2020 - Week 37 Winners

George Coetzee (ranked 7th by Golf Predictor) won the Portugal Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 34 year old South African won his fifth tour title with an impressive final round display in Vilamoura. Coetzee got off to a steady start on Sunday, parring until he birdied the difficult seventh hole. He then gave an superb display of frontrunning, finishing the round in four under par to win by two shots from Laurie Canter. Our top ranked player, late entrant Tommy Fleetwood, finished strongly for tied 3rd and we had seven of the top fourteen plus ties (7/23) at the birdiefest in the Algarve. 

Stewart Cink (ranked 79th by Golf Predictor) won the Safeway Open on the US PGA Tour. The 47 year old American won his seventh tour title in California eleven years after his last victory. With his son on the bag, the likeable Cink beat a host of more fancied younger guns to win in Napa. Our top ranked player, Shane Lowry, was one of the many bigger names who didn't perform and missed the cut. Overall, we had only four of the top fourteen plus ties (4/22) in the weak fielded event.
