2019 - Week 38 Winners

Danny Willett (ranked 33rd by Golf Predictor) won the BMW PGA Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 31 year old Englishman delighted the home fans by winning his sixth tour title with an impressive final round at Wentworth. Tied with Jon Rahm overnight, Willett got off to a great start on Sunday and was never caught, despite the Spaniard's best efforts. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, once shot himself out of a tournament early, but still finished tied ninth with a strong comeback. Overall, we had eleven of the top seventeen plus ties (11/20) on the testing Wentworth layout. 

Sebastian Munoz (ranked 18th by Golf Predictor) won the Sanderson Farms Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 26 year old Colombian won his first tour title in a play-off in Jackson. Trailing Sungjae Im by a stroke after 71 holes, Munoz birdied the difficult closing hole to force a play-off. After both missed the fairway and then the green, Munoz prevailed with a par putt on the first extra hole after Im pulled his effort badly wide. Our top ranked player, Brandt Snedeker, finished in tied 45th and we had nine of the top eighteen plus ties (9/22) in an event that is traditionally hard to call.
