2015 - Week 45 Winners

Kristoffer Broberg (ranked 52nd by Golf Predictor) won the BMW Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 29 year old Swede won maiden title at the first hole of a play-off with Patrick Reed. After both players had left their birdie efforts just short on the eighteenth in regulation, Broberg made no mistake in the play-off, taking the title with a birdie on the same hole. The Swede was feted by compatriots Henrik Stenson, Rikard Karlberg and Alex Noren and was understandably emotional after his break through win. Our top ranked player, Justin Rose, finished in tied 7th and we had eleven of the top seventeen plus ties (11/21).

Graeme McDowell (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba on the US PGA Tour. The 36 year old Northern Irish man won his first tournament on the US PGA Tour in over two years with a gutsy Monday finish in Mexico. McDowell put a poor year behind him to hole a crucial par putt on the last and also win at the first extra hole. McDowell did it in style, almost holing his five iron approach in the play-off with Jason Bohn and last week's winner, Russell Knox. Our top ranked player, Matt Kuchar, finished in tied 68th and in an event plagued by weather delays and which is usually hard to predict, we only had eight of the top seventeen plus ties (8/24).
