2017 - Week 4 Winners

Jeung-Hun Wang (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 21 year old South Korean won his third title in less than a year with a play-off victory over Jaco van Zyl and Joakim Lagergren in Qatar. Despite losing his overnight three shot lead and leaving his birdie putt agonisingly short on the final hole in regulation, Wang wasn't to be denied. He regrouped to take the title at the first extra hole after both his opponents narrowly missed their birdie putts. Our top ranked player, Alex Noren, finished in tied 21st and we had fourteen of the top twenty one plus ties (14/27*).

Jon Rahm (ranked 34th by Golf Predictor) won the Farmers Insurance Open on the US PGA Tour. The promising 22 year old Spaniard won his first tour title with an incredible finish at Torrey Pines. Rahm broke free of a logjam with a birdie on seventeen and an incredible eagle at the last to win by two shots. In fact, Rahm had two eagles in his closing six holes for a closing 65 to win in style. Our top ranked player, Jason Day, was one of the several big names (including Tiger Woods on his proper return to the tour) to miss the cut. Overall, we had ten of the top twenty plus ties (10/27) in total.

*Canizares withdrew, promoting Campillo into the top 27 of the GP rankings.
