2014 - Week 32 Winner

Rory McIlroy (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the US PGA Championship on the European/US PGA Tour. The 25 year old Northern Irishman won his second successful major title with a gutsy final day performance, coming back from losing the lead on the front nine to win by a shot over Phil Mickelson. It wasn't vintage McIlroy over the weekend, but he still drove the ball exceedingly well and showed heart after falling three strokes behind at the turn. However, a brilliant eagle on the tenth put him right back in the frame and he kicked on from there to secure his fourth major. It was another disappointing major for a clearly unfit Tiger Woods, who missed the cut. Our top ranked player, Adam Scott, finished in tied 15th and we had nine of the top fifteen plus ties (9/23) in total.
