2016 - Week 21 Winners

Chris Wood (ranked 8th by Golf Predictor) won the BMW PGA Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Englishman won his third tour title thanks to a blistering front nine on Sunday at Wentworth. Wood went out in 29 to go four shots clear at the tour, but he made his fans (including me, who had backed him at 50/1!) sweat by leaking shots down the stretch. However, he was able to play the par five last conservatively for a closing par to win by a single shot. Our top ranked player, Danny Willett, didn't have his A-game, but still finished third. Overall, we had seven of the top fifteen plus ties (7/21) on the testing Wentworth layout. 

Jordan Spieth (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational on the US PGA Tour. The 22 year old American rediscovered his game to win his eighth tour title by three shots. After struggling last week, Spieth gave another putting masterclass and threw in a brilliant scrambling performance to win his first tournament in his native Texas. Including the winner, we had eleven of the top seventeen plus ties (11/21).
