2016 - Week 31 Winners

Anthony Wall (ranked 22nd by Golf Predictor) won the Aberdeen Asset Management Paul Lawrie Match Play on the European PGA Tour. The 41 year old Englishman finally won his second tour title with a one hole victory over Alex Noren. Despite playing against a man in great form, Wall overcame the loss of the opening two holes on a very windy final day to win for the first time in over sixteen years. Our top ranked player, Chris Wood, lost at the last sixteen stage in the restricted field match play event.

Russell Knox (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Travelers Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old Scot also won for a second time in both his career and on the 2015/16 PGA Tour season with a one shot victory over Jerry Kelly. On a strange day dominated by the historic 58 (-12) by Jim Furyk, Knox proved to be player who tried not to win the least! He still needed a clutch twelve foot putt at the last for a winning sand save, though. Our top ranked player, the defending champion Bubba Watson, finished in tied 25th and we had twelve of the top seventeen plus ties (12/24) in total.
