2015 - Week 38 Winners

Thongchai Jaidee (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Porsche European Open on the European PGA Tour. The 45 year old Thai won his seventh tour title with an assured final day performance. Leading by one overnight, Jaidee traded the lead with Graeme Storm before finishing solidly to secure a one shot victory. However, he did need a good up and down on the final hole to secure his latest victory. Our top ranked player, Bernd Wiesberger, missed the cut, despite being joint leader after the opening round. Overall, we only had six of the top nineteen plus ties (6/23).

Jordan Spieth (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won The Tour Championship by Coca-Cola on the US PGA Tour. The 22 year old American capped a fantastic season by banking the FedEx Cup jackpot with his fifth title of the season. Spieth was locked in a head to head battle for the title and the FedEx Cup with Henrik Stenson, but pulled away around the turn with some great putting to win by four shots. Following his wins, including the two majors and now the FedEx Cup, Spieth must be a shoe in for the Player of the Year award. Our top ranked player (and only other contender in the POY award), Jason Day, finished tied 10th and we had fourteen of the top sixteen plus ties (14/17) in the restricted field event.
