2015 - Week 7 Winners

Anirbar Lahiri (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Hero Indian Open on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Indian won his home open at the first hole of a sudden death play-off with S.S.P. Chowrasia. Lahiri came from seven shots back to secure his second tour title just two weeks after his maiden success. In an almost farcical final day, Lahiri was one of the few competitors not to collapse on the back nine on the tricky narrow layout in windier conditions. Including the winner, we had only seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/23) in an event with a poor field.

James Hahn (ranked 58th by Golf Predictor) won the Northern Trust Open title on the US PGA Tour. The 33 year old American won his first tournament in a sudden death play-off with Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey. The former shoe salesman won at the third extra hole when he birdied from twenty five feet and Johnson failed to match him from ten feet closer in. Like the Indian event, the weather turned somewhat on Sunday and many in contention fell away in the rain. Our top ranked player, Bubba Watson, finished in tied 14th and we had nine of the top twenty plus ties (9/21).
