2018 - Week 44 Winners

Lee Westwood (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the Nedbank Golf Challenge on the European PGA Tour. The 45 year old Englishman won his twenty fourth tour title in a final day battle with home favourite Louis Oosthuizen and long-time leader Sergio Garcia. Despite trailing Garcia overnight by three shots, Westwood shot a brilliant closing 64 (-8) on the tough Sun City layout to take the title by three shots. A delighted Westwood was emotional afterwards, having ended a barren spell of four years. Our top ranked golfer, Rory McIlroy, never really fired and finished in tied 21st. Overall, we had fourteen of the top sixteen plus ties (14/26*) in total. 

Matt Kuchar (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the Mayakoba Golf Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 40 year old American also ended a four year barren spell with victory in Mexico. Despite having  a four shot cushion overnight, Kuchar needed a two putt par from distance on the last to win by a single shot over Danny Lee. Our top ranked golfer, Rickie Fowler, finished in tied 16th and we had twelve of the top twenty one plus ties (12/25).

*Withdrawals/non-starts promoted Pavan into the top 26 of the GP rankings.
