I really like this guy. Such a cool demeanor and I hope he kicks serious ass for many years to come.

post #59 of 72

Impressive the way he stuck with it and came back from +9 his first eight holes last week to finish t2 playing a back nine Sunday that gave him a chance to win.

 

Looking at his OWGR, it seems like he has really had a break through with his game this year.  Not unheard, especially for a young guy, but what do you think took him to the next level?

 

FWIW, with only 28 events and nothing rolling out in the next 5 weeks, there is a good chance for his ranking to continue to climb.

Another solid HUH performance at The Players!

post #61 of 72

John will play well this week at Colonial.  Reason-I didn't pick him in TST Fantasy Golf!

post #62 of 72

He withdrew last week...was he hurt or just playing poorly?

John Huh withdrew after 12 holes in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship due to an elbow injury.

The rookie walked off after a double bogey at the par-4 third hole. He was 8-over-par on the round with five bogeys and two doubles at the time. He opened with an even-par 70 on Thursday. If he's able, Huh will try again next week at Colonial where he's listed in the published field.

After 3rd round, John is in 5th place!  If I used him, he would have missed the cut,  lol

Well, John is poised high up in FedEx cup rankings and with the start of the playoffs he got off to a bang. But on movind day yesterday, he was moving, but in the wrong direction. Let's see what today brings!

 

Let's go HUH

post #66 of 72

Definitely some good rookies out there including Huh, Harris English, Bud Cauley, Noh, Potter Jr, Harmon, Chistian and Blixt, but not all of the good young guns are in the playoffs including http://thesandtrap.com/t/61140/ben-kohles-impressive, and http://thesandtrap.com/t/61591/trivia-which-player

He's really lit a fire under all of us that know him. I know I've never practiced as hard as I have been...

 

What did Foltz have to say?

 

 

 

I remember this episode of Morning Drive and distinctly remembered this thread and Ben. That was when I was having serious hand issues though and swore off all unnecessary computer use at that time, or I would have posted.

 

Foltz said "I was doing some research into this John Huh guy and literally found next to nothing...until I found this blog/website (sorry Erik, he called this place a "blog"a3_biggrin.gif) and found a post by a mini-tour player who knew John and played with him and had nothing but great things to say." I'm paraphrasing of course as this episode was months ago.

 

Both GW and Foltz admitted that this was the only information on Huh out at that time, so thanks Ben. It was a really cool moment on the show if you're an avid Sandtrapper.

 

He never once mentioned the Sandtrap or Ben by name, but being that Ben has now confirmed Foltz PM'd him, my instincts were correct they were talking about this thread. Cool.

John had a great round yesterday of -6 which has him up near the lead and just barely inside the top 30 heading into round 3 of the BMW today. He's been paired with Adam Scott both days so far. He's still got Adam in his group along with Zack Johnson now. How cool!

 

Let's see another 66 today! (or better of course!)

1 Win

26th FedEx Cup. Only rookie to make the Tour Championship.

20/26 Cuts made

4 Top 10s

65th OWGR

 

Undisputed Rookie of the Year? I'd certainly hope so.

 

Super year John HUH!

I agree, but to play devils advocate, Bud Cauley has 2 more top 10s, a lower scoring ave and is ranked 55 (in part because of his good play at the end of last season which doesn`t count towards this year ROY).  

 

If Cauley or someone like Seung Yul Noh (lower scoring ave, fewer missed cuts and more top 25s than either Huh or Cauley) were to win a fall series event, then the picture would get pretty clouded.

yeah I noticed Cauley was higher up in OWGR. Didn't know about the top 10s stats though. I know he would be the other big competition for John. But come on, Its gotta be HUH!

I think Jonas Blixt just put himself in contention for rookie of the year by winning this week in his 19th event of the season.  With 9 fewer starts than Huh, he has more top 3s and more top 10s than Huh and is not too far behind him on the money list.  I would still give the nod to Huh, but another strong finish by Blixt could make it really close.
