2018 - Week 27 Winners

Russell Knox (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory Foundation on the European PGA Tour. The 33 year old Scot built on recent good form to come from behind and claim his second tour title. Trailing by six shots overnight, Knox finished strongly with a thirty five foot birdie on the last that was good enough for a play-off after Ryan Fox missed a short birdie putt on the same hole. Then, unbelievably in the play-off, history repeated itself as Knox holed for another birdie from almost the same spot and Fox missed again from a similar distance to before! Our top ranked player, defending champion Jon Rahm, finished in tied 4th after a bad start and a great finish on Sunday. Overall, we had ten of the top nineteen plus ties (10/23) in the latest Rolex Series event. 

Kevin Na (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier on the US PGA Tour. The 34 year old American finally won his second tour title after almost seven years of waiting with a great final round at Old White TPC. Na won in style with a great display of putting on Sunday to pull away and win by five shots in the end. Our top ranked player, Bubba Watson, finished poorly on Sunday for tied 13th and in an event where a lot of the bigger names failed to shine, we had eight of the top twenty one plus ties (8/25) in total.
