2016 - Week 32 Winners

Justin Rose (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the Olympic Men's Golf Competition on the  European/US PGA Tour. The 36 year old Englishman became the first Olympic golf champion in 112 years by edging out Henrik Stenson on an exciting final day in Rio. The duo were neck and neck all day, but a birdie on the last by Rose and a sloppy bogey by Stenson saw the gold medal go to the Englishman. American Matt Kuchar finished strongly with a 63 (-8) to secure the bronze medal. Stenson was our top ranked player and we had thirteen of the top twenty (13/20).  

Ryan Moore (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the John Deere Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 33 year old American won his fifth tour title by keeping mistakes to a minimum at damp TPC Deere Run. Leading by one overnight, Moore was never seriously threatened during the final round and closed out a two shot victory over Ben Martin. Moore played the last 46 holes bogey free and only had two for the entire tournament. Our top ranked player, course specialist Zach Johnson, fell back to tied 34th after a good opening round. In the weather affected event where most of the bigger names didn't perform, we had only four of the top sixteen plus ties (4/21).
