2019 - Week 48 Winner

Pablo Larrazabal (ranked 13th by Golf Predictor) won the Alfred Dunhill Championship on the European PGA Tour. The 36 year old Spaniard won his fifth tour title with an amazing performance at sweltering Leopard Creek. Leading by three shots going into the final day, Larrazabal could barely walk on Sunday due to blisters on his feet. That caused him to go out in 41 and drop eight shots in his first thirteen holes. However, he somehow managed to carry on and steady the ship, finishing strongly to pip Joel Sjoholm by a single shot. In doing so, he became the first player ever to win a European Tour even while dropping that amount of shots in his final round! Our top ranked golfer, Eddie Pepperell finished in tied 19th and in an event that is usually difficult to predict, we had nine of the top nineteen plus ties (9/21) in total. 

There was no event on the US PGA Tour this week.
