2015 - Week 4 Winners

Rory McIlroy (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on the European PGA Tour. The 25 year old world number one didn't let the impending court proceedings against his former agent affect him as he turned in a dominating display to win by three shots at a canter. In doing so, McIlroy kept his amazing recent streak of top two finishes on the European Tour going (now 1st, 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 2nd and 1st). Overall, including the winner, we had nine of the top thirteen (9/19) in total.

Brooks Koepka (ranked 21st by Golf Predictor) won the Waste Management Phoenix Open on the US PGA Tour. While all eyes for the first two days were on the abject Tiger Woods, who finished tied last after a sorry display, Koepka took the limelight on the final day with an impressive performance on the last nine. The 24 year old American, who cut his teeth on the European tour, drove fantastically and hit all the greens in regulation coming home to win won his first tournament on the PGA Tour. Our top ranked player, Bubba Watson, just came up short again this year and finished tied 2nd. Overall, we had nine of the top seventeen plus ties (9/21).
