With 2,250,000 points, all of them move into top 48 of overall leaderboard: https://www.golfbettingsystem.co.uk/gol ... 021-rules/

Top five (of around 300 teams), with The Open to come in July:

Fwiw, my side is in top 20 with McIlroy as The Open selection, so can't overhaul at least one of the lead quintet.
