2018 - Week 43 Winners

Justin Rose (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the Turkish Airlines Open on the European PGA Tour. The 38 year old Englishman successfully defended a title for the first time with a play-off victory in Turkey. Rose came from three shots back to overtake overnight leader Hao-Tong Li early on the back nine. However, two closing bogeys by the Englishman saw the duo finish level after seventy two holes. After hitting a great tee shot and approach shot, unfortunately Li handed Rose the title when he missed a tiddler for par on the first extra hole. Rose was our top ranked player and returned to world number one with his win. Overall, we had eleven of the top eighteen plus ties (11/22).

Bryson DeChambeau (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the US PGA Tour. The 25 year old American won his fourth title of the year (and first of the new season) by a single shot from defending champion Patrick Cantlay. DeChambeau surged clear late on the back nine with an eagle on the sixteenth, but when Cantlay birdied the last, he only had the minimum advantage up the last. However, DeChambeau kept his cool and tapped in for the winning par. Our top ranked player, Rickie Fowler, finished tied 4th and we had nine of the top fifteen plus ties (9/22).
