 in the GP rankings.
