Week 20 - JASON DUFNER WINS THE HP BYRON NELSON CHAMPIONSHIP AND MOVES UP TO WORLD NUMBER 14
Jason Dufner's great form continued in Texas as he finished ahead of Dicky Pride to win the Byron Nelson Championship, his second win in his last three starts. The recently married 35-year-old holed a 25-foot putt on the 18th green to finish on 10-under-par for the week. Pride, without a win on the Tour, had kept himself in contention with a 40-foot putt on the 17th, but he could not match his rival's birdie on the final hole and finished second alone. JJ Henry holed in one on the par-three fifth and finished tied 3rd with Marc Leishmann, Joe Durant and Jonas Blixt. Dufner's victory sees him move to a career high of 14th in the Official World Golf Ranking, a jump of 7 positions.
Nicolas Colsaerts beat Graeme McDowell on the final green to win the Volvo World Match Play Championship. In blustery conditions at Finca Cortesin, the long hitting Belgian continued his remarkable record in Volvo-sponsored events. Since winning his maiden European Tour title at the Volvo China Open in 2011 he has finished third at last year’s Volvo World Match Play, fourth at the Volvo Golf Champions and second at the 2012 Volvo China Open. The win takes Nicholas to World Number 32, an improvement of 19 positions.
