2018 - Week 21 Winners

Francesco Molinari (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the BMW PGA Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 35 year old Italian won his fifth tour title with an impressive performance at Wentworth. After several close calls in the flagship tournament in recent years, Molinari finally sealed the deal with a blemish free weekend to win by two strokes. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, played imperiously on the first two days, but stalled big time on the weekend. However, the Northern Irishman still finished second with his C game on the weekend. Overall, we had thirteen of the top twenty plus ties (13/26) on the testing Wentworth layout. 

Justin Rose (ranked 3rd by Golf Predictor) won the Fort Worth Invitational on the US PGA Tour. The 37 year old  Englishman won his second tour title of the season with an imperious display of ball striking in Texas. On a day of both hot temperatures and scoring, Rose and playing partner Brooks Koepka were among those who shot the lights out on Sunday. That meant Koepka couldn't really make much inroads into Rose's four shot overnight lead, losing by three strokes in the end. Our top ranked player, Jordan Spieth, never really fired and finished in tied 32nd. Overall, we had only six of the top fourteen plus ties (6/19).
