Victor Perez has been voted the Golfer of the Month presented by DP World.
Frenchman Victor Perez has been crowned Golfer of the Month presented by DP World for May after securing his second DP World Tour title at the Dutch Open, receiving 36.6% of the public vote.
Perez made three starts in May, recording solid tied 21st and tied 33rd finishes at the Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett and Soudal Open respectively, but with only one top-10 so far this season - at the ISPS Handa Championship in Spain - his second DP World Tour title came as a welcome surprise.
Perez put together rounds of 67-70-69 to tie the lead with England's Matt Wallace after three rounds at Bernardus Golf Club. Sunday turned into one of the most action-packed rounds of the season with a number of players battling for the lead. Perez went out in 33, three-under par, but was leapfrogged by Ryan Fox - a two-time winner this season who was putting together one of the rounds of the week. But the Kiwi fell back at the 18th with a double bogey seven, to go up against Perez in the play-off.
Perez holed a number of lengthy putts down the stretch, and carried on that streak, sinking another putt of over 40ft on the fourth extra hole to take home his first DP World Tour title since the 2019 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
American Justin Thomas was second in the voting, after winning his second USPGA Championship at the famed Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In what was a brutal test for the second Major Championship of the year, Thomas trailed the leader Mito Pereira by seven shots entering the final round and as the leaders fell back, Thomas pounced with a bogey-free back nine 32 to post the clubhouse lead at five-under par.
He was matched by fellow American Will Zalatoris, who holed a lengthy par putt to tie the lead. The two headed for a three-hole aggregate playoff across holes 13-17-18 which Thomas played in two-under par to take home the title.
Rounding off the top three in the voting was Thorbjørn Olesen, who won the Betfred British Masters at The Belfry. The Dane finished eagle-birdie across the iconic layout to win his sixth DP World Tour title and first title since the 2018 Italian Open.
