2015 - Week 44 Winners

Russell Knox (ranked 48th by Golf Predictor) won the WGC - HSBC Champions on the European/US PGA Tour. The 30 year old Scot finally won his first tour title with an assured final day performance in Shanghai. Knox was never really threatened on the back nine and was able to close out a two shot victory, in what was a great performance by a last minute reserve into the tournament, his very first WGC event. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished in tied 11th place, despite food poisoning and lacklustre play by his high standards. Overall, we had eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/18) in total.

Peter Malnati (ranked 79th by Golf Predictor) won the Sanderson Farms Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 28 year old American became the latest first time winner in the new wraparound season, winning by a shot, courtesy of an impressive long distance two putt par at the last under pressure. After torrential rain flooded the course, play had to be extended to Monday to complete the 72 holes. All the delays didn't faze Malnati however, who finished with 67 (-5) and endured a short wait while his pursuers failed to catch him. Our top ranked player, Jason Bohn, finished in tied 39th and we had only five of the top fourteen plus ties (5/19) in the weather plagued event.
