2018 - Week 17 Winner

Alexander Bjork (ranked 6th by Golf Predictor) won the Volvo China Open on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Swede won his first tour title with an impressive final day performance in Beijing. Bjork closed with a blemish free 65 (-7) to post a -18 target in the clubhouse. Adrian Otaegui had a chance to catch him, but a poor bogey on the penultimate hole meant both he and Matt Wallace needed an unlikely eagle on the par five closing hole to force a play-off. That proved to be too great a task for the duo and the Swede was duly crowned champion. Our top ranked player, defending champion Alexander Levy, finished in tied 14th, and we had six of the top fourteen plus ties (6/19).
The Zurich Classic of New Orleans on the US PGA Tour was not covered this year due to its transition to a team event. Unfortunately, this makes it unsuitable for Golf Predictor.
