Raphael Jacquelin - (France) Open de Espana Valencia - 18th to 21st April, 2013 Raphael Jacquelin from France was held at bay by very competitive play from Filipe Aguilar and Maximilian Kieffer and was therefore forced into a playoff. The first to fall away was Aquilar and then it took another five holes before Jacquelin won on the tenth play of the 18th hole with an approach shot to within five feet of the hole. This win was his first since 2011 and his 446th European Tour event moving him from 146th in the Rankings to 95th position. He also became the third Frenchman to win the Open de Espana.

For the third time this month the event was settled with a playoff. Happily an eagle on the first extra hole gave him victory over both Marcus Fraser and Peter Whiteford. This was his first big win since 2007 and the second Australian to win the prestigious Ballantine's Championship.

Tiger Woods - (USA) WGC Cadillac Championship Florida - 7th to 10th March, 2013 The outstanding natural golf talent of Tiger Woods once more shone through against Rory McIlroy playing one of his best games.

However, this is the 17th win in 41 appearances in the WGC Championship. This is only the second win this 2013 season with the other being the Farmers Insurance Open held in the USA.
