2014 - Week 27 Winners

Graeme McDowell (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the Alstom Open de France on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old Northern Irish man won his tenth tour title from eight shots behind in difficult conditions on the tough Le Golf National layout. In doing so, McDowell defended a European title for the first time and gave his Ryder Cup hopes a huge boost. He can thank Kevin Stadler though, as the American squandered a four shot overnight lead with a wretched front nine of 41 (+5). Even though he fought back gamely on the back nine, Stadler missed a tiddler on the last to hand GMac the victory. Our top ranked player, Martin Kaymer, finished in tied 12th place and we had ten of the top eighteen plus ties (10/25) in total.

Angel Cabrera (ranked 29th by Golf Predictor) won the Greenbrier Classic on the US PGA Tour. The big hitting 44 year old Argentinian secured his first tour title since the 2009 Masters with an assured final day display. Cabrera could even afford two late bogeys in his final round 64 (-6) and still win his first non-major title in the US by two shots. Our top ranked player, Bubba Watson, finished in tied 16th place and in an event that tends to be hard to predict, we had a disappointing five of the top sixteen plus ties (5/22) in total.
