2017 - Week 46 Winners

John Rahm (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai on the European PGA Tour. The 23 year old Spanish Rookie of the Year capped a great d├ębut season with victory at the season ending event in Dubai. Rahm finished with a blemish free 67 to pip Kiradech Aphibarnrat and a fast finishing Shane Lowry to the lucrative title. Tommy Fleetwood secured the Race to Dubai title, despite stumbling home on Sunday. Luckily for him, nearest challenger Justin Rose, also faltered on the back nine after being imperious on the front nine. Rose was our top ranked player and still finished tied fourth in the end. Overall, we had fourteen of the top twenty one plus ties (14/23).

Austin Cook (ranked 59th by Golf Predictor) won The RSM Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 26 year old American rookie won his first PGA Tour title with an assured performance in Georgia. After hitting the front with a second round 62, Cook showed great maturity to hold off the field and win comfortably by four shots in the end. Our top ranked player, Matt Kuchar, finished in tied 29th and in an event that's usually hard to predict, we had only five of the top seventeen plus ties (5/21) overall.
