2014 - Week 41 Winners

Scott Hend (ranked 21st by Golf Predictor) won the Hong Kong Open on the European PGA Tour. The 41 year old Australian won his first tour title on the first hole of a play-off with the colourful Angelo Que. Having had to conjure up a sand save on the final regulation hole from a plugged lie, Hend took the title after Que failed to get up and down for par from just off the green on the first play-off hole. Our top ranked player, Miguel Angel Jimenez, was ill apparently and missed the cut, and we had only five of the top fifteen plus ties (5/20) in total. 

Mikko Ilonen (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the Volvo World Match Play Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old Finn won his second title of the season with a 3&1 victory over the more fancied Henrik Stenson. Golf Predictor isn't designed for match play events, but as the annual joke goes, we had sixteen of the top sixteen!!

Ben Martin (ranked 75th by Golf Predictor) won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old American won his first tour title with a late flourish of an eagle on sixteen and a closing birdie. Our top ranked player, Billy Horschel, saw his recent hot streak come to an abrupt end as he missed the cut. Overall, we had thirteen of the top eighteen plus ties (13/27)*.

*With withdrawals and no shows, Bohn makes top 27 in GP rankings.
