In this week's fantasy golf round up, Justin Rose wins gold medal at the Olympics and Ryan Moore takes the John Deere Classic
Fantasy Golf Round Up: Justin Rose Wins Gold
Wow, what a week.
Not only did golf return to the Olympics for the first time in 112 years, we saw a Gold Medal for Team GB thanks to Justin Rose’s exquisite play.
The Englishman battled with Open Champion Henrik Stenson right down to the final shot on the final green.
Rose birdied the par-5 18th for Gold and 405 fantasy points whilst Stenson 3-putted for bogey to win the Silver Medal and pick up 345 points.
Matt Kuchar won the Bronze medal but was behind Ryan Moore in the ‘USA 1’ category.
Moore won the John Deere Classic in Illinois for his fifth PGA Tour title.
The man from Washington State had just one bogey all week as he finished at 22-under-par.
Each week the GM Tipster posts his betting tips. Last week he had his 13th winner of the season thanks to Ryan Moore and now stands at over 750 points up for the season.
