2018 - Week 30 Winners

Richard McEvoy (ranked 32nd by Golf Predictor) won the Porsche European Open on the European PGA Tour. The 39 year old Englishman finally won his maiden tour title at the 285th time of asking on a topsy turvy day in Germany. After letting a two shot lead slip early on the back nine on Sunday, McEvoy laid up on the last, but still holed his birdie putt to take the title by a single shot. Our top ranked player, Patrick Reed, finished poorly for tied 9th and we had eight of the top nineteen plus ties (8/21).

Dustin Johnson (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the RBC Canadian Open on the US PGA Tour. The 34 year old American won his third tour title of the season in Canada. After several close calls in what is now almost his adopted homeland, Johnson delighted the home crowd with an imperious display of driving at Glen Abbey. The world number overpowered the course on the weekend to surge clear and win by three shots in the end. Including the winner, in a weather affected event where many of the bigger names failed to perform, we had only five of the top seventeen plus ties (5/21).
