2014 - Week 26 Winners

Fabrizio Zanotti (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the BMW International Open on the European PGA Tour. The 31 year old Paraguayan won his his first tour title in a four man play-off. After seeing off Rafa Cabrera Bello and Gregory Havret, Zanotti prevailed on the fifth extra hole when Henrik Stenson went into the water. In doing so, he became the first Paraguayan to win on the European tour. Local hero Kaymer disappointed on his triumphant return to home soil by missing the cut. Stenson was our top ranked player and we had ten of the top twelve plus ties (10/21) in total

Justin Rose (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won the Quicken Loans National on the US PGA Tour. The 33 year old Englishman overcame going into the water on the last to win on the first play-off hole when Shawn Stefani did likewise. Our top ranked player, Jason Day, disappointingly missed the cut and finished in tied 76th. Likewise, a rusty Tiger Woods also failed to make the weekend on his sooner than anticipated return to action at the event that benefits his foundation. Overall, we had nine of the top nineteen plus ties (9/20) in total.
