2017 - Week 47 Winner

Wade Ormsby (ranked 15th by Golf Predictor) won the UBS Hong Kong Open on the European PGA Tour. The 37 year old Australian finally won his first tour title in an error filled finish in China. As the field bunched down the stretch, thanks mainly to round one-three leader Chawrasia going backwards with a treble on the ninth, Ormsby pipped his competitors by a single shot. Alexander Bjork pulled his short par putt on the last to finish one back, Ormsby closed with a three putt bogey and Cabrera Bello hit a nervy short bunker shot and missed the putt to force a play-off. An emotional Ormsby didn't mind as he put his injury problems and trips to qualifying school behind him. Our top ranked golfer, Justin Rose, finished tied 10th and we had ten of the top nineteen plus ties (10/22) in total. 

There was no event on the US PGA Tour this week.
