2016 - Week 16 Winners

Soo-min Lee (ranked 31st by Golf Predictor) won the Shenzhen International on the European PGA Tour. The 22 year old South Korean won his first tour title with a two shot win over Joost Luiten and Brandon Stone. Despite throwing away a five shot lead earlier in the week, Lee bounced back in style to win in only his sixth start. In the leading pack with three holes to go, Lee birdied the sixteenth and made a terrific eagle on seventeen to exorcise the demons of Malaysia from two months ago. Our top ranked player, Bubba Watson, finished strongly again this year, closing with  a 66 (-6) for tied 8th. Overall, we had eleven of the top nineteen plus ties (11/23) in the weather affected event, which finished on Monday.

Charley Hoffman (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the Valero Texas Open on the US PGA Tour. The 39 year old American won his fourth tour title after a series of weekend capitulations in recent months. Hoffman improved on his impressive course record by getting up and down from a bunker at the last to beat Patrick Reed by a shot. Our top ranked player, Branden Grace, finished well for tied 9th and we had ten of the top twenty one plus ties (10/24) in total.
