2019 - Week 33 Winners

Thomas Pieters (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the D+D REAL Czech Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 27 year old Belgian won his fourth tour title and first in three years in Prague. In doing so, Pieters became the first man to win the event twice and continued his streak of winning all his events in the month from mid August! Pieters had built up a four shot cushion on the back nine, but a good finish by Adri Arnaus meant the final winning margin was a single shot. Our top ranked player, Bernd Wiesberger, finished 30th and we had only five of the top eighteen plus ties (5/23) in the weak fielded event. 

Justin Thomas (ranked 6th by Golf Predictor) won the second event of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the BMW Championship. The 26 year old American won his tenth tour title with an impressive victory at Medinah. Leading by six overnight, Thomas was put under some pressure by Patrick Cantlay and others, with his lead being reduced to two shots at one stage. However, he steadied the ship down the stretch and won by three in the end. Our top ranked player, Brooks Koepka, finished well for tied 24th and we had twelve of the top nineteen plus ties (12/23).
