2015 - Week 35 Winners

Lee Slattery (ranked 21st by Golf Predictor) won the M2M Russian Open on the European PGA Tour. The 37 year old Englishman won his second tour title with a one shot victory over Tano Goya. After trading the lead with his Argentinian adversary on the final day, Horsey chipped in on the seventeenth for a birdie and held his nerve for a par on the last to seal his first victory in four years. Our top ranked player, defending champion David Horsey, finished in third and we had seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/21) in total in this weak fielded event. 

Rickie Fowler (ranked 11th by Golf Predictor) won the Deutsche Bank Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 26 year old American won his third event of the year with a one shot win over Henrik Stenson. While the Swede looked comfortable in the lead for most of the day, Fowler reeled him in and overtook him on the sixteenth after Stenson found the water and double bogeyed. The formerly overrated Fowler held on impressively on the final two holes to land another big title! Our top ranked player, Jason Day, finished in tied 12th and in an event where many of the bigger names did not perform, we had only six of the top twelve plus ties (6/21).
