2019 - Week 29 Winners

Shane Lowry (ranked 36th by Golf Predictor) won The Open Championship on the European/US PGA Tour. The 32 year old Irishman delighted the huge home crowd with a brilliant victory at Royal Portrush, which was hosting the tournament for the first time since 1951. Leading by four overnight after a brilliant 63 on Saturday, Lowry was never really threatened in the extremely difficult conditions on Sunday and won by six shots in the end. Our top ranked player, Brooks Koepka, started poorly on Sunday, but still finished tied 4th and we had eleven of the top twenty plus ties (11/29) in the weather affected tournament. 

Jim Herman (ranked 96th by Golf Predictor) won the Barbasol Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 41 year old American overcome some poor form to win his second tour title in Kentucky. Despite only making Sunday twice in nineteen events this season, Herman came out on top by one stroke at the birdie fest, pipping Kelly Kraft to the title. Our top ranked player, Jhonattan Vegas, finished in 64th and we had seven of the top eighteen plus ties (7/21) in total in this second tier event.
