2016 - Week 47 Winner

Sam Brazel (ranked 77th by Golf Predictor) won the UBS Hong Kong Open on the European PGA Tour. The 37 year old Australian finally won his first tour title in an exciting finish in Hong Kong. At one point, there were six tied for the lead on the back nine and although Brazel pulled away, he was caught by long time leader Rafa Cabrera Bello after the Spaniard birdied the sixteenth and seventeenth holes. However, the Australian was not to be denied, as he hit his second shot close (with a slight mis-hit, as he admitted afterwards!) on the last to set up the winning birdie. Our top ranked player, Patrick Reed, didn't really feature and finished in T43rd. Overall, we had ten of the top fourteen plus ties (10/24) in total. 

There was no event on the US PGA Tour this week.
