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.
