2019 - Week 6 Winners

David Law (ranked 60th by Golf Predictor) won the inaugural ISPS Handa Vic Open on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Scot won his maiden tour title with a fantastic finish in Australia. Trailing Wade Ormsby by three shots with three shots to play, Law closed with birdie-par-eagle to win by a single shot after a costly double bogey-birdie finish by Ormsby. Our top ranked player, Justin Harding, finished 4th and in a new tour event with a poor field and where many of the bigger names did not perform, we had only seven of the top seventeen plus ties (7/21).

Phil Mickelson (ranked 8th by Golf Predictor) won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on the US PGA Tour. The 48 year old American won his forty fourth tour event and fifth on the scenic Pacific layout. Trailing by three shots overnight, Mickelson overtook Paul Casey to win by three shots with a fine closing 65 (-7). Our top ranked player, Dustin Johnson, failed to shake off the effects of a long journey from Saudi Arabia, finishing in tied 45th. Overall, we only had five of the top eighteen plus ties (5/21) in the weather affected event.
