2016 - Week 40 Winners

Alex Noren (ranked 1st* by Golf Predictor) won the British Masters supp. by Sky Sports on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old Swede continued his impressive form by claiming his third title of the season at The Grove. After a great start, Noren faltered around the turn and let the chasing pack back into contention. However, he was able to steady the ship and finished strongly with a closing birdie to win by two shots. Noren was our top ranked player with the withdrawal of Danny Willett, and we had eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/21).

Brendan Steele (ranked 20th by Golf Predictor) won the Safeway Open on the US PGA Tour. The 33 year old American won his second tour title by a single shot from Patton Kizzire. Steele, who let victory slip here last year with a poor final round, redeemed himself with a strong three birdie finish which set a target Kizzire just could not match. Our top ranked player, Paul Casey, finished in tied 3rd and in a tournament traditionally hard to predict, we had eight of the top twenty plus ties (8/21). 

*Our top ranked player, Danny Willett, pulled out, promoting Noren to the top rank.
