2016 - Week 39 Winners

Tyrrell Hatton (ranked 20th by Golf Predictor) won the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 24 year old Englishman won his maiden tour title with an impressive display in Scotland. Leading by three overnight after a course record equalling 62 on the Old Course, a delighted Hatton played impeccably on Sunday and was never threatened. With a closing 66, he tied the tournament record score of -23 in a seemingly nerveless display. Our top ranked player, Danny Willett, missed the cut, but we had eleven of the top eighteen plus ties (11/24).

Brandt Snedeker (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the inaugural Fiji International on the European PGA Tour. The 35 year old American hot favourite won his first tour title with a comfortable victory in the South Pacific. Leading by three overnight, Snedeker continued his good play after last week's Ryder Cup and won by nine shots in the end. Despite the windy conditions, the American went 49 holes without a bogey at one stage during the tournament. Snedeker was our top ranked player and we had thirteen of the top twenty one plus ties (13/23).

There was no event on the US PGA Tour this week as it is the short close season.
