2018 - Week 26 Winners

Alex Noren (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the HNA Open de France on the European PGA Tour. The 35 year old Swede won his tenth tour title with an impressive weekend performance in Paris. Noren closed with 65-67 on the tough 2018 Ryder Cup venue and came through the field and win from seven shots back. Of course, it helped his cause that all the contenders fell away at the end, most expensively Julian Suri, who doubled the last to lose by one. Our top ranked player, Justin Thomas, finished in tied eighth on his Ryder Cup reconnaissance  and we had fourteen of the top twenty one plus ties (14/26) on the testing layout.

Francesco Molinari (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the Quicken Loans National on the US PGA Tour. The 35 year old became the first Italian born player to win on tour in over 70 years with an incredible display of ball striking. Tied for the lead overnight, Molinari turned on the afterburners just after the turn and blew away the field with an golfing exhibition to win by eight shots in the end. Our top ranked player, Rickie Fowler, finished in 12th and we had eight of the top seventeen plus ties (8/22) in total.
