2017 - Week 37 Winners

Romain Wattel (ranked 61st by Golf Predictor) won the KLM Open on the European PGA Tour. The 26 year old Frenchman overcame some poor recent form to land his maiden tour title. Wattel, who played steady golf on Sunday, was helped somewhat by overnight leader Aphibarnrat, who double bogeyed two of the last four holes to finish three shots behind. Our top ranked player, Bernd Wiesberger, finished in tied 9th and in an event where many of the bigger names failed to perform, we had only three of the top nine plus ties (3/13).

Marc Leishman (ranked 20th by Golf Predictor) won the third event of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the BMW Championship. The 33 year old Australian won his third tour title with an impressive wire to wire victory at Conway Farms. Leading by five overnight, Leishman was put under some pressure by Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler before steadying the ship and preserving his lead in the end. After a lacklustre opening three days, our top ranked player, Dustin Johnson, finished strongly with a 64 (-7) for tied 33rd. Overall, we had twelve of the top twenty plus ties (12/26).
