Eddie Pepperell leads the British players on points after finishing in a play-off at the Irish Open.

TAGS:

With 2015 European Tour winners Andy Sullivan and Danny Willett both in the field at the Irish Open, you could have been forgiven for not selecting Eddie Pepperell as your British choice.

However, Pepperell came up with the goods as he finished in a play-off with eventual winner Soren Kjeldsen and Bernd Wiesberger and earned some of you 345 points.

PGA Tour

Steven Bowditch secured the big points at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, while Charley Hoffman and Jimmy Walker finished T2 and both picked up 345 points.

European Tour

Pepperell and Wiesberger may have lost their play-off against Kjeldsen, but they were the big winners on the fantasy points list. The duo picked up 345 points for their efforts at Royal County Down.

It was a good tournament overall for the British, with Tyrrell Hatton, Sullivan and Willett all picking up over 250 points.

Overall

Team Monty’s Majors leads the way atop the overall standings, with last week’s leaders Sportsbob’s scramblers dropping to second, just three points behind.

However, Monty’s Majors opted for the wrong Australian as it turned out, with Marc Leishman missing the cut at the AT&T.

 

Who’s hot and who’s not

Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Alexander Noren were the most popular transfers in the last week.

Players who were deemed surplus to requirements were Justin Rose, Zach Johnson and Adam Scott. With three majors beween them, there’s clearly no place for sentimentality.
