2014 - Week 22 Winners

Thongchai Jaidee (ranked 8th by Golf Predictor) won the Nordea Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 44 year old Thai golfer won his sixth tour title in a three way play-off against Victor Dubuisson and Stephen Gallacher. Trailing by four shots after the third round, Jaidee shot 65 to set the clubhouse target of -16. When that was matched by Dubuisson and Gallacher, Jaidee took the title with a birdie on the first extra hole after a fine approach shot to three feet. Our top ranked player, Henrik Stenson, finished in 5th and we had six of the top fifteen plus ties (6/17)

Hideki Matsuyama (ranked 17th by Golf Predictor) won the Memorial Tournament pres. by Nationwide Insurance on the US PGA Tour. The 22 year old Japanese golfer won his first tour title in a play-off against Kevin Na at Muirfield Village. In a strange final day, where no one seemed to want to win, Na almost backed into the title before Matsuyama conjured up an impressive closing birdie to force the play-off. Neither golfer covered himself in glory on the first extra hole, but Matsuyama somehow managed to par it to take the title after Na found water off the tee. Our top ranked player, Adam Scott, finished in tied 4th and we had nine of the top fifteen plus ties (9/18).
