2019 - Week 41 Winners

Bernd Wiesberger (ranked 8th by Golf Predictor) won the Italian Open on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old Austrian continued his great season by winning for the third time this season. Wiesberger finished with a flawless 65 (-6) to beat overnight leader Matthew Fitzpatrick by a single shot. The Englishman will rue the seven on the par five ninth hole on Sunday. Our top ranked player, Justin Rose, had a very poor Saturday, but bounced back on Sunday to finish in tied 15th. Overall, we had ten of the top eighteen plus ties (10/23). 

Lanto Griffin (ranked 16th by Golf Predictor) won the Houston Open on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old American won his first tour title with an impressive final day performance in Texas. Griffin prevailed in a battle with fellow recent Korn Ferry Tour graduates Scott Harrington and Mark Hubbard to win by a shot. Our top ranked player, Henrik Stenson, was one of many bigger names who failed to perform and disappointingly missed the cut. Overall, we only had seven of the top twenty one plus ties (7/22).
