2018 - Week 6 Winners

Kiradech Aphibarnrat (ranked 14th by Golf Predictor) won the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Thai won his fourth tour title in Australia, defeating James Nitties 2&1 in the final of the  super 6 event. Aphibarnrat was the last man into the matchplay segment after a play-off for the last spot on Saturday and played the eighteenth hole an amazing fifteen times (including as the dead heat hole) during the event! Aphibarnrat was our top ranked player and we had only four of the top seventeen in the hot and breezy conditions.

Ted Potter Jr (ranked 92nd by Golf Predictor) won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on the US PGA Tour. The unfancied American saw off many big names on the scenic Pacific layout to secure his second tour title. After flirting with a 59 on Saturday, Potter was joint leader with world number one Dustin Johnson overnight. However, while DJ stalled on Sunday, Potter wasn't put under any real pressure on the back nine and reeled off a long succession of pars after four early birdies to win by three shots. DJ was our top ranked player, and  despite a poor final day by his standards, still finished in tied second. Overall, we had ten of the top twenty plus ties (10/25).
