2017 - Week 6 Winners

Fabrizio Zanotti (ranked 58th by Golf Predictor) won the Maybank Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 33 year old Paraguayan  won his second tour title with a fantastic finish in Malaysia. Trailing by six shots overnight, Zanotti closed with a 63 (-9) that included a birdie-eagle finish to pip David Lipsky by a single shot. Our top ranked player, Danny Willett, led by three overnight, but faded Sunday to finish tied 5th. In an an event where many of the bigger names did not perform, we had only six of the top twelve plus ties (6/19) in this new tournament.

Jordan Spieth (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on the US PGA Tour. The 23 year old American cruised to his ninth tour on the scenic Pacific layout. Leading by six shots overnight, Spieth wasn't put under any real pressure and reeled off a long succession of pars along with two birdies to win by four shots. Our top ranked player, Jason Day, had a mixed weekend, but finished well on Sunday for tied fifth. Overall, we had nine of the top fourteen plus ties (9/22).
