2019 - Week 30 Winners

Brooks Koepka (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational on the European/US PGA Tour. The 29 year old American won his first WGC title and second title of the season in the tournament's first staging in Memphis. Despite only arriving at the course less than an hour before his tee time, Koepka won easily, finishing three shots clear of Webb Simpson. The final round shoot-out with his final round playing partner Rory McIlroy never materialised, with the Northern Irishman closing another up and down tournament with a poor performance. Koepka was our top ranked player and we had twelve of the top twenty plus ties (12/23) in total.

Colin Murikawa (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Barracuda Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 22 year old American rookie secured his first tour title with an impressive finish in the modified Stableford event. Morikawa birdied four of the last five holes to win by three points, thus realising his early potential. Our top ranked player, Martin Kaymer finished in tied 31st and we had eleven of the top eighteen plus ties (11/24*) in the second tier event. 

*Vegas withdrew due to the arrival of his new son, promoting Sloan to the top 24 of the GP Rankings.
