2015 - Week 12 Winners

Richie Ramsay (ranked 16th by Golf Predictor) won the Trophee Hassan II on the European PGA Tour. The 31 year old Scot broke out from a packed leaderboard, but had to overcame a treble bogey on the front nine to win his third tour title. Ramsay won by a single shot from Romain Wattel, who just came up short, failing to birdie the difficult final hole to force extra holes. Our top ranked player, Ross Fisher, missed the cut and we had seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/23).

Jimmy Walker (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the Valero Texas Open on the US PGA Tour. The 36 year old American won his fifth tour title at a canter in his home town. Walker lead by four shots overnight and was never in any real danger on the final day, despite a valiant effort by fellow Texan Jordan Spieth on the back nine. Our top ranked player, Jim Furyk, was one of many who struggled in the high winds on Thursday and finished in tied 58th. Overall, we had twelve of the top twenty plus ties (12/25)* in total.

*GMac retired with an injury, promoting Charley Hoffman into the top 25 of the GP rankings
