Mark Wilson birdied the second playoff hole to win the frost-delayed Phoenix Open on Monday, beating out Jason Dufner and winning his second tournament in less than a month and fourth of his career. Wilson, who also won the Sony Open in Hawaii three weeks ago, moved into first place in the FedExCup standings with the victory.

Wilson was ranked No. 230 in the world rankings at the end of 2010, but after winning two of the three tournaments he’s entered in 2011, he’s moved up to No. 51 and secured a spot in the 64-man field at the Accenture Match Play Championships.

A day earlier, Thomas Bjorn of Denmark won the Qatar Masters by four shots. World No. 1 Lee Westwood missed the cut in Qatar, but No. 2 Martin Kaymer failed to capitalize, finished T28, 12 shots behind Bjorn.

As for our head-to-head picks, we had another winning week: 4-1 in Qatar, and 3-1-2 in Phoenix. That 7-2-2 overall record for the week  brings our 2011 record up to 28-14-6.
