2019 - Week 15 Winner

Tiger Woods (ranked 16th by Golf Predictor) won the first major of the year, The Masters (European/US PGA Tour). The 43 year old American completed his fairytale return by finally adding to his total of fourteen majors, eleven years after winning his last one. After long time leader Francesco Molinari and others faltered on the back nine on Sunday, Woods turned on the style to edge clear of a stacked field and record a very popular fifth Masters victory. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, seemed to suffer under the burden of completing the career grand slam and finished in tied 21st. Overall, we had eighteen of the top twenty one plus ties (18/28).

2019 - Week 13 Winners

Kevin Kisner (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the WGC - Dell Technologies Matchplay on the European/US PGA Tour. The 35 year old American secured his first WGC title with a 3&2 win over Matt Kuchar in the final. It was a sweet victory for Kisner after he lost in the final last year. He never trailed in the final and Kuchar didn't play his best golf. Francesco Molinari defeated Lucas Bjerregaard in the third place play-off. Like previous years in Austin, a surprising number of the bigger names exited after the round robin stage.

Stephen Gallacher (ranked 46th by Golf Predictor) won the Hero Indian Open on the European PGA Tour. The 44 year old Scot ended a five year drought by winning his fourth tour title on the tough layout in New Delhi. On a course where many floundered, including the third round leaders, Gallacher overcame a quadruple bogey on the seventh hole on Sunday to finish strongly and win by a shot. It was an especially sweet victory for the Scot, as he had his son on the bag. Our top ranked player, Jazz Janewattananond, missed the cut and we had eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/22) in the weak fielded event.

Graeme McDowell (ranked 21st by Golf Predictor) won the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 39 year old Northern Irishman won his fourth tour title with a grinding performance in the Dominican Republic. After putting in back to back 64s on Friday and Saturday, it was a more workman like performance on Sunday that saw McDowell edge the title by a single shot after he bogeyed the final hole. Luckily for him, his nearest competitor Chris Stroud did worse, bogeying his two last holes. Our top ranked player, Sungjae Im, faded slightly over the weekend, but still finished in tied 7th. In this new second string event, we had twelve of the top twenty two plus ties (12/25).
