2019 - Week 18 Winners

Mikko Korhonen (ranked 16th by Golf Predictor) won the Volvo China Open on the European PGA Tour. The 38 year old Finn won his second tour title with an impressive putting display on the final day in Beijing. In an exciting final day battle with overnight leader Benjamin Hebert and last week's winner Jorge Campillo, Korhonen used his flat stick to great effect, defeating Hebert on the first extra hole of a play-off with a birdie. Our top ranked player, home favourite Hao-Tong Li, finished 4th and we had eleven of the top nineteen plus ties (11/28*).

Max Homa (ranked 118th by Golf Predictor) won the Wells Fargo Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 28 year old American put his travails behind him with an impressive display at Quail Hollow. The world number 417 held off some big names, including course specialist Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler and survived a weather delay to win by three shots. McIlroy was out top ranked player and he finished in tied 8th. Overall, we had thirteen of the top eighteen plus ties (13/23**) in total on the testing layout.
