2019 - Week 2 Winner

In the first full field event of the year on the US PGA Tour, Matt Kuchar (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Sony Open in Hawaii. After waiting four and a half years for his eight career win in November, the 40 year old American won for the second time in two months in Hawaii. After opening with a pair of 63s, Kuchar closed with a pair of 66s to win by four shots from Andrew Putnam. Kuchar didn't have it all his own way as he actually lost the lead to Putnam after a shaky start on Sunday. However, he bounced back with a strong back nine to win comfortably in the end. Our top ranked player, Justin Thomas, finished in tied 16th and we had only six of the top sixteen plus ties (6/19) in total as the field brushed off the Christmas cobwebs!

There was no event on the European Tour this week.
