2016 - Week 36 Winners

Joost Luiten (ranked 6th by Golf Predictor) won the KLM Open on the European PGA Tour. The 30 year old Dutchman delighted the home crowd by winning his home open for the second time with a great final day performance. Luiten finished with a near flawless 63 (-8) in front of a large crowd to secure his his fifth tour title. Our top ranked player, Alex Noren, finished in tied 34th, but we had eight of the top sixteen plus ties (8/19*).

Dustin Johnson (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won the third event of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the BMW Championship. The 32 year old American continued his great 2016 form by winning his third big title of the year. It was another impressive display by Johnson, who set a scoring record of -23 in holding off Paul Casey to win by three shots. Our top ranked player, Jason Day, had to withdraw halfway through the final round with a bad back. Overall, we had ten of the top seventeen plus ties (10/19**).

*Due to withdrawals, Fleetwood is promoted to the top nineteen in the GP rankings.
**Due to Day's withdrawal, Snedeker is promoted to the top nineteen in the GP rankings.
