2015 - Week 6 Winners

Andrew Dodt (ranked 53rd by Golf Predictor) won the inaugural True Thailand Classic pres. by Black Mountain on the European PGA Tour. The 29 year old Australian won his second tour title five years after his first. Dodt hadn't registered a top ten since that 2010 victory in India and indeed had to go to Qualifying School in November to regain his card. However, a bogey free final round and mistakes from his nearest challengers saw the Australian to his unexpected win. Home favourite and our top ranked player, Thongchai Jaidee, will rue a double bogey on thirteen and failing to two putt the par five last. He finished one shot back in tied second place with the big hitting Scott Hend. Overall, we had eight of the top twenty one plus ties (8/24*) in this new event with a relatively poor field.

Brandt Snedeker (ranked 15th by Golf Predictor) won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the US PGA Tour. The 34 year old American won his seventh tour title with an assured final day performance. It was the second win in three years at Pebble Beach for an emotional Snedeker, who has now put a disappointing eighteen months on the PGA Tour behind him. It was another tough finishing day for Jim Furyk, who failed to convert yet another fifty four hole lead. Our top ranked player, Jason Day, finished in tied 4th and overall, we had only seven of the top eighteen plus ties (7/20).

*Withdrawals/none finishes promote Aphibarnrat to top 24 in GP rankings.
