2020 - Week 6 Winners

Min Woo Lee (ranked 8th by Golf Predictor) won the ISPS Handa Vic Open on the European PGA Tour. The 21 year old Australian won his maiden tour title in front of home fans in Australia. In doing so, Lee made it a unique family affair, emulating his sister who has won the female event twice. Lee was well clear on the final day, until a brilliant finish by Ryan Fox in the windy conditions meant he onlyhad a one shot lead going to the last. However, Lee birdied the finishing hole to put a little more daylight between him and the fast finishing Kiwi. Our top ranked player, Lucas Herbert, finished tied 12th and in the event with a poor field and challenging weather, we had six of the top twenty plus ties (6/21).

Nick Taylor (ranked 37th by Golf Predictor) won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on the US PGA Tour. The 31 year old Canadian won his second tour event with a wire to wire victory on the scenic Pacific layout(s). Despite a wobble on the back nine on Sunday in very windy conditions, Taylor steadied the ship to win by four shots from event specialist Kevin Streelman. Our top ranked player, Dustin Johnson, failed to shake off the effects of a long journey from Saudi Arabia, finishing in tied 32nd with a poor finish. Overall, we had eight of the top eighteen plus ties (8/24) in the weather affected event.
