2014 - Week 43 Winners

Marcel Siem (ranked 29th by Golf Predictor) won the BMW Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old German won his fourth tour event in a play-off on a windy final day in Shanghai. Siem chipped in for birdie at the first extra hole to defeat Alexander Levy and Ross Fisher, who both missed makable putts to prolong the fight. Levy in particular will be disappointed having let a four shot overnight lead slip and slumping to a final day 78. Our top ranked player, Justin Rose, overcame a poor start to finish in tied 4th and we had seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/20) in total. 

Ryan Moore (ranked 16th by Golf Predictor) won the CIMB Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old American successfully defended his title, winning by three shots from Kevin Na, Sergio Garcia and last year's runner up Gary Woodland. Moore was helped in no small measure by Na (my betting tip!), who lost a ball on the penultimate hole to drop two shots. Our top ranked player, Sergio Garcia, finished in tied second and we had nine of the top nineteen plus ties (9/19).
