2018 - Week 37 Winners

Ashun Wu (ranked 58th by Golf Predictor) won the KLM Open on the European PGA Tour. The 33 year old Chinese golfer won his third tour title in a final day battle with Chris Wood. After leading for the opening two days, Wu surrendered the lead after the third round to the Englishman. Despite regaining the upper hand briefly early on Sunday, Wu found himself chasing most of the day and was let back into it when Wood double bogeyed the twelfth. Wu hung in with some gutsy par saves and a tremendous approach on the last which set up what was to be the winning birdie. Despite finding the final green in two, Wood couldn't match him and fell short by a single shot. That made both Wu and me very happy, as I had backed/tipped him at 100/1! Our top ranked player, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, disappointingly missed the cut, but we had fourteen of the top twenty four plus ties (14/27).

There was no event on the US PGA Tour this week.
