2017 - Week 49 Winner

Shubhankar Sharma (ranked 40th by Golf Predictor) won the Joburg Open on the European PGA Tour. The 21 year old Indian won his first tour title with an impressive display in Johannesburg. Despite having to sit on a final round lead for two nights, sue to severe storms necessitating a Monday finish, Sharma showed great maturity to hold off a charging Erik van Rooyen for the win. In a profitable first visit to South Africa, Sharma also made me very happy as I had backed/tipped him at 100/1! Our top ranked player, Dylan Frittelli, finished in tied 42nd and we had nine of the top nineteen plus ties (9/26) in this event with a large, poor field and difficult weather conditions!

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