2014 - Week 31 Winners

Rory McIlroy (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational on the European/US PGA Tour. The 25 year old Northern Irishman continued his recent great form by coming from three shots back to win his first WGC title. In his first event since winning the Open Championship, McIlroy put on a driving exhibition, using his long and straight tee shots as a platform to overtake Sergio Garcia. Tiger Woods once again withdrew from a tournament with an injury, having hurt his back early in the final round. Our top ranked player, Adam Scott, finished in tied 8th and we had twelve of the top fifteen plus ties (12/17)* in total.

Geoff Ogilvy (ranked 25th by Golf Predictor) won the Barracuda Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 37 year old Australian secured his first tour win in four years with a five point win over Justin Hicks in the modified Stableford event. Our top ranked player, George Coetzee, finished in tied 17th and we had only five of the top seventeen plus ties (5/20) in the second tier event. 

*The withdrawals of Tiger Woods and Jason Day promote Matsuyama and Moore into the top 18 of the GP rankings.
