2016 - Week 15 Winners

Andrew Johnston (ranked 54th by Golf Predictor) won the Real Club Valderrama Open de Espana on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Englishman won his maiden tour title with a one shot victory over Joost Luiten on the demanding Valderrama layout. Johnson (+1) became the first golfer with an over par winning score in a regular European tour event in 20 years as the weather and the course made scoring difficult. Our top ranked player, tournament host Sergio Garcia, rallied after a poor start to finish in third place and we had twelve of the top nineteen plus ties (12/25).

Branden Grace (ranked 6th by Golf Predictor) won the RBC Heritage on the US PGA Tour. The 27 year old South African won his his first tour title with an impressive final day performance on the testing Harbour Town layout. Grace finished with a fine 66 (-5) to win by two over British duo Russell Knox and Luke Donald. Our top ranked player, Jason Day, rebounded from a disastrous Saturday performance to finish tied 23rd. Overall, we had only seven of the top fourteen plus ties (7/22) in the tricky conditions.
