2014 - Week 40 Winners

Alexander Levy (ranked 21st by Golf Predictor) won the Portugal Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 24 year old Frenchman won his second title of the season and his career in soggy Vilamoura. After storming to a record equalling -18 after two rounds, Levy only hit four shots over the weekend before the event was finally cut to 54 holes and he was deemed the winner. Our top ranked player, Francesco Molinari, was deemed to have missed the cut and we had seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/20*) in total in the rain affected event. 

Sang-Moon Bae (ranked 80th by Golf Predictor) won the Open on the US PGA Tour. The 28 year old South Korean won his second tour title, despite a nervy final day performance. However, the lead Bae had built up over the first three rounds proved to be sufficient in the end as no one made a real run at him. Our top ranked player, Matt Kuchar, finished poorly on Sunday for tied 21st and in a tournament traditionally hard to predict (usually due to the relatively poor field and this year with a new course), we had only four of the top twelve plus ties (4/16). 

*Ramsay withdrew, thus promoting Levy into the top twenty of the GP rankings.

Had incorrectly stated that Bae was ranked 9th by GP, when 80th was the correct GP ranking. Sorry for that copy and paste error!
