2014 - Week 42 Winners

Thorbjorn Olesen (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the ISPS HANDA Perth International on the European PGA Tour. The 24 year old Dane won his second tour title with a comfortable win in Australia. On a day where European Tour cards were up for grabs, Olesen held his nerve after a mid round wobble to win by three shots. Our top ranked player, Victor D|ubuisson, finished in second place and we had six of the top fifteen plus ties (6/18) overall. 

Robert Streb (ranked 36th by Golf Predictor) won The McGladrey Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old American came from behind to win his first PGA Tour title in a three man play-off  with Will MacKenzie and Brendan de Jonge. After Streb stormed home with 63 to set the clubhouse target, he played solid golf to pip de Jonge with a short range birdie at the second extra hole. After tipping him and backing him at 66/1 each way (thanks to the new Performance Likelihood metric), it was a good week for me too! Our top ranked player, Matt Kuchar, finished in tied 22nd and we had only five of the top seventeen plus ties (5/21) overall.
