2019 - Week 46 Winners

Tommy Fleetwood (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the Nedbank Golf Challenge on the European PGA Tour. The 28 year old Englishman came from behind with a scintillating final round to win at Sun City. Despite trailing overnight by six shots, Fleetwood came through the field with a closing 65 (-7) on the tough Sun City layout to tie Marcus Kinhult after 72 holes. Fleetwood's round included an incredible three eagles in six hole stretch from the ninth. He then took the title with a par on the first extra hole after the young Dane had to chip out to the fairway with his second shot. Fleetwood was our top ranked golfer and we had nine of the top seventeen plus ties (9/19) in total. 

Brendan Todd (ranked 76th by Golf Predictor) won the Mayakoba Golf Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 34 year old American came back on Monday to close out the win in Mexico. That made it two wins in a row for Todd, in his continuing resurgence after a fallow period. Our top ranked golfer, Tony Finau, once again failed to impress in a weaker field and missed the cut. Overall, in an event plagued by weather delays, we had only four of the top eighteen plus ties (4/19).
