PHP Non Iso Dates

Extremely frustrated and out of my control problem, as the system I'm integrating with was written by another consultant, but he stores a week number / year number in a database field.

For example 02/16.

Unfortunately, the guy doesn't know anything about date standards and starts 1/1/2015 as week 1, even though it's only a three day week, then 1/4/2015 begins week 2.

However, users use my program, date("w", strtotime("2016-01-04")) returns week number 1, wherein, his system written in VB returns week 2.

Is there a way in PHP to match his dumb logic?

Thanks in advance!
