Brandt Snedeker future #1 in the WGR?
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
1.) Breaking TW down on where he stands to make it to #1
2.) Giving us run downs on the strength of tournaments
He would be able to tell you exactly what Sneds would have to do to make it to #1. Come on Brocks! Come back to TST. I miss your insight and analysis.
Of course he will become the number 1 if he finishes in the top 2 in every tournament he plays. But that won't happen (remember Mahan or Wilson last year - they looked unbeatable too for a month). It would really surprise me if he passes Woods or McIlroy. But I think he can be a solid top 5 player, if he can maintain his form.
And the tournaments he played this year so far didn't have really strong fields (OWGR-Points: 40, 50 and 52).
He has missed more than 25% of the cuts in events he has entered in his career. Tiger has missed less than 6%
cough facts cough
Let's not get carried away with ourselves. A month of golf is not a season. Cf. Hunter Mahan last year.
Not stack up to tiger or Phil? In all fairness Phil shot a 60 on Thursday, and he wasn't really in contention on the weekend. So it's not as if they were tied going into Sunday and he bombed. Oh and where was Phil this weekend? Seems that Phil didn't stack up to Brandt. I think he will get there, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald both made it there without a major.
I think you're confusing which week Phil shot 60. He shot it last week... when he won.
Yeah. I'm not sure what the point of this thread is. If ANY player keeps finishing in the top 5 he'll be #1 in the world eventually (unless someone else does even better).
My comment was geared towards his saying tiger and Phil beat him the last two weeks
I know any player can consistently be in the top 5 and get there. This thread was started because I think he will be number 1. It's not as if he's been crappy up until the last 3 weeks. He is also a guy that doesn't tinker. He finds what works and goes with. We still don't know what Rory is going to bring this year, nor Tiger for that matter. I am not saying he is the greatest ever nor am I saying he is a superior player to Tiger or Rory. He simply plays more and consistently makes cuts and finishes well.
