2018 - Week 22 Winners

Thorbjorn Olesen (ranked 45th by Golf Predictor) won the Italian Open on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Dane overcame some indifferent recent form to secure his fifth tour title in Italy. On a week of hot scoring, Olesen held off home favourite and winner from last week Francesco Molinari to win by a single shot. He was made to sweat for it, after a brilliant closing birdie by Molinari and getting out of position off the final tee. However, the Dane kept his composure and got up and down from a greenside bunker to take the title. Our top ranked player, Tommy Fleetwood, finished in tied 23rd and we had eight of the top nineteen plus ties (8/20)

Bryson Dechambeau (ranked 26th by Golf Predictor) won the Memorial Tournament pres. by Nationwide on the US PGA Tour. The 24 year old American won his second tour title in a play-off with Byeong-hun An and Kyle Stanley. Despite hitting just five fairways and bogeying the final hole to fall into the three man play-off, Dechambeau prevailed at the second extra hole with a birdie to see off An and secure the title at Jack's place. Our top ranked player, Justin Rose, finished tied 6th and we had eleven of the top thirteen plus ties (11/22) in this event.
