What will the top 5 in the world look like in 5 years?

18 posts in this topic

What do you guys think the top five in the world will look like 5 years from now? I know that some of the guys who might be are still way under the radar, so just use guys currently on tour. If you feel like it, you can give a guess at how many points each person will have.

For reference, the top 5 in the world as of the end of the PGA Championship:
1. Tiger Woods...........18.36
2. Phil Mickelson..........9.87
3. Padraig Harrington....7.85
4. Sergio Garcia...........6.13
5. Vijay Singh..............5.63

I'll start:
1. Tiger Woods.............17.5
2. Anthony Kim.............10.0
3. Sergio Garcia............7.0
4. Justin Rose...............5.5
5. Robert Karlsson.........5.0

I think Tiger will still be #1, but I expect Anthony Kim to be #2. He may be arrogant, but Kim definetly has got some game.
Beyond that, Im not sure. Im sure Phil will still be hanging around the top 5 and I expect a couple young players who arent well-known to move up by then.

Yes you are definately in the minority. The guy is the greatest out there. He had knee surgery and will be back. It was not career threatening.

1. tiger.

This is the best list I've seen, IMHO. It's hard for me to think of Tiger NOT being #1, but he will at least still be in the top 5. Paddy and Sergio will continue their good play and perhaps elevate each other with this mini-rivalry they seem to have developed. If Kim continues on the path he's on now, he might well be the best bet to dethrone Tiger in the next five years. He's got the talent and he doesn't seem to be scared of anything... yet. And Phil will still be hanging onto the top 5 by some magic that most of us still don't understand.

Tiger will come back and get back to business as usual: winning. He is expected to fully recover and the doctors are saying that it wont hinder his golf swing, so I see no reason why his reign is over.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.

      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…

      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
