2016 - Week 19 Winners

Jeung-Hun Wang (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open on the European PGA Tour. The 20 year old South Korean won his second tour title in a row in windy Mauritius. Fresh off his maiden win last week, Wang was the only man in the entire field who shot par or better for the four days. He still needed some help though from runner up, Siddikur Rahman, who dropped three shots late on to let the Korean back in it. Our top ranked player, Scott Hend, had a poor final day, but still finished tied 12th. Overall, we had twelve of the top eighteen plus ties (12/26) in the weak fielded event in difficult conditions.

Jason Day (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won The Players Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 28 year old Australian world number one grabbed his third title of the season with an impressive wire to wire victory at Sawgrass. After opening with a 3 (-9), Day proved to be most adept on the viciously fast greens and won by four strokes in the end. Including the winner, we had seven of the top nineteen plus ties (7/22) in an event where a lot of the bigger names floundered on the slick greens.
