2019 - Week 19 Winners

Marcus Kinhult (ranked 69th by Golf Predictor) won the Betfred British Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 22 year old Swede claimed his maiden tour title with a resilient final day performance at Hillside Golf Club. After bogeying fifteen and sixteen on Sunday to fall one back, Kinhult rebounded with two closing birdies to pip his more fancied opponents to the title. Our top ranked player, host Tommy Fleetwood, finished in tied 8th, and we had eight of the top fifteen plus ties (8/22).

Sung-Hoon Kang (ranked 36th by Golf Predictor) won the AT&T Byron Nelson on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old South Korean won his maiden tour title at the birdie fest in Texas. After rain softened the defenceless course, Kang won the shoot out with a bunch of timely birdies on the back nine. Our top ranked player, Brooks Koepka, finished in 4th and we had only three of the top seventeen plus ties (3/19*) in total in the weather affected event.

*Withdrawals mean Sabbatini & Piercy are promoted to the top nineteen.
