Round 4 of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship produced 40 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 71.09 at St Andrews. David Howell emerged as the winner from a playoff against Peter Uihlein. We analyse their tournament performances and round up the final Genworth Statistics.

David HOWELL -23

David Howell converted six birdies against a single bogey on his way to a final round 67, emerging as the winner from a playoff with Peter Uihlein. Looking at his Genworth Statistics for the week, the 38 year old Englishman performed steadily off the tee with 43/61 fairways but was exceptional with his approach play hitting 64/72 Greens in Regulation. To be fair there were no real weaknesses at all, with great scoring across the different hole types (Par 3’s / Par 4’s / Par 5’s) and being one of seven players to drop only three shots all week. With this win David climbs up to 12th on the Race to Dubai.

Peter UIHLEIN -23

Peter Uihlein converted four birdies against a single bogey on his way to a final round 69, eventually finishing as runner-up from the playoff with Howell. Looking at his Genworth Statistics for the week, the 24 year old talent from the United States drove the ball long as usual and hit 63/72 Greens in Regulation, plus he made the most eagles, led the overall Par 4 Scoring and steered clear of all the bunkers (showing great course management). With one win already under his belt this year, Peter has now finished runner-up in two out of his last three events, and climbs up to 10th on the Race to Dubai.
