2015 - Week 29 Winners

Danny Willett (ranked 3rd by Golf Predictor) won the Omega European Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Englishman won his third tour title by holding off his young compatriot Matthew Fitzpatrick in the scenic Swiss mountains. The two Englishmen traded blows all day, but Willett managed to get his nose in front on the thirteenth with a birdie and kept his slender advantage until the end. Our top ranked player, Sergio Garcia, started slowly but finished strongly over the weekend to finish 6th. Overall, in an event where a lot of the bigger names failed to perform, we had only seven of the top sixteen plus ties (7/23) in total.

Jason Day (ranked 3rd by Golf Predictor) won the RBC Canadian Open on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old Australian won his fourth tour title in an exciting finish in Canada. Day got over his great disappointment in Scotland on Monday by going toe to toe down the stretch with Bubba Watson. Both players went on a late birdie binge, but Day prevailed by a single shot in the end after holing a great birdie putt on the final green. Bubba was our top ranked player and we had eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/21).
