2019 - Week 42 Winners

Nicolas Colsaerts (ranked 41st by Golf Predictor) won the Amundi Open de France on the European PGA Tour. The 36 year old Belgian won his third tour title in Paris, seven years after his last victory. Colsaerts prevailed on a nervy final day to win by one from Joachim B. Hansen. Needing a good finish to secure his card, Colsaerts got off to a great start on Sunday, increasing his lead to five shots after the first hole. However, he still managed to crack and find himself two behind George Coetzee with six to play. When the South African cracked, he found himself one behind Hansen with two to play. However, the Dane cracked with a poor double on seventeen, allowing a relieved and emotional Colsaerts to win. Our top ranked player, Alex Noren, finished in tied eighteenth and we managed to have eleven of the top twenty three plus ties (11/25*) on the testing layout with a weak field.

Justin Thomas (ranked 2nd by Golf Predictor) won The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges on the US PGA Tour. The 26 year old American won his eleventh tour title and second CJ Cup in three years in South Korea. Thomas cemented his status as a good frontrunner by converting another 54 hole co-lead to take the title. Tied with Korean born Danny Lee overnight, Thomas prevailed by two shots after Lee carded two late bogeys to fall out of the running. Our top ranked player, Brooks Koepka, pulled out before the third round after slipping on a path and hurting his knee. Overall, we had thirteen of the top twenty plus ties (13/25) in the restricted field event.
