I was watching what little of the tournament I could catch this weekend and got to see Phil play a little. He just baffles me. Phil has a TON of talent and yet seems so far away from putting it together. It seems that every time I watch him, he hits so many errant shots that it's not funny. I know he has been known to go for the lower percentage, make it or break it type shots. But when do you stop doing that and start doing what it takes to get on a streak?
It almost seems to like he is too caught up in how far he can hit it instead of just getting it on the green and scoring. It's like watching one of my buddies who refuses to club back and swing smooth to keep it in play. Phil's short game is nothing short of brilliant (most of the time), so why not lay off the "bombs" and keep it in the fairway and score? I know there is more too it than that and I. obviously, am not the one to give a Pro golfer advice. But I would like to think that if I had his talent and on the PGA tour, I would be finishing better than he does.
I expect to get bashed for this I guess, but I just don't get it.
