2015 - Week 43 Winners

Victor Dubuisson (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the Turkish Airlines Open on the European PGA Tour. The 25 year old Frenchman won his first title since winning his maiden title here two years ago. The normally impassive Dubuisson became very emotional after two putting the par five finishing hole for the winning birdie. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished in tied 6th, despite not really firing on all cylinders. Overall, we had nine of the top eighteen plus ties (9/19).

Justin Thomas (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the CIMB Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 22 year old American finally won his first tour title, winning by a single shot from a charging Adam Scott. Thomas made it hard on himself, double bogeying the fourteenth on Sunday and leaving himself a real tester for par on the last for the victory. However, he prevailed and became the third first time winner in a row on the 2015/16 US PGA Tour. Our top ranked player, Henrik Stenson, finished in tied 47th and we had ten of the top seventeen plus ties (10/20*). 

*Lee withdrew, promoting Summerhays into the top twenty of the GP rankings.
