2019 - Week 43 Winners

Steven Brown (ranked 74th by Golf Predictor) won the Portugal Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 32 year old Englishman won his first tour title with an impressive display in Vilamoura. Needing at least a third place finish to secure his card for next season, Brown held his nerve impressively with a closing 66 to put his poor season behind him and win by a shot from Justin Walters. That 66 included a brilliant 267 yard second shot on the long 12th to about five feet to set up an eagle. Our top ranked player, Matt Wallace, finished in tied 8th and we had eight of the top fourteen plus ties (8/20) at the birdiefest in the Algarve. 

Tiger Woods (ranked 10th by Golf Predictor) won the inaugural ZOZO Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 43 year old American won his record equalling 82nd title with an impressive performance at the first ever tour event held in Japan. Coming off  a relatively long lay-off and yet more knee surgery, Woods went wire to wire to add to his legend and tie Sam Snead for most tour wins. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, overcame a slow start yet again to finish in tied 3rd. Overall, we had nine of the top seventeen plus ties (9/21) in total in this restricted field event.
