2015 - Week 28 Winners

Zach Johnson (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won The Open Championship on the European/US PGA Tour. The 39 year old American won his second major at the weather delayed event on the hallowed turf of St Andrews. Johnson came from three shots back on the final day to win a three man play-off with Marc Leishman and 2010 champion Louis Oosthuizen. Johnson birdied the first two holes of the four hole play-off and held on to win by a shot when Oosthuizen failed to birdie the last hole. Our top ranked player, Jordan Spieth, finished agonisingly just one shot back in tied 4th place in his bid for the third leg of the grand slam. Overall, we had nine of the top eighteen plus ties (9/19) in the weather affected tournament. 

Scott Piercy (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the inaugural Barbasol Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 36 year old American won his third tour title with an assured final day performance, hitting seventeen greens in his closing round of 65 (-6). Coming off elbow surgery last year, Piercy was naturally delighted to get back into the winner's circle after beginning the season on a major medical extension. Our top ranked player, Emiliano Grillo, finished in tied 10th and we had eight of the top nineteen plus ties (8/22) in total in this second tier event.
