2016 - Week 33 Winners

Paul Peterson (ranked 65th by Golf Predictor) won the D+D REAL Czech Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old American left-hander won his maiden tour title by a single shot over defending champion Thomas Pieters. The top two were neck and neck on the final day, but Peterson took the title in style with a long birdie putt on the par four last after Pieters had hit in close in two. Our top ranked player, Andy Sullivan, had a disappointing week while trying to cement his Ryder Cup place and missed the cut. Overall, in an event where many of the bigger names didn't perform, we had only eight of the top nineteen plus ties (8/26) in total. 

Si-Woo Kim (ranked 41st by Golf Predictor) won the Wyndham Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 21 year old South Korean won his maiden title with an impressive display at Sedgefield Country Club. After just missing out on a magical 59 on Friday, Kim showed great composure over the weekend and capped his performance with a closing birdie for a five shot winning margin over Luke Donald. Our top ranked player, Patrick Reed, finished in tied 22nd and we had thirteen of the top twenty two plus ties (13/32) in total.
