2015 - Week 11 Winner

Matt Every (ranked 62nd by Golf Predictor) won the Arnold Palmer Invitational pres. by Mastercard on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old American successfully defended his title after his nearest challengers Henrik Stenson and Morgan Hoffman faltered down the stretch. While Every finished strongly, sinking the winning birdie putt on the last, both Stenson and Hoffman frittered away shots coming down the stretch. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished his competitive preparation for Augusta with another lacklustre performance by his own high standards. He still managed to finish tied 11th, despite not hitting anything like top gear. Overall, we had only six of the top seventeen plus ties (6/17) in an event where many of the bigger names failed to perform.

The Madeira Islands Open - Portugal - BPI on the European PGA Tour was abandoned due to to inclement weather. The tournament was beset by high winds, heavy rain and thick fog, culminating in the difficult decision to cancel it after flooding made the course unplayable. Talks have started to possibly reschedule it for later in the year, but all scores for the completed first round have been deemed null and void.
