2016 - Week 42 Winners

Hideki Matsuyama (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the WGC - HSBC Champions on the European/US PGA Tour. The 24 year old became the first Japanese winner of a WGC title with a dominating performance in Shanghai. Matsuyama kept his recent good form going by romping to a seven shot victory over a quality field. The Japanese sensation went bogey free on his final 45 holes, despite finding water on the seventy second hole! Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished strongly for tied 4th place and we had ten of the top sixteen plus ties (10/18) in total.

Cody Gribble (ranked 68th by Golf Predictor) won the Sanderson Farms Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 26 year old American became the first rookie winner in the new wraparound season, winning what was only his eighth event on the main tour. Gribble won in some style, playing some incredible golf down the stretch to win by four shots on -20. Our top ranked player, Chris Kirk, finished in tied 2nd and we had only eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/22) in an event that is traditionally hard to call.
