2015 - Week 37 Winners

Rikard Karlberg (ranked 22nd by Golf Predictor) won the 72° Open D'Italia pres. by Damiani on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Swede won his maiden tour title with a play-off victory over long time leader Martin Kaymer. Karlberg holed a birdie putt on the second extra hole to leave Kaymer ruing his mini collapse on the back nine. Leading by three at one stage, the German hit a succession of poor short shots to come back to the bunched field. Kaymer was our top ranked player and we had eleven of the top twenty plus ties in total (11/24). 

Jason Day (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the third event of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the BMW Championship. The 27 year old Australian continued his brilliant recent form by winning yet again, this time by six shots in Chicago. After he opened with 61, there was only ever going to be one winner and Day eased to his fifth title of the season. In doing so, Day, our top ranked player, deservedly became world number one for the first time. Overall, we had ten of the top thirteen plus ties (10/18).
