2016 - Week 18 Winners

Jeung-Hun Wang (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the Trophee Hassan II on the European PGA Tour. The 20 year old South Korean won his first tour title in only his thirteenth start on Tour, defeating Nacho Elvira in a play-off. Wang produced a miracle up and down on the first extra hole to deny Elvira, who had hit two fantastic shots to reach the par five last hole in two. The Spaniard's misery was complete when he found trouble of the tee on the next hole and Wang secured the title with his third birdie of the day on the eighteenth hole. On a wet final day on a difficult new course, only nine players finished under par for the tournament. Our top ranked player, Alexander Levy, finished in tied 34th and we had only four of the top sixteen plus ties (4/21) in the difficult conditions.

James Hahn (ranked 130th by Golf Predictor) won the Wells Fargo Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 34 year old American overcame a streak of eight missed cuts in a row to capture his second tour title. Hahn beat Roberto Castro on the first extra hole after both had finished on -9. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished strongly for tied 4th, but was too inconsistent yet again. Overall, we had seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/23) in total on the tough Quail Hollow layout.
