2020 - Week 39 Winners

John Catlin (ranked 4th by Golf Predictor) won the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open on the European PGA Tour. The 29 year old American won his second tour title in four weeks with a terrific final day at Galgorm Castle. Trailing by three shots overnight, Catlin finished with a bogey free 64 (-6) to overtake long time leader Aaron Rai and hold on for a one shot win. Rai had a chance to catch him, but got a terrible lie for his third shot on the par five finishing hole and had to settle for second place. Home favourite Shane Lowry was our top ranked player, but he disappointingly missed the cut. Overall, we had nine of the top fourteen plus ties (9/21*) in the weak fielded event. 


Hudson Swafford (ranked 66th by Golf Predictor) won the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship on the US PGA Tour. The 33 year old American won his second tour title with an up and down performance in the Dominican Republic. Swafford came out of the blocks quickly on Sunday, opening up a four shot lead at one point. He stumbled on the back nine, dropping three shots to let the field back into it. However, a birdie on the seventeenth allowed him to steady the ship and beat Tyler McCumber by a single shot. Our top ranked player, Henrik Stenson, finished in tied 21st and we had eleven of the top twenty one plus ties (11/27) in this second string event.

*Soderberg was a WD, promoting Canter into the top 21 of the GP Rankings.
