2016 - Week 27 Winner

Alexander Noren (ranked 31st by Golf Predictor) won the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open on the European PGA Tour. The 33 year old Swede won his fifth tour title at blustery Castle Stuart. Noren took a two shot lead into Sunday and although he was caught briefly around the turn, he pulled away again on the back nine and won by a shot over Tyrrell Hatton. It was a profitable closing birdie for Hatton, as it earned him almost €300,000 extra! Our top ranked player, Henrik Stenson, finished tied 13th. Overall, we only had eight of the top thirteen plus ties (8/20*) in the wind affected event.   

The Greenbrier Classic was cancelled on the US PGA Tour, due to the dreadful flooding in West Virginia.

*Chris Wood withdrew, thereby promoting Colsaerts into the top 20 of the GP Rankings.
