2015 - Week 25 Winners

Pablo Larrazabal (ranked 31st by Golf Predictor) won the BMW International Open on the European PGA Tour. The 32 year old Spaniard won his fourth tour title with a final day 66 (-6) to pip clubhouse leader Henrik Stenson by a shot. The 2011 champion Larrazabal started quickly with 31 on the front nine and played tidily on the back nine to give himself a great wedding present two months early! Stenson was our top ranked player and despite the perfect conditions a lot of the bigger names failed to perform. Overall, we had only five of the top seventeen plus ties (5/19) in total

Bubba Watson (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Travelers Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 36 year old American also started quickly and also won the event for a second time. However, Bubba had to dig deep on the back nine and eventually hole a three foot putt on the last to force a play-off with Paul Casey. After both shot par at the first extra hole, Watson took the title with a birdie on the second after Casey made a complete mess of a bunker shot. Including the winner, we had only five of the top eighteen plus ties (5/19)* as the US Open hangover affected the bigger names here too.

*Knox withdrew, thus promoting Donald to the top nineteen in the GP Ranking.
