2019 - Week 7 Winners

Ryan Fox (ranked 5th by Golf Predictor) won the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth on the European PGA Tour. The 32 year old Kiwi won his maiden title at the hybrid stroke play/match play event in Australia. Fox rode his luck slightly to make the matchplay final after several visits to the play-off hole and a couple of close matches. However, he only needed four holes to beat format specialist Adrian Otaegui in the final. Our top ranked golfer, Justin Harding, narrowly missed out on the matchplay section and finished in tied 26th. Overall, we had eight of the top seventeen plus ties (8/19) in the breezy conditions.

J.B. Holmes (ranked 41st by Golf Predictor) won the Genesis Open title on the US PGA Tour. The 36 year old American won his fifth tour title in the trying conditions in Los Angeles. The insufferably slow Holmes took advantage of a poor final day by third round leader Justin Thomas to overcome a four shot deficit and win by a shot. Our top ranked golfer, Dustin Johnson, overcame a poor first round to finish in tied 9th and we had thirteen of the top fifteen plus ties (13/24) in total at the weather affected event.
