2015 - Week 46 Winners

Rory McIlroy (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai on the European PGA Tour. The 26 year old Northern Irishman won his first title since returning from injury with an impressive weekend performance in Dubai. In doing so, McIlroy sowed up the Race to Dubai for the third time in four years. He was pushed all the way for his fourth title of the year by Andy Sullivan. However, despite holding a three shot lead early in the final round, the Englishman was overpowered by McIlroy, who drove the ball imperiously over the weekend. After a lapse in concentration on the penultimate hole, McIlroy saved a bogey with a crucial thirty foot putt and held on to win by a single shot. Including the winner, we had twelve of the top seventeen plus ties (12/21) 

Kevin Kisner (ranked 3rd by Golf Predictor) won The RSM Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old American became the latest to win his first PGA Tour title with an emphatic victory in Georgia. After a series of near misses, including three play-off defeats, Kisner finally got over the line in some style. After taking a three shot lead into the final round, he came out firing and led by seven at the turn. That allowed him to coast home and win by six shots in the end. Our top ranked player, Matt Kuchar, finished in tied 25th and in an event that's usually hard to predict, we had only four of the top nine plus ties (4/17) overall.
