I don't think you'll see all three contend though. Rory's struggled on tough courses with fast greens. I do think Jordan and Day will both do well there. But Oakmont is gonna be more of a blood bath then shootout.
Right, or that Masters blow up messes with him so much, he's done. Ridiculous, won his 3rd tournament off the Masters debacle. He's 22, it's Tiger-esque.
Don't believe he'll get 79 wins or 14 majors cuz the field is a lot deeper than in Tiger's day, but he's gonna be one of the greatest ever, and I think Rory and JDay will be too.
I'd include Koepka, DeChambeau, and maybe Martin Piller in there (he's had some recent good form). Also Grillo has been playing very well after earning his card.
And 'next' would be like 5-10 years off. The current names have spent a bit of time earning their lasting rep already and these new guys will have to do the same.
The article notes a few - volume of potential targets engaged with more rounds carried (though I expect the batteries / capacitors that this beast will need will take up some of that room), bunker busting, very long range, flatter trajectories, smart terminal guidance, potential for use against asymmetric targets with less collateral damage.
It does sound wicked costly though, and I think practical anti-missile targeting capability is probably a ways off.
