2015 - Week 19 Winners

James Morrison (ranked 57th by Golf Predictor) won the Open de Espana on the European PGA Tour. The 30 year old Englishman finally won his second tour title five years after his first with a closing 70. Morrison was never in any real danger on the last day with his nearest challenger David Howell falling away around the turn and no one else applying serious pressure. That allowed the Englishman to par in on the back nine until he finished in style, with a birdie at the last for a four shot victory. Our top ranked player, Sergio Garcia, rallied after a poor start to finish in tied 22nd and we had eight of the top fifteen plus ties (8/21).

Rory McIlroy (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Wells Fargo Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 26 year old world number one was dominant over the weekend, blowing away the field and winning on a record score of -21. McIlroy bettered his own course record by one shot on Saturday with a sparkling 61 (-11) to lead by four overnight. That allowed him to cruise to victory on the final day, winning by seven shots in the end. Including the winner, we had ten of the top twenty plus ties (10/27) in total.
