2020 - Week 38 Winners

Bryson DeChambeau (ranked 18th by Golf Predictor) won the US Open on the European/US PGA Tour. The 27 year old American won his first major, with a dominant final day performance at Winged Foot. Trailing Matthew Wolff by two shots overnight, DeChambeau soon overturned the deficit with some impressive, if deliberate play. Indeed, he was the only player under par on Sunday on the demanding layout and the only player to finish under par after 72 holes. In the end, his closing 67 was three shots better than any other score and he won by six shots on -6. Our top ranked player, Dustin Johnson, never  featured at the top end of the leaderboard, but still finished in tied 6th. Overall, we had eleven of the top twenty one plus ties (11/21) in the second major of the year. 

Garrick Higgo (ranked 3rd by Golf Predictor) won the Open de Portugal at Royal Obidos on the European PGA Tour. The 21 year old South African won his first tour title in only his seventh event with an impressive display in Portugal. Higgo played some great golf, not dropping a shot in his last two and a half rounds to win by a shot from Pep Angles. Our top ranked player, last week's winner George Coetzee, finished in tied 3rd and we only had four of the top eighteen plus ties (4/23) in the weak fielded and weather interrupted event.
