2017 - Week 3 Winners

Tommy Fleetwood (ranked 23rd by Golf Predictor) won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 26 year old Englishman won his second tour title with an impressive back nine performance in Abu Dhabi. After chipping in for eagle on the tenth, Fleetwood added three birdies, including a crucial one at the last, to post a score that his pursuers just could not match. Our top ranked golfer, Dustin Johnson, finished strongly with an eagle for tied second and we had twelve of the top nineteen plus ties (12/22) in total.

Hudson Swafford (ranked 42nd by Golf Predictor) won the CareerBuilder Challenge on the US PGA Tour. The 29 year old American finally won his first tour title, also with an impressive back nine on Sunday. Swafford broke free from a crowded leaderboard with three birdies in a row from the fifteenth, beating Mr 59 Adam Hadwin by a single shot. Our top ranked golfer, Patrick Reed, finished in tied 12th and in an event where most of the bigger names failed to perform, we had only five of the top seventeen plus ties (5/20) in total.
