2015 - Week 9 Winners

Dustin Johnson (ranked 15th  by Golf Predictor) won the WGC - Cadillac Championship on the European/US PGA Tour. The 30 year old American won his ninth tour title and capped his comeback from personal issues with a fantastic final day performance. Starting five shots behind J.B. Holmes, Johnson also had to reel in the fast starting Bubba Watson to win the battle of the bombers on the testing long layout. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished in tied 9th, despite seemingly not playing well at all. Overall, we had nine of the top seventeen plus ties (9/22).

Trevor Fisher Jr (ranked 18th by Golf Predictor) won the Africa Open on the European PGA Tour. The 35 year old became the latest South African to win the event, the first of his career on tour. Fisher did it in style, finishing with 63 and 64 over the weekend to come through the field and win by five shots. Our top ranked player, Andy Sullivan, hadn't got over last week's win and missed the cut. Overall, we had only three of the top eighteen plus ties (3/23) in the event that that a weak field and windy conditions.

Alex Cejka (ranked 33rd by Golf Predictor) won the Puerto Rico Open pres. by on the US PGA Tour. The 44 year old German/Czech finally won his first tour title in windy Puerto Rico in a five man play-off. Cejka won with a birdie at the first extra hole, defeating Jon Curran, Sam Saunders, Emiliano Grillo and Tim Petrovic. Our top ranked player, Brendon de Jonge, finished in tied 10th and in this usually difficult to predict event, we had seven of the top sixteen plus ties (7/21).
