2019 - Week 38 Predictions/Statistics Online

The predictions and statistics for this week, the BMW PGA Championship (European PGA Tour) and the Sanderson Farms Championship (US PGA Tour), are now available on Golf Predictor. It's the flagship event on the European Tour this week and the new spot in the schedule has tempted Rory McIlroy and several other PGA Tour stars to tee it up on the testing Wentworth layout. While eight of the top twenty in the world will be teeing it up in England, a somewhat weaker line up will be battling it out in Mississippi. While stronger than other years, only four of the world's top one fifty that will be playing in the event, so there is a decent chance of a surprise winner!

2019 - Week 37 Winners

Sergio Garcia (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won the KLM Open on the European PGA Tour. The 39 year old Spaniard won his sixteenth tour title on his début in the event. Garcia, who had an up and down front nine, went three shots clear after sixteen holes. However, a bogey on the penultimate hole and a closing birdie by Nicolai Hojgaard meant Garcia won by a single stroke from the young Dane in the end. Our top ranked player, Patrick Reed, finished in tied 15th and in an event on a new course where many of the bigger names failed to perform, we had only six of the top fifteen plus ties (6/20).

Joaquin Niemann (ranked 8th by Golf Predictor) won the A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier on the US PGA Tour. The 20 year old became the first Chilean to win on tour with an assured final round at Old White TPC. Niemann won in style with a great display of putting on Sunday to pull away and win by six shots in the end. Our top ranked player, Bryson DeChambeau, missed the cut and in an event with a lot of Korn Ferry Tour graduates, we had eight of the top nineteen plus ties (8/23) in total.

2019 - Week 35 winner

Sebastian Soderberg (ranked 76th by Golf Predictor) won the Omega European Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Swede won his first tour title by in a five man play-off in the scenic Swiss mountains.After he three putted the penultimate hole from seven feet, it looked like Soderberg's chances were gone. However, a par at the last was good enough to get in a play-off with Rory McIlroy, Andres Romero, Lorenzo Gagli and Kalle Samooja. Soderberg was the only man to find the fairway on the first extra hole and was one of three in close with their second shots. The Swede putted first and his birdie put McIlroy and Samooja off sufficiently to miss from closer in. McIlroy was our top ranked player and in an event where many of the bigger names failed to perform, we had only five of the top twelve plus ties (5/19). 

There was no event on the US PGA Tour this week.
