2015 - Week 42 Winners

Justin Rose (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the UBS Hong Kong Open on the European PGA Tour. The 35 year old Englishman won his eighth tour title in an exciting weekend battle with Lucas Bjerregaard. The duo pulled away from the field and traded birdies over the final two days. However, when nerves got to the young Dane on the back nine Sunday and he double bogeyed the fourteenth, there was only going to be one winner. Rose duly closed out to take the title by a single shot. Including the winner, we had only six of the top eighteen plus ties (6/23) in total. 

Smylie Kaufman (ranked 79th by Golf Predictor) won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the US PGA Tour. The 23 year old American became the latest rookie to secure his first tour title quickly with a brilliant final round of 61 (-10). After posting -16, Kaufman had an anxious wait of several hours, watching the leaders try to overtake him. However, his score held up and he won in only his fifth tour start. Our top ranked player, Rickie Fowler, finished in tied 25th and we had eight of the top sixteen plus ties (8/24), in an event where several rookies played very well.
