2015 - Week 22 Winners

Alexander Noren (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Nordea Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 32 year old Swede delighted the home crowd by winning his fourth tour title and his second on home soil. The 2011 champion prevailed with an impressive final day performance in the difficult windy conditions. Leading overnight, Noren started out with a birdie and a bogey before parring every hole until the last. He then sealed the victory in style with a closing bogey for a comfortable four shot win. Our top ranked player, Henrik Stenson, finished in 13th and we had six of the top thirteen plus ties (6/20)

In a great day for Sweden, David Lingmerth (ranked 103rd by Golf Predictor) won the Memorial Tournament pres. by Nationwide Insurance on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old Swede won his maiden tour title in a play-off against Justin Rose at Muirfield Village. After both had finished on -15, the pair were inseparable after two visits to the tough eighteenth hole. However, the Swede prevailed on the third extra hole with a par after Rose hit spectators for the second time in an hour. It was another abject performance by former champion Tiger Woods, who slumped to a career worst 85 (+13) in round three and finished a whopping eight shots adrift of the field that made the cut. Our top ranked player, Justin Spieth, finished in tied 3rd after a great finish. Overall, we had eleven of the top eighteen plus ties (11/23).
