2013 - Week 40 Winners

David Lynn (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the Portugal Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 39 year old Englishman gave himself a fortieth birthday present a week early by securing his first tour title since 2004. Lynn stormed home in 63 (-8) to win his second title by one shot and make me very happy! I had tipped and backed him at 66/1 each way, but wasn't too optimistic after his poor third round! Our top ranked player, Matteo Manassero, missed the cut in disappointing fashion, but we had eleven of the top seventeen plus ties (11/21) in total. 

Jimmy Walker (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the Open on the US PGA Tour. The 34 year old American won his first tour title at the 188th attempt as overnight leader Brooks Koepka faded down the stretch. Our top ranked player, Hideki Matsuyana, finished in tied 3th and in a tournament traditionally hard to predict (due to the relatively poor field), we had only three of the top twelve plus ties (3/15).
